“After seven seasons, Suits remains one of USA Network’s most beloved and popular series. While we’re excited for Season 8, everyone at USA will deeply miss Patrick and Meghan, and are grateful for the talent and commitment they brought to Suits season after season. We wish each of them nothing but the very best,” Chris McCumber, president of entertainment networks at NBCUniversal said in a statement.

The show’s storylines will likely be overhauled due to their departure. Series creator Aaron Korsh is set to return for the eighth season as well, alongside stars Gabriel Macht, Sarah Rafferty and Rick Hoffman. New series regular Dulé Hill is also set to join the cast.

“It’s hard for me to imagine what words, in what order would sufficiently express my love and gratitude to all of the people who have made the last seven years possible,” said Patrick.

“It’s hard for me to imagine what words, in what order would sufficiently express my love and gratitude to all of the people who have made the last seven years possible. From my unbelievably talented cast mates to our relentlessly committed crew, to the brilliant minds at USA, UCP and Hypnotic, to the legions of fans all over the world, every one of them dedicating so much of their time, energy and talent to make Suits what it is today – one of the most beloved and successful shows on television. So I will choose the simplest words I have. Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. It has been an honor working with and for each and everyone one of you. Mike Ross has taught me a lot about commitment, hard work and the power of believing in yourself and I feel blessed that now we both get to walk out into the lives that we never dreamed we would actually be lucky enough to live. I’m excited to now step across the screen and become solely a fan of a show that I know has much more in store in the years to come. I wish everyone involved the best and am excited to see what kind of trouble they’ll get themselves in and out of from here on out.”

    He was very gracious considering he was a producer as well; did Markle’s royal engagement leave his character in the cold? I mean Suits was about him in a way.

    i’ve watched since day 1 and she was never really good, no loss. i can’t believe patrick is leaving though, he is 1/2 of suits in my mind. every storyline was him and harvey, basically.

    It’s strange. If the show wanted to keep him, they could have since he was a main character and she was just in a supporting role. His character’s existence wasn’t contingent upon her; more like the other way around. All the writers had to do was say that the characters broke up & she moved out of town.
