USA Network has released the Season 8.5 extended teaser of their drama, Suits, starring Gabriel Macht and Katherine Heigl, before the upcoming premiere date. Now that Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) has left the firm, is lawyer Harvey Specter (Macht) ready to get back and take on new court cases?
During the seventh season finale, Mike (Adams) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) had their long overdue wedding before leaving the firm. Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce) saved the day and became the firm’s new partner, alongside Specter and Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman). Elsewhere, Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) has set foot in Chicago to reunite with her long-lost family, while taking on a crooked politician and a shady real estate developer.
Here are 5 reasons why we can’t wait to see Suits Season 8.5:
5) Father of the Year!
During the midseason finale, Robert Zane (Pierce) and Harvey Specter (Macht) came very close to tearing the firm apart. Louis Litt (Hoffman) had to step in and take over as Managing Editor. Will Litt be able to handle the responsibilities of Managing Editor and fatherhood?
During the finale, Alex (Hill) and Samantha (Heigl) also became named partners. Heigl mentioned to Entertainment Weekly about what’s to come, “I’m curious to see what that means for her — how she’s going to behave, how is she going to respond, what kind of power does that give her with Harvey, especially? I’m really interested to see what that means for her relationship with Harvey.”
Now that Markle and Adams have left, Amanda Schull really rose to the occasion to pick up the slack has been doing a phenomenal job. Katrina Bennet (Schull) has everything in her professional career, but her love life is a different story. Will Katrina succumb to temptation and seduce a married man?
2) What About Second City?
Gina Torres showed up in the seven season as Jessica Pearson to promote her show, Suits: Second City. I guess there won’t be any crossover between Suits and its spinoff as of right now, but I do hope we get to hear more about what’s going on with Jessica in Chicago.
I’m just going to leave this line here. From the extended trailer, Litt says, “You’re a wild stallion and I’m not going to ride you hard.”
Suits continues Season 8 on USA Network January 23, 2019.
