Filming for the new episodes, which are expected to be the last featuring the current cast, began today.
Robert Vaughn, Robert Glenister, Kelly Adams, Matt Di Angelo and Adrian Lester will return for the series, which will see the characters trying to pull off their biggest con yet.
The group will also attempt to scam the world of slimming pills and try to carry out a difficult gold heist.
"Hustle has been a big part of my life for the last eight years," Lester said. "The time is right for me to move on. I'm looking forward to seeing what tricks the gang get up to in this last series and I'm very pleased to be given the opportunity to direct one of the episodes."
Meanwhile, the show's executive producer Karen Wilson said: "Hustle goes from strength to strength every year, cementing its position as one of BBC One's most successful dramas. The new series will be no exception, featuring some fantastic cons that will keep viewers guessing until the very end of each episode with daring double-bluffs and unexpected twists and turns."
The eighth series of Hustle will be filmed this summer in Birmingham and London and the show will air on BBC One next year.
