We reported it a few months ago, but it has now been confirmed by Suits star Patrick J Adams himself — he is also leaving the show. That means major changes are on the way, and the USA Network has yet to give us details of what’s to come. The good part is – Rachel and Mike get to leave together, which may make viewers happy? His co-star Meghan Markle is set to marry Prince Harry in a few months. The show is officially returning for Season 8, and in a new interview Patrick says he was considering leaving a couple seasons ago, but stayed on to see what they had in store for the fate of the character. When asked whether he would ever return as Mike if they needed him for an episode or two he said ‘Never say never.’ Mike says he plans to focus on his marriage and does plan to find a new role in TV.
According to our sources, Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl will be joining Suits in Season 8 as a series regular. Heigl will play Samantha Wheeler, a new partner at Pearson Specter Litt and is sure to shake up the dynamic at the firm.
