Stephen Amell, popularly known for his portrayal of Oliver Queen, The Arrow, has been cast as the lead for the new ‘Suit’ spin-off series. The drama will be produced by the original creator of the fan-favorite legal show, Aaron Korsh. The upcoming drama will be set in LA, where the lead, Ted Black, who was a prosecutor in New York, will head his law firm practicing criminal and entertainment law with his new team of lawyers, as confirmed by Variety. NBC authorized the pilot episode for the spin-off earlier this month, and fans cannot contain their excitement.

The series will be part of the same universe as ‘Suits,’ according to Beatrice Springborn, the president of Universal International Studios. She stated that the show will feature good-looking people in great clothes, but that’s not enough. The producer then added, ‘It has to have great storytelling and great character work. So, how do you create something that can be ongoing, have a gloss to it…’


Casting Announcement and Character Speculation for “Suits” Spin-off:



The Canadian actor rose to fame through his portrayal of the famous DC vigilante, The Arrow, which eventually led to the inception of the popular ‘Arrowverse.’ The actor became a foundational pillar of the DC universe, substantiated by his various appearances across the Arrowverse, including shows like The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, etc., with numerous crossover arcs. After the series concluded in 2020, the actor delved into various projects, including STARZ’s wrestling drama “Heels” (2021-23) and “Code 8” (2020), an original Canadian film produced by Stephen Amell, starring him and his brother Robbie Amell.

The sci-fi drama is getting a sequel, set to release this year on Netflix. Suits had a successful run on American TV from 2011 to 2019, but the show gained more attention when it was released on Netflix in 2023, ultimately breaking many streaming records. The show is set in New York with a fictional law firm, ‘Pearson and Hardman,’ known as the best law firm in the city, with a strict policy of hiring lawyers only from Harvard University. However, this changes when Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), an intelligent young man with a photographic memory, meets Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), a successful attorney known nationwide as a cocky, unflappable man who has never lost a case.



While in search of his new associate, Harvey hires Mike, who has never attended any law school, let alone Harvard. The easy-to-understand plot and charismatic male characters were not the only highlights of the show; the writers must be applauded for creating powerful and influential female characters like Jessica Pearson, played by Gina Torres, Donna Paulsen by Sarah Rafferty, and also Rachel Zane by Meghan Markle (currently the Duchess of Sussex). After the show’s re-release on Netflix, Suits became the second most-streamed series with over 20.3 billion minutes. While news of a spin-off was previously revealed by the network, after a long wait, the creators have finally found someone to take on the
mantle – the new Harvey Specter! So far, the casting of the lead character has been announced, which couldn’t be more perfect.

Ted Black will be a charismatic lawyer who uses his charm and intelligence to solve any obstacles that come his way. According to the fans, Stephen Amell is the final choice for the role, as Ted Black and Oliver Queen have a bunch of similarities. Ted Black leaves New York, the reason for which hasn’t been revealed yet, but it will surely help to build a great story arc and some insane character development. The creator’s affirmation about the previous residence of Ted Black in New York leads to the theory that the show will have various references to Harvey Specter, Mike Ross, or even Jessica Pearson. If the cards are played right, there could be a chance that the fans might see the previous lead characters reprise their roles for a cameo
