Is Zane Specter Litt the new name of the firm? The latest Suits season 8 promo seems to be raising that very question, while also responding indirectly to some critique from fans that the series was not implementing enough of the show’s longtime cast members.
This preview not only gives you a little dialogue from Harvey, Donna, and Louis, but it also features them at the very end, as well. These are the three cast members who have been here from the beginning and with that, it only makes sense to view the story primarily from their point of view. We are entering a world now in which Mike and Rachel are gone, and they have to figure out a way to move forward. For someone like Harvey, that is extremely difficult given that Mike was not just a fellow partner to him; he was also a best friend, and someone he cared about immensely outside of the job. Rachel, meanwhile, was both a valuable friend and ally to everyone. The entire firm is shaken with them gone.
What we’re perhaps the most pleased about here is getting to see some footage of Robert Zane, given that the USA series is going to have to juggle him a little bit with some of his other acting gigs. He is not a series regular, but we are grateful that the show still seems to be finding some good ways in which to include him. The preview also gives you a little more of promoted series regular Dule Hill (Alex Williams) alongside a little bit of newcomer Katherine Heigl as ruthless attorney Samantha Wheeler, who is intent on getting her name on the wall one way or another.
One thing we do still wonder here is this: Where is Amanda Schull? The 12 Monkeys actress is set to be a regular as Katrina Bennett, but she has not been seen in much of the footage as of yet.
Suits season 8 premieres on USA come July 18. Be sure to let us know your take on the promo below, and you can also like CarterMatt on Facebook for some additional insight when it comes to the USA series. (Photo: USA, video via SpoilerTV.)
