Katherine Heigl is coming to Suits. Deadline reports the Doubt star has joined season eight of the USA Network TV show.
Currently in its seventh season, the legal drama centers on ace attorney Harvey Spector (Gabriel Macht) and his college dropout protegé Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams). The cast also includes Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty, and Meghan Markle, and Dulé Hill.
As reported earlier, season seven will be the last for leads Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle. But fans don’t have to worry about the show losing steam just yet. It looks like Suits is bringing Katherine Hegil on as a possible match for Harvey Specter (Macht).
In season eight, Heigl will play “Samantha Wheeler, a talented new partner at Pearson Specter Litt who challenges the status quo and will either become the firm’s greatest ally … or most powerful enemy.”
