USA Network has handed a season 8 renewal to their original drama Suits.

The seventh season is only half way through and will be the final season for stars Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle. The second half of the season will air premiere on March 28.

Series creator Aaron Korsh will return for Season 8 and had this to say about the departure of the two stars:

“I would like to thank Patrick and Meghan for their extraordinary contributions over the last seven years. Not only have they been outstanding in their roles as Mike and Rachel, they are also superb human beings who will always be beloved members of the ‘Suits’ family, and we wish them well in their days to come.

Speaking of days to come, I am incredibly excited to welcome back our phenomenal crew and cast – Gabriel, Sarah, Rick and Dulé – who will continue the roller coaster ride with all of our amazing fans. Season 8 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.”
