Suits is nearing the end of its seventh season, so what’s next? Recently, creator Aaron Korsh spoke with Variety about the future of the USA Network TV show.
As reported earlier, stars Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams will be leaving after season seven. The cast also includes Gabriel Macht, Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty, Amanda Schull, and Dulé Hill.
Speaking to Variety, Korsh revealed season eight of Suits will integrate new characters, like Katherine Heigl’s Samantha Wheeler:
We’re going to delve into all of those characters’ lives more and more; they’re not just coming in off the street, so to speak. We’ve always had the formula of bringing people back. And then what we also do from time to time is bring in new, juicy, hopefully awesome characters like what we’re doing with Katherine Heigl. So that’s what we’re going to keep doing and to me that’s what makes continuation possible. It’s not like we’re bringing in a whole new cast — we’re integrating and involving people you spend time with from week to week.”
And what about the season seven finale? Will Mike (Adams) and Rachel (Markle) get married?
There is no doubt that we are going to honor the relationship of Mike and Rachel before we send them off. There was a promo to this effect, that went back to all of their moments — the key moments of their relationship that have built to where we ultimately conclude. We absolutely had all those moments in mind when we decided how we’re going to send them off and what we’re going to do.”
Suits returns to USA Network on March 28th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
