Harvey Specter is back, baby! The Suits Season 8 premiere is tonight and it’s the first episode without Mike and Rachel. Here’s what to expect and how you can watch it live.

Suits Season 8 premiere is possibly one of the most highly anticipated ones of the whole show. It’s the first episode without Mike and Rachel, after Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle opted to leave. Now we’ll see Harvey and Donna deal with all the changes in the firm without their best friends. As Sarah Rafferty says in the promo for the season, the two characters will always be there to help influence choices, but this is a whole new show.

This is also the first episode with Robert Zane as a named partner. He saved the firm at the end of the last season and now needs to put his name somewhere on the wall. Right now, we know that Litt will always be last, but is he the first name or second? And just how will he change the shape of the firm considering he’s the one that’s saved it?

Meanwhile, Suits Season 8 premiere is the first episode with Katherine Heigl, who comes in as Samantha Wheeler. It’s already clear what to expect from her. She’s sassy, confident, and willing to play the guys at their own game. We don’t know too much about her yet, but we’re set to find out.

One thing this season will bring is a fresh start. Gabriel Macht ends the promo video describing the season in three words and chooses “a new beginning.” This is the season that new fans can join in the fun without feeling like they’re missing something, which isn’t something that happens on many shows in the eight season. Shows that have done that have only lasted a season or two. Will Suits succeed in ways that others couldn’t?
