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 July.
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 centres 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 realises that he doesn’t want to lose the most important person to him: Donna (Sarah Rafferty).
