Critic Reviews for Suits Season 8

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

Suits maintains its swagger while feeling a little chillier than it used to.

Jan 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Katherine Heigl is a real treat, and spews "kiss my a**!" within minutes in a fabulous cape...

Nov 13, 2018 | Full Review…

If you don't know who any of these people are, it doesn't matter. All you need to know is that everyone's trying to get up the mountain and kick everyone else's ass down it.

Jul 20, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

But when "Suits" returns in the Season 8 premiere, the notoriously loquacious lawyers haven't skipped a beat.

Jul 18, 2018 | Full Review…

The constant presence of the space left by [Rachel & Mike] exit and the solidifying of the world and characters viewers invested in year after year is a welcomed arch in a revamping of Suits that ends up being a rather enjoyable revitalization overall.

Dec 27, 2018 | Full Review…

All snark aside, the heart of Suits is the interesting bonds and dynamics, particularly those between the mentor/mentees.

Nov 13, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

But by shifting gears towards office dogfights and legal power plays, Suits might still have some juice left.

Aug 28, 2018 | Full Review…

At its core, Suits is still a ball-busting legal drama.

Aug 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Suits is as good as it's ever been as it embraces big changes in its cast, and it has a brand new energy that's even mirrored in the new (and fabulous) opening credits.

Jul 23, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

It's basically Game of Thrones set in a law firm, only the writing is terrible and everyone over-acts, and I love it.

Jul 20, 2018 | Full Review…

I'm glad there are new series regulars to share the storylines in a way that doesn't feel forced.

Jul 19, 2018 | Rating: 3.6/5 | Full Review…

Suits is coming into its eighth season not trying to replace the ones it lost but is instead working to make us care about the lives still on screen.

Audience Reviews for Suits: Season 8

  • Feb 20, 2021
    I use to love this show, I've watched it since day 1. Then season 8 happened, every episode someone mentioned how they want their name on the wall or I am COO, its like Jessica says lawyers are nothing more than power-hungry bottom feeders. That's what this season was all about how wears the biggers shoes and who name is on the wall. I am truly disappointed. I struggled to tried to finish the season, I kept giving it the benefit of the doubt and hoping maybe the next episode would be better.
  • Jul 24, 2020
    Until Season 7, I loved it. After Mike's exit, Harvey character lost the swagger. Donna was not Donna anymore. Loius and Sheila romance was annoying. Watching Katherina Heigl Botoxed face was an horror in itself.. Overall very disappointing..
  • Apr 22, 2020
    how can such a great show lose its entire charme as soon as one of the characters is forced out of the series? Once the duo Mike/Harvey is gone, you realise there would have been show at all without their witty and arrogant dialogues filling the show.
  • Apr 22, 2020
    much better than last season and hegil character is a breath of fresh air and some of the drama is getting much better
  • Apr 16, 2020
    Loved it then mike left..... Stopped watching after the 3rd episode of season 8. I liked it because of Mike, its 2 amd half men all over again
  • Apr 07, 2020
    S8 of 'Suits' is second-bottom of my overall ranking (pre-S9), but it eventually turns into an extremely satisfactory season; especially its conclusion. The departures of Meghan Markle and, particularly, Patrick J. Adams are certainly felt, it isn't as enjoyable without those two. With that said, Dulé Hill and Katherine Heigl eventually warm their ways in and have become characters I'm invested enough in. I could've done without the parts of S8 involving Jake Epstein and Amanda Schull, despite actually wanting to see the latter more at the forefront of the show.
  • Feb 19, 2020
    It's been a good ride but once you hear the word patriarchy, you know the end is nigh.
  • Nov 09, 2019
    Wow, one of my favorite TV shows absolutely sucks now. The writing has really gone down hill.
  • Oct 15, 2019
    Harvey character murdered for feminism there no creativity feminist have, it was a Harvey show dumbass. If you want to have a show on the woman's that's kool but why fucked the best show. You don't have to serve you smelly dishes with the best one to make yourself look good. People are watching show for Harvey not stupid Donna or that new smelly shit. Shityyyyyy season.

    Felt like suits got its hold back. Thoroughly entertaining drama.
