NEW YORK, Aug. 12 (UPI) -- USA Network says it has ordered 16 one-hour episodes for a second season of "Suits," starring Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Rick Hoffman and Gina Torres.

Co-starring Sarah Rafferty and Meghan Marklem, the legal drama shoots in Toronto.

Its Season 2 pickup was announced Thursday by Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel, co-presidents of USA Network.

The show premiered June 23 and will conclude its 12-episode freshman run Sept. 8.

"'Suits' exceeded our expectations on every level with its sharp writing, engaging ensemble cast and incredible production values," Wachtel and McCumber said in a statement. "Quickly embraced by our viewers, critics and the industry as a series that pushes the envelope of the USA brand, we needed no further evidence to green-light a second season."
