Legal drama Suits has been knocked off the top of the streaming charts after a recent period of domination.

Despite coming to an end over four years ago, the show has been enjoying a new lease of life this year, racking-up billions of views over the past few months after being added to Netflix.

Topping the Nielsen charts, it has become the most popular acquired show of all time.

However, new data for the final week of October has revealed that Suits has failed to pass one billion minutes viewed for the first time since June.

Instead, it has been pipped to second place by Jennifer Lawrence's recent comedy movie No Hard Feelings, according to Deadline, which racked-up 1.1 billion minutes.

Nielsen has also revealed that Suits is second to The Office US in terms of weeks of viewing over 1 billion minutes, the comedy series topping the charts with 30 weeks to Suits' 18 weeks.

Responding to the show's resurgence, Korsh recently wrote on X (formerly Twitter): "I always thought we were underestimated, but it turns out, even I underestimated #Suits. It's good to be the King."

Former star Meghan Markle (Rachel Zane) has also addressed the success, calling the resurgence "wild".

Meanwhile, it was recently confirmed that Korsh and some of the show's stars including Sarah Rafferty (Donna Paulsen), Patrick J Adams (Mike Ross) and Dulé Hill (Alex Williams) will be reuniting for a special five-year anniversary panel at the ATX TV Festival next year.

It was also recently reported that a new spin-off is being developed by creator Aaron Korsh, which is expected to be "fast-tracked with a serious commitment" by NBCUniversal.

Suits is available to stream on Netflix.
