Season 8 Of 'Suits' Just Dropped On Netflix
Suits fans, here's some great news for you. Meghan Markle might have left the show to marry Prince Harry and become a full time royal/humanitarian/world traveller. But, the show must go on, and the popular USA Network show returns without Markle's character Rachel Zane, or her on-screen love interest Mike Ross - played by Patrick J. Adams.
The US drama might be a little different to what we're used to though, following the departure of Mike and Rachel, but it can't be helped.
You'd have to imagine that Meghan's schedule is going to be pretty busy now, what with all of the travelling, shaking hands, attending official events so that she can look interested in people she's never met.
Patrick J. Adams had a slightly more convoluted reason for leaving. Somewhere between his character and his family, he seems to have just had enough. He told The Hollywood Reporter: "After seven seasons - really, eight years of being away from home and away from my now-wife and there was that pressure.
"I started thinking about leaving at the end of the first half of season six, after Mike was released from prison. From a story point of view, I was a little unsure of what was left for him to do.
"Mike had made the pledge during his trial that if he were allowed to continue to practice the law, he would dedicate his time and energy to under-represented people and not big, corporate interests.
"I wasn't sure how we were going to work that version of the character into the fabric of the show."
In the world of the show, Mike and Rachel conveniently left to move to a different company in Seattle. Interestingly, the series' creator Aaron Korsch has not ruled out the prospect of Mike returning as a non-regular character.
So far, only the first episode of the new season has hit the online streaming giant, and it's looking like we'll see one brand new episode hit every Thursday.
That means that you'l have to wait for a new episode to be released every week if you want to keep up.
If you're struggling, just remember, there was a time when you have to wait a whole week for EVERY show that you wanted to watch. Back in the day, there was no Netflix and you'd have to watch what was actually being broadcast on the TV at that exact time. It doesn't bear thinking about.
Anyway, that aside, the first episode is now available to catch on Netflix. Get stuck in.
