It looks like it's time for us to stop blissfully ignoring the reality that Meghan Markle won't be coming back to Suits. While it breaks every die-hard fans heart to see not only Meghan go but also Patrick J. Adams and Gina Torres, it's time to look at which new characters will be filling their shoes for the upcoming seasons.
The first big addition to the cast is a new character named Samantha Wheeler. She's slated to fill Mike's spot and work alongside Harvey. Though while the characters will be working together, show writers have warned fans that their relationship will not be buddy-buddy, rather Samantha Wheeler is a "direct threat to the series' status quo."
So who will be playing Wheeler? It turns out the role will be taken up by a TV drama veteran, Katherine Heigl. You may remember her from 27 Dresses, but most likely Grey's Anatomy. It turns out she was a big fan of Suits in past years, so it will be interesting to see what she brings to the table plot-wise.
While it's definitely exciting news to hear there is a fresh face hitting the franchise, we won't actually get to see Heigl in action until Summer 2018. Until then, we've still got season 7, which is currently airing up until April and still has Meghan, Patrick and Gina as our favourite characters!
