When it comes to a Mike Ross return we’re really just reading into things based on what show executive producer Aaron Korsh wants for the characters for the show’s final season. Speaking in a new interview with Deadline, he makes it clear that there wasn’t a tangible reason to bring him back in season 8 — but season 9 may have more of a reason:
When Patrick left, we talked about the notion of him coming back. It had to be right story-wise, and he had to be in a place where he wants to do it, depending on what’s going on with him. In the back six, it didn’t feel right for that. The final 10, you can’t contemplate it without contemplating bringing Mike back. We’re contemplating it and we’ll see where we land, and how Patrick feels.
Korsh also makes it clear there’s been a plan to run Suits for nine seasons for some time now, even before the departures of Adams and Meghan Markle. There are some things in life you just can’t anticipate, with one of the biggest ones being one of your stars getting married to a Prince in the United Kingdom. Yet, the series was able to pivot and do some great things with Katherine Heigl and with larger roles for Dule Hill.
In the aforementioned interview, Korsh denies knowledge of any hefty donation being made as a means of bringing Markle back — that was something that was the subject of tabloid rumors for a while. Whether or not she wants to appear again is solely up to her, but given the fact that she’s expecting a baby right now and will be due this spring, it’s hard to really fathom a way for this to work schedule-wise — especially with the final ten episodes of Suits coming later this year. Getting Patrick back for at least one more appearance as Mike Ross feels like so much more of a possibility.
Before getting too far ahead though, remember that there are still many episodes of Suits season 8 to look forward to — we’re not anywhere close to the end of the line just yet! There is still a lot of good stuff still to look forward to.
