Season 6 of "Suits" has officially received a premiere date, and new episodes can be seen from Wednesday, July 13. With just over a couple of months left for the premiere, showrunner Aaron Korsh held a Twitter Q&A wherein he answered fans' questions regarding the upcoming season.
One of the most discussed topics regarding Season 6 of "Suits" is Rachel's (Meghan Markle) potential pregnancy, and most fans were sure to bring that to Korsh's attention. Secretive as he is, Korsh gave an open-ended answer to the question, saying: "That is an excellent question that I will answer by saying it would be an easy way to go."
This answer suggests that that would be a logical direction for Mike (Patrick J Adams) and Rachel's storline, but if the show were to defy conventions, it would not head that way. However, in answer to "Where do you get your inspirations from?" Korsh had replied that he gets it from fan reaction along with writer/cast enthusiasm, meaning Rachel's pregnancy could very well be written in, taking inspiration from the fan theories.
Regardless, Korsh has promised that there will be fun and light moments in the show, despite the way Season 5 ended. Pearson Specter Litt may have a long way to go and Mike may still be in prison, but there will always be time for snarky remarks, movie references and timely jokes, as proved by this twitter conversation:
"@iamwanderfull will there be more light funny moments and movie quotes this season?" Yes.
