Emmy Award-winning and two-time Golden Globe-nominated actress Katherine Heigl is returning to our television screens!

The former Grey's Anatomy star has been cast in the legal drama, Suits as a series regular for its eighth season. She will play Samantha Wheeler, a talented new partner at Pearson Specter Litt who challenges the status quo and will either become the firm's greatest ally or most powerful enemy, reports Hollywood Reporter.

Set to premiere later this year, Heigl will star opposite Gabriel Macht (Harvey Specter), Sarah Rafferty (Donna Paulsen), Rick Hoffman (Louis Litt) and new series regular Dulé Hill (Alex Williams).

“Joining Suits was the perfect organic way to not only collaborate with an EP I admire deeply, but to also become part of a show and cast that I am an immense fan of,” shared Heigl. “I have watched Suits from the very beginning and feel incredibly lucky to be the newest member of the Pearson Specter Litt family.”

Will she be able to fill the void left behind by Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle? We'll find out soon enough but for now, we're just excited to see Heigl suit up (sorry, not sorry!).
