When is the next episode of Suits season 8 released?
Season eight of popular legal drama Suits was confirmed by the USA Network earlier this year.
In a statement the broadcaster said: “After seven seasons, Suits remains one of USA Network’s most beloved and popular series.
“While we’re excited for Season eight, everyone at USA will deeply miss Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle, and are grateful for the talent and commitment they brought to Suits season after season.
“We wish each of them nothing but the very best.”
Suits season seven premiered on July 12, 2017 and aired the first half of the run before taking a midseason break.
Season seven has only just returned and will be airing the remaining episodes, which will be hitting Netflix 12 hours after US broadcast.
All previous runs of Suits have debuted in either June or July, so judging by this it look likely that season eight will be dropping in summer 2018.
Much like season seven, episodes will be available to watch in the UK on Netflix the following day.
How many episodes are in Suits season 8?
There are going to be 16 episodes in the new series – just like all the previous cycles.
Episodes will be aired on a weekly basis and will be transmitted in the US first.
They will then be available on Netflix for British viewers to catch up with.
Who will be in Suits season 8?
The long-running drama will be entering its eighth year with a big cast shakeup in the wake of Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams’ departures from the programme.
Katherine Heigl of Grey’s Anatomy and 27 Dresses fame is going to be taking on the role of fearsome attorney Samantha Wheeler in the new drama.
The actress recently shared a photo from the set of Suits in which her characters was about to get into a boxing ring for a punch up, hinting at what fans could expect from her character.
She cheekily captioned the snap: “Day 2 on the set of @suits_usa getting my hands wrapped for a kickboxing scene. My character #SamanthaWheeler is no shrinking violet! She’ll kick your a#* in the ring and in the courtroom! Love playing a girl with gumption! #AnythingYouCanDoICanDoBetter #GirlsWithGumption.”
Also, playing a larger role in season eight will be Dulé Hill as attorney Alex Williams and also longtime friend of Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht).
Amanda Schull is also getting promoted to a series regular after appearing in the show as Katrina Bennett during the course of the drama.
Veteran cast members Gabriel Macht will be back as Harvey Specter, Rick Hoffman is Louis Litt and Sarah Rafferty is Donna Paulsen.
Suits season 8 will air on Netflix later this year
