(Gabriel Macht & Patrick J. Adams as Harvey & Mike)

Worldwide, fans of TV's dashing men in Suits have been waiting eagerly for their next appointment with the hotshot lawyers - Harvey, Mike and their plotting and scheming colleagues. Season 5 reaches South African shores via M-Net's superfast Express from the US service.

While the prime-time episode will be screened in its usual M-Net timeslot on July 2 at 19h30, there will also be a special treat for DStv Compact viewers who don't have access to M-Net's flagship channel, M-Net 101. At exactly the same time on July 2, M-Net City, channel 115 on DStv Compact, will screen the first episode of Suits as well.

This season, law firm Pearson Spector Litt has to recover from the hard-fought victory that has left the firm shaken. Although she avoided jail time, Donna (Sarah Rafferty) has left Harvey (Gabriel Macht), after more than a decade of working together. She is now working for his long-time rival Louis (Rick Hoffman). And while Jessica (Gina Torres) readjusts to being single, Mike (Patrick J. Adams) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) are giddy after his marriage proposal.

To accommodate the first episode of Suits Season 5 on M-Net City, the scheduled episodes of A-Z Season 1 will start at 20h30 on July 2 (not at 19h30 as originally scheduled), Criminal Minds Season 10 at 21h00 (not at 20h00) and The Fixer Season 4 will start at 22h00 (not at 21h00).

Suits Season 5 will also be available on the following DStv Catch Up platforms: DStv Now on PC, laptops, tablets and smartphones, PVRs and Exploras. And you can download the free M-Net app to set reminders for all your favourite shows.
