USA Network announced today that Suits’ Patrick J. Adams is set to return as a guest star in the show’s ninth and final season, airing this summer.
Adams will reprise his role as Mike Ross mid-season, to get involved in a case that will put him toe to toe with Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Samantha Wheeler (Katherine Heigl). The last time we saw Mike, he and his sweetheart Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) married and moved out to Seattle.
The final season of Suits centers on an evolved firm, Zane Specter Litt Wheeler Williams, which is facing uncertainty and change yet again after Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce) took the fall with the Bar Association to save Harvey. After his sacrifice, Samantha is left reeling from the loss of her mentor, and while trying to console her, Harvey realizes that he doesn’t want to lose the most important person to him: Donna (Sarah Rafferty).
Season 9 will follow the lawyer and COO as they balance their relationship with work, as they fight to salvage the firm’s tarnished reputation alongside their partners, Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman), Alex Williams (Dulé Hill), Katrina Bennett (Amanda Schull), and Samantha. As the season progresses, our core characters’ personal lives will be explored more deeply than ever before, setting up the series conclusion, in which everyone will finally be forced to decide exactly who they are and what kind of lawyers they want to be.
