The Arrowverse actor left behind his cape and mask to don a new type of armor -- a suit -- in the upcoming spinoff series of the popular legal drama Suits, with Stephen Amell set to star as the lead character.

The original Suits series, which captivated audiences with its sharp wit and high-stakes legal battles, left a lasting legacy. Now, NBC is ready to expand this universe with Suits: LA. According to reports, the new series centers on Ted Black (played by Stephen Amell), a former federal prosecutor from New York who has reinvented himself as a powerful lawyer in Los Angeles.

Unlike the original Suits, which focused on corporate law, Suits: LA will dive into the glamorous and gritty world of entertainment law in Los Angeles. This fresh angle promises to bring new twists and turns, sure to keep fans on the edge of their seats. The official logline, as per IMDb, reads:

"Follows a new group led by Ted Black, a former New York prosecutor who built an L.A. law firm that specializes in criminal and entertainment law."

While Suits: LA is created by the same mind behind the original Suits, Aaron Korsh, and shares its fictional universe, it forges its own path separate from the characters and storylines of its predecessor, which famously starred Meghan Markle.

Considered a brand extension of the Suits universe, Suits: LA unfolds in the vibrant backdrop of Los Angeles, pivoting its focus from corporate law to the glitz and glamour of entertainment law. This spinoff introduces a fresh ensemble cast of characters, promising new narratives and legal showdowns.

Currently, there's no confirmation that any original Suits cast members, including Meghan Markle, will make appearances. But hey, a shared universe means we can dream of future crossovers or nods to our favorite characters!
