Josh McDermitt Joins Steven Amell in ‘Suits: LA’ Spinoff

NBC’s Suits spinoff, Suits: LA, is gearing up with the addition of The Walking Dead actor Josh McDermitt. Set to star alongside Steven Amell, McDermitt takes on the role of Stuart Lane, co-founder of the law firm Black Lane Law, where Amell’s character, Ted Black, navigates the complexities of criminal and entertainment law in Los Angeles.

Described as energetic, powerful, and self-absorbed, McDermitt’s character, Stuart Lane, adds an intriguing dynamic to the stellar ensemble. The official logline for the series sets the stage for a gripping narrative, stating, “Ted is surrounded by a stellar group of characters who test their loyalties to both Ted and each other while they can’t help but mix their personal and professional lives. All of this is going on while events from years ago slowly unravel that led Ted to leave behind everything and everyone he loved.”

The spinoff, titled Suits: LA, is the brainchild of original series creator Aaron Korsh. Building on the legacy of Suits, which aired for nine seasons from 2011 to 2019, the spinoff taps into the same universe.
