The co-presidents of the USA network have hinted that new series Suits and Necessary Roughness are close to being renewed.

Suits stars Gabriel Macht as a successful lawyer who hires a brilliant college drop-out (Patrick J Adams), while Necessary Roughness stars Callie Thorne as celebrity therapist Dr. Dani Santino.

"The outlook is sunny [for a season two pick-up]," Chris McCumber told Entertainment Weekly at the Television Critics Association press tour.

Co-president Jeff Wachtel added: "The future is so bright, we feel like wearing shades."

The most recent episode of Necessary Roughness pulled in 4.2m viewers, while the latest instalment of Suits attracted 4.4m.

"We're just thrilled," said Wachtel. "[Both shows have] exceeded all expectations at this point."

Necessary Roughness continues on Wednesdays at 10/9c, while Suits airs the following night, also at 10/9c.
