Subscribe To Why Suits' Patrick J. Adams Chose To Return As Mike In Final Season Updates
USA's legal drama Suits is preparing to bid adieu after an epic nine seasons of winning over cable audiences. Not too long ago, it was announced that Patrick J. Adams would reprise his role as original character Mike Ross, and Adams has revealed why he decided to return for Suits' final season.
As fans remember, Patrick J. Adams exited Suits following Season 7 along with eminent (now former) co-star Meghan Markle. On-screen, Adams’ Mike and Markle’s Rachel got married and walked into the virtual sunset together in that season's finale. Now, Adams is returning for Suits’ final season, and explained it to ET like this:
Thank you, nostalgia! Patrick J. Adams’ reasoning for returning is pretty sweet, in my opinion. Who can blame him for wanting to come back and hang out with his former TV family for Suits’ final bow? He was on the show since the beginning, and he wanted to be there for the end.
There was another poignant aspect to Patrick J. Adams’ decision to return to Suits. He wanted to be there for the final cut. Adams said:
Patrick J. Adams got to be there for all of the firsts, so he wanted to be back for some of Suits' final moments, as well. Such as his final case against a trusted friend.
What can fans expect from the return trip of Adams’ Mike? He will be squaring off with Gabriel Macht’s Harvey and Katherine Heigl’s Samantha in a substantial legal case. The episode is titled “If the Shoe Fits,” and it will be an intense one if the picture above is any indication. In the photo, you can see Mike pointing his finger at Harvey as Donna looks on. Please note Mike’s wedding ring! Rachel’s presence is felt!
