Katherine Heigl Is Joining Suits Season 8!

By Isabella Lovric

It was sad news finding out that Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams were both leaving Suits at the end of season 7. However, USA Network announced on Wednesday that Katherine Heigl will be joining Suits Season 8 as a series regular. 

A great addition to the series if we say so myself!

The former Grey's Anatomy actress will play Samantha Wheeler, a talented new partner at the shows law firm joining current regulars Gabriel Macht, Sarah Rafferty, Rick Hoffman, and a new series regular Dulé Hill.

“Joining Suits was the perfect organic way to not only collaborate with an EP I admire deeply but to also become part of a show and cast that I am an immense fan of,” Heigl said in a statement.

“I have watched Suits from the very beginning and feel incredibly lucky to be the newest member of the Pearson Specter Litt family.”

The show’s producer, Aaron-Korsh welcomed Heigl to the series whilst teasing her new role within: “On behalf of the entire Suits team, I am extraordinarily excited to welcome Katherine Heigl into our family – I have always been a big fan of her work and was delighted to discover she was an avid Suits fan herself.

“I cannot wait to have her come play with our entire cast and crew. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Harvey, Louis, Donna and Alex as the mysterious Samantha Wheeler is a direct threat to their status quo.

"One thing is for sure – Samantha's wit, charm, loyalty, strength and vulnerability will all be put to the test as she muscles her way into the firm currently known as Pearson Specter Litt.”

Season 8 production will begin this April in Toronto, Canada. We can’t wait!
