Suits renewed for Season 8 without Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle
As expected, Adams and Markle’s characters will exit after the end of Season 7 with a two-hour wedding-themed season finale scheduled for April 25. To help fill their void, Dule Hill will be promoted to series regular in Season 8. Creator Aaron Korsh says of moving forward without Suits’ main stars: “Season eight will have everything from shifting alliances and internal power plays, to secrets, betrayals and fiery relationships. Keep an eye out for an adversarial new character that will give Harvey a run for his money." ALSO: Patrick J. Adams says he was tired of being away from home, and first started thinking about leaving in early Season 6.

Suits creator says he “took a gamble” in deciding to write Meghan Markle off the show one year ago
"I knew from a year ago that this relationship was burgeoning,” Aaron Korsh said on British radio. “And I had a decision to make because I didn't want to intrude and ask her, 'hey what's going on and what are you going to do?.” He adds: “What we decided to do (was to) say, 'look, I would rather have good things happen to Meghan in her life' - which would likely mean her leaving the show. So let's plan on that and it's much easier to undo that, if it came to it, than to just plan on her staying forever and then finding out she's going to go.”

How Meghan Markle ended up getting her big break on Suits
It was her chemistry with Patrick J. Adams that won her the role, says Jeff Wachtel, who served as co-president of USA when Markle was cast. "One of the things that we needed at the beginning with Suits was Patrick's character comes in as the hottest thing in town: he's brilliant, has a photographic memory and fakes his way into being a lawyer and then he comes up against this girl who turns out to be the love of his life," says Wachtel. "We needed somebody who had a real authority to shut him down and still be the coolest thing around. And they had it right away. It was a lot of fun."

Married with Children star recalls a young Meghan Markle growing up on the set
The Suits star’s dad, Thomas Markle, worked as a director and director of photography on the Fox sitcom. "Every day after school for 10 years, I was on the set of Married with Children, which is a really funny and perverse place for a little girl in a Catholic school uniform to grow up," Meghan Markle once told Esquire. "There were a lot of times my dad would say, 'Meg, why don't you go and help with the craft services room over there? This is just a little off-color for your 11-year-old eyes.’” Amanda Bearse, who played neighbor Marcy, on Monday remembered Meghan as a quiet, respectful kid on set. “He was so supportive and just really truly a lovely, lovely man,” Bearse said of her father. “I am not one bit surprised he grew such a lovely child.”

Much love.”
