The paper is concerned with the character theory of finite groups of Lie type. The irreducible characters of a group 𝐺 of Lie type are partitioned in Lusztig series. We provide a simple formula for an upper bound of the maximal size of a Lusztig series for classical groups with connected center; this is expressed for each group 𝐺 in terms of its Lie rank and defining characteristic. When 𝐺 is specified as $G⁢(q)$ and 𝑞 is large enough, we determine explicitly the maximum of the sizes of the Lusztig series of 𝐺.
