Both Adams and Markle have been with the series since it premiered in 2011.

The departure of Adams and Markle would amount to an overhaul of the series as the characters - legal prodigy Mike Ross and savvy paralegal Rachel Zane - have been romantically involved and central to recent storylines.

Adams reportedly began thinking about leaving the show over the summer. "Patrick wants to pursue other things and he's realized his time at Suits has come to an end". Markle has gained greater fame recently because of her relationship with Prince Harry, which blew up on the British tabloids' radar a year ago.

As Us reported last month, many assumed Markle would not be returning for season 8. This Suits news could not only act as confirmation that she's off the show, but that she is in the final stages of preparation for life as a royal. I would never have guessed that she would want to leave early but she did, and it ended up working out. Adams had "made up his mind" about leaving.

While he might leave as a regular, THR reports that Adams could return in a limited capacity, either as a guest or recurring star, or director. An Us Weekly reports from September quotes a source who was frank in their admission that many people who worked on the show already suspected she was as good as gone. According to sources, there is a wedding that will take place - Rachel and Mike's obviously - in the second half of the season 7.

The show, which is now in the middle of Season 7, has not yet been picked up for an eighth season, but one is "likely", according to Deadline.

Aaron Korsh, the creator of the show, confirmed her character would be tying the knot this season.

Talks are taking place regarding a Season 8 renewal, but no agreement has been reached. But we can't imagine the show without Harvey and Mike!
