Patrick J. Adams and Sarah Rafferty are revisiting Suits once again!

The actors, who costarred on the USA Network show, announced on Tuesday they’re teaming up for a new rewatch podcast on SiriusXM.

The pair will break down the series episode-by-episode with behind-the-scenes stories, while also welcoming guest stars, including friends, fans and those who were instrumental to Suits’ on and off-camera.

“On the heels of the record-breaking Suits resurgence, it feels like the perfect time to rewatch the show that changed our lives,” Adams, 42, and Rafferty, 51, who played Mike Ross and Donna Paulsen respectively, said in a joint statement.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with the incredible team at SiriusXM and look forward to connecting with our friends from the cast and crew, as well as the Suits fans who made it all possible," they added.

Adam Sachs, Senior Vice President of Podcast Content at SiriusXM, said in a statement of his own: “As we continue SiriusXM’s mission to bring listeners closer to the stars they love, we are excited to team up with Patrick and Sarah to launch this new podcast dedicated to diving deep on a TV show with a passionate, record-setting audience. Through their work on the series, the beloved co-stars have developed an off-camera friendship that we know will be a treat for ‘Suits’ fans, new and old. We can’t wait for you to listen.”

Troian Bellisario, who guest-starred on Suits as Claire Bowden and married Adams in December 2016, celebrated the news on Instagram Tuesday, noting that the upcoming podcast was already her “new favorite.”

“New favorite #podcast ALERT!” the actress wrote in the caption alongside a screengrab of the podcast announcement, as covered by Deadline.

Suits ran for eight seasons on USA Network from 2011 to 2019, with a cast that included Adams, Rafferty, Gabriel Macht, Meghan Markle, Rick Hoffman and Gina Torres.

The series became a runaway hit for Netflix after it released the show in June 2023 and became one of Netflix's most-streamed shows of 2023. In July of that year,Nielsenreported that the drama set a new record as the most-viewed acquired streaming title nearly -

four years after its series finale after racking up3 billion viewing minuteswithin its first week on Netflix.

Its popularity arguably paved the way for an upcoming spinoff series entitled Suits L.A on NBC.

Speaking about the resurgence to PEOPLE in January, Adams said the "second swell" had been "really, really strange" to witness.

"I mean, when you say goodbye to a show and you walk away and it ends and you had your moment, you think that's it," he explained. "It's going to be over and nothing else is going to happen. And you get to just go to the history book."

"It happened. And then it was one week and then it was two weeks and five weeks, and it kept going. And I think we had a twelve-week run at number one," he recalled. "It's just crazy. So we feel very grateful. And I think there's something about the show that clearly continues to speak to people."

Markle, who departed the show after season 7 following her engagement toPrince Harry,also shared her delight at the show’s renaissancein November. When asked byVarietywhat she thought was behind the “renewed love” for the show, the Duchess of Sussex said, “I have no idea. It was great to work on, such a great cast and crew. We had a really fun time. I was on it for seven seasons, so quite a bit.”

“But it’s hard to find a show you can binge-watch that many episodes of these days, so that could have something to do with it,” she added. “But good shows are everlasting.”

Suits joins shows like Young Sheldon and Grey's Anatomy, which found new viewers through Netflix in 2023. The legal drama is also the latest in a wave of nostalgia-fueled, celebrity-hosted podcasts that include 90210MG, Drama Queens, Office Ladies and Beyond the OC.
