While Meghan Markle is off to “queener” pastures, Dulé Hill has been upped to a series regular on Suits.
The show’s Season 8 was made official today by USA Network, along with the announcement of Hill’s promotion.
He began recurring in Season 7 as Alex Williams, a new senior partner at Pearson Spencer Litt.
The back half of Suits’ Season 7 will premiere on Wednesday, March 28 at 9/8c, culminating in a 2-hour season finale on Wednesday, April 25 – an arc in which the show says goodbye to characters Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) and Rachel Zane (Markle).
A Suits spinoff, focusing on Gina Torres’ Jessica Pearson is also in the works at USA Network.
