Following the heartbreaking news that Patrick J. Adams has joined Meghan Markle in her decision to leave Suits, the actor has teased what's in store for their show characters, Rachel Zane and Mike Ross.

Yesterday, USA Network announced the show had been renewed for an eighth series and that Adams would be leaving the production at the end of season seven. As a result, the Canadian actor shed some light as to how he and Markle might be written out of the show.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Adams said: 'A lot of times when actors leave shows, a gun gets pulled out in a courtroom or something.

'Without spoiling too much, yes, I think Mike and Rachel are two characters that there has never been any question that they're in love and that they're meant for each other.'

So, does this mean the pair will leave the show alive and well? Only time will tell.

However, the star - who has played Mike Ross for more than 100 episodes of the Aaron Korsh-created series - did reveal that episode 16, the finale of season seven, is the one to look out for.

He also opened up on his final scenes with Markle, who is due to marry Prince Harry on 19 May.

Discussing their conversation about leaving Suits, he said: 'With Meghan, a lot went unsaid. Meghan has this whole crazy part of her life that's just beginning now. In some ways, Meghan and I were the closest because we were the youngest people in the cast and both came in with the least experience.

Adding that they 'grew up together' during the show, he continued: 'It went unspoken and we just enjoyed the hell out of the last few episodes that we got to shoot.

'We both knew that we wouldn't be coming back. It made every one of our scenes that much more special. We had a great time. We could laugh through it. Even the things that might have frustrated us about the show, they became things that we could have a good laugh about and compare notes on just how crazy this thing had become.'

Explaining his decision to leave the show, Adams revealed: 'I had this voice in my head that said that we've told [Ross'] story and if he hangs out longer, Mike is just going to be another lawyer on television. That didn't feel right for him. It didn't feel right for where I was at in my life, either.'

In a post to Instagram last night, Adams shared a statement with his fans that revealed he was leaving the hit series.

A section of the post read: 'The last seven years have been life changing. And playing a character that so many people all over the world have connected with has been one of the great honours of my life.

'Together we great this misdirected brilliant pothead into a confident and capable man seen all of his wildest dreams come true. Thank you for the wild ride.'

Now that Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle are leaving Suits, we just don't think life will be the same ever again.
