‘Suits’ season 3 premiere date official along with ‘Covert Affairs,’ ‘Royal Pains’

SuitsWe’ve been speculating and writing away about “Suits” season 3 for some time, and now we have some welcomed news to finally share about it: the premiere date for the critically-acclaimed series along with some others on USA.

We’ve already told you that “Burn Notice” is going to drop on Thursday, June 6 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time, and it will be followed by the brand-new series “Graceland” from “White Collar” creator Jeff Eastin. “White Collar” itself will not premiere until the fall, likely due to star Matt Bomer filming a movie in “The Normal Heart” that limits his availability.

You will be able to return to the Hamptons for more “Royal Pains” beginning on Wednesday, June 12, and the season 3 premiere of “Necessary Roughness” will follow up soon after. (The latter series is going to have a shortened order this season, and will be wrapped up by the end of August.)

Sadly, fans of “Suits” are going to be waiting for a while, as season 3 officially begins on Tuesday, July 16 at 10:00. This is a new night for the series, which used to air on Thursdays. It will be a part of a lineup this year that also includes the new series “Covert Affairs.”

USA is clearly starting to move slowly and surely towards a model that allows there to be more new programming airing throughout the year; we already know that “White Collar” is going to dominate the fall schedule, and it is possible that the eighth (and final?) season of “Psych” will once again come on in February 2014.
