Suits Season 3 to premiere online before airing on Dave


Episode 1 available from 23 January at 10pm via Dave on Demand, Dave iOS app and YouView

UKTV has announced that it will premiere the first episode of its brand new series of Suits online, one week before the new series starts airing on popular entertainment channel Dave.

Fans of the show will be able to access the premiere episode of the legal comedy drama from 10pm on 23rd January through Dave on Demand, Dave's iOS app or through Dave's YouView service.

Steve North, General Manager for Dave, commented: 'This is a real treat for Suits fans who have been eagerly awaiting the start of the new series. Now the'll be able to catch up with what's been happening to their favourite characters a whole week earlier than the premiere of the first episode on Dave, whetting their appetite for what is set to be a spectacular third season of the show'

Season three starts airing on Dave from 30 January at 9pm and features cast favourites alongside a host of new names that inject a distinct air of Britishness into the new series, including Mad Dogs star Max Beesley and Game of Thrones favourite Michelle Fairley.

As part of the British merger, and newly named Pearson Darby, Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and his chums have a war on their hands and it seems none of them were expecting quite such a big one. Game of Thrones? Conleth Hill returns as Edward Darby; eager to make an impression on his new partners and help his dear friend Ava Hessington (played by Michelle Fairley), Darby brings in his right hand man Stephen Huntley (played by Max Beesley) who soon ruffles feathers, especially Harvey's

The new series also offers a sneak peek into the personal lives of the much loved characters, picking up where we left off with Mike (Patrick J Adams) and Rachel's (Meghan Markle) relationship. Jessica (Gina Torres) is also forced to take drastic action when tensions continue to rise between her and Harvey, while Louis (Rick Hoffman) is having problems of his own with his British counterpart Nigel (played by Breaking Bad's Adam Godley).
