Suits Has Been Renewed For Its Final Season

Suits has been renewed for its ninth series and makers of the show have confirmed that it will be the last season.

According to TV Line, production on the 10-episode farewell season will begin later on this year.

The legal drama is currently on its eighth series and has gone through a shake up following the departures of OGs Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle. Season seven saw them leave to work together after their on-screen wedding.

Of course, in reality, Meghan was actually leaving to become a member of The Royal Family when she married Prince Harry in the Summer of 2018.

Season 8 has seen the introduction of Katherine Heigl who joined as lawyer, Samantha Wheeler, while Amanda Schull (aka newly promoted senior partner Katrina Bennett) was upped to series regular.

In a statement, Suits creator, Aaron Korsh, said: "Though I know it isn't true, it seems like only yesterday USA Network took a chance on an unestablished writer's very first hour long script.

"These days that's a common thing, but 47 years ago when I first wrote the Untitled Korsh Project, nobody did it. Nobody except the people at USA and [Universal Cable Productions].

"And to the exceptional writers, cast and crew - thank you for your passion and devotion, without which, Suits would be nothing.

"And last but never least, to the fans who have stuck with the Suits family through thick and thin, through can-openers and flashbacks - thank you for always speaking your mind.

"Without you, I might start to think I'm getting the hang of this writing thing. And once that happens, nobody wins. I look forward to enraging and hopefully sometimes delighting you with the final episodes.

"Finally, to my wife Kate and my children Cooper and Lucy. Thank you for enduring countless late nights and times away, for me to get to live my dream. I love you. Love, Aaron."

Fans have taken to social media voicing their very strong opinions about the programme coming to an end and two names are constantly cropping up:

"If Harvey and Donna don't end up happily ever after I'm gonna flip shit," one said. Another added: "If @akorsh9 end season 9 without #darvey wedding I'm suing".

A third commented: "DOES THIS MEAN WE'LL FINALLY GET DARVEY??????"

Here's to hoping, guys, here's to hoping.
