SPOILER ALERT: This story contains details of tonight’s Suits Season 8 premiere.

Suits 2.0 launched tonight with the season premiere of USA Network series’ eighth season, the first without original co-stars Patrick J Adams and Meghan Markle. The new opening sequence reflected the new setup — an ensemble legal drama led by Gabriel Macht and a regular cast featuring three original members, Macht, Rick Hoffman and Sarah Rafferty, and three new ones, Katherine Heigl and newly promoted Dule Hill and Amanda Schull.

Season - Battle - Lines - Zane - Specter

The Season 8 premiere established the battle lines at the newly merged Zane Specter Litt, with Harvey Specter (Macht) and Heigl’s Samantha Wheeler going at each other as part of a wager between Harvey and Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce) over who will be managing partner. And while the managing partner question was answered by the end of the premiere, with Harvey handing the reins to Robert, the episode put Alex and Katrina on a collision course as each had been promised — by Harvey and Robert, respectively — that they would become name partner next.

In an interview with Deadline, Suits creator Aaron Korsh talks about the revamp and the impact of Samantha’s arrival, Wendell Pierce’s presence on the show, the conflicts that will be brewing in Season 8, possible new romance (and a baby?), which characters’ family members will be making an appearance and will Adams’ Mike, Gina Torres’ Jessica, who is headlining her own spinoff series, or Abigail Spencer’s Scottie come back for a visit? Korsh also discusses attending the Royal Wedding between Markle and Prince Harry, the large Suits contingent there and the one guest he was stoked to meet there. Additionally, eight seasons in, Korsh also talks about when the legal series may end.
