EXCLUSIVE: Thirteen years after its launch on USA Network and almost a year after becoming the surprise hit of the summer, Suits stars Patrick J. Adams and Sarah Rafferty are ready to talk about the series - on a podcast.

The actors have signed up to host a new rewatch podcast series for SiriusXM.

Adams played Mike Ross, who hustled his way into working at prestigious law firm Pearson Hardman, and Raffterty played Donna Paulsen, the legal secretary and confidante of Gabriel Macht's Harvey Specter. They will break down each episode of the show, sharing exclusive, behind-the-scenes stories about the making of the series.

The pair will be joined by cast members and crew as well as friends and fans of the show, which had a nine-season run on the NBCUniversal cable station.

It comes after the legal drama broke streaming records when it was licensed by Netflix. That success led to revived interest in the show, saw the pair, alongside Macht and Gina Torres, present at the Golden Globes, and helped pave the way for a pilot order for Suits: L.A., a spinoff from creator Aaron Korsh.

The untitled show joins a number of rewatch podcasts as the availability of older shows on streaming has led to new interest in cast members sharing stories from the past. This includes Susie Essman and Jeff Garlin hosting a new Curb Your Enthusiasm podcast, alongside rewatch pods for shows such as Prison Break, Friday Night Lights, Grimm, The Hills, Veep and Supernatural.

SiriusXM is also behind rewatch podcasts including Office Ladies and Parks & Recollection.

The podcast will be produced by SiriusXM's Stitcher Studios with Kimmie Gregory, Cassi Jerkins and Kristin Shrader as producers. The show is co-created and co-hosted by Adams and Rafferty, who exec produce alongside Adam Sachs, Codi Fischer and Colin Anderson for SiriusXM.

"On the heels of the record breaking Suits resurgence, it feels like the perfect time to rewatch the show that changed our lives," said Adams and Rafferty. "We are thrilled to collaborate with the incredible team at SiriusXM and look forward to connecting with our friends from the cast and crew, as well as the Suits fans who made it all possible."

"As we continue SiriusXM's mission to bring listeners closer to the stars they love, we are excited to team up with Patrick and Sarah to launch this new podcast dedicated to diving deep on a TV show with a passionate, record-setting audience," said Adam Sachs, SVP of Podcast Content at SiriusXM. "Through their work on the series, the beloved co-stars have developed an off-camera friendship that we know will be a treat for Suits fans, new and old. We can't wait for you to listen."

Rafferty is repped by Charlton Blackburne Management, Greene Talent and Felker, Toczek, Suddleson & Abramson. Adams is repped by CAA, The Rosenzweig Group, and attorney Lev Ginsburg.
