Patrick J Adams has given Suits fans major emotions by sharing what could be one of the last group shots of the cast together.

The 36-year-old actor shot to fame for playing Mike Ross on the US paralegal drama, a brilliant college dropout turned unlicensed lawyer.

He and Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle – who plays his onscreen fiancée Rachel Zane – will not be returning next season. This means that his latest Instagram snap is particularly special to fans who have followed their story since 2011.

Adams' snap of the cast around a table included Gabriel Macht, Sarah Rafferty, Gina Torres and Rick Hoffman, along with Markle, who flashed her 1,000-kilowatt smile in in a black turtleneck sweater and her dark hair worn in loose waves.

Fans are devastated to hear that Adams is leaving the show, with one person commenting: "In Australian news today they reported your leaving the show... I will be the first to admit, I cried! Cleared my browser history and pretended I didn't read it!"

Another said: "Hope this isn't goodbye..." as someone else said: "RIP Rachel and Mike".

A fourth added: "The "A" Team !!!!!! ...and what an incredibly talented assembly of actors!! Thank you so much for the many hours of exemplary entertainment #suits#thankyou #actors #talent #talented ".

It was recently reported by Hollywood Reporter that the legal drama, which is filmed in Toronto, Canada, is close to confirming an eighth season while Markle and Adams "plot their exit."

Recent pictures have also shown that their characters' wedding has been filmed, which may provide an easy escape for the couple.

Meanwhile, Adams appears to be living his oen happy ever after as he tied the knot with Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario in December 2016 in California. Markle, who has been dating Britain's Prince Harry for over 18 months, is expected to get engaged to the royal sometime after the Queen and Prince Philip's 70th wedding anniversary on 20 November.
