The duchess played Rachel Zane on the hit legal drama

Will Meghan Markle return to Suits after revival rumours?

Despite coming to an end in 2019, Suits has found new life on streaming services and even recently set records as one of the most streamed shows with 3.1 billion minutes watched in late June.

The show, which is available on Netflix and Peacock in the US and on Netflix in the UK with all nine seasons, broke the Nielsen streaming chart record for views starting from the week of June 29. This led to rumors that the show might be getting a revival.

Gene Klein, the show’s executive producer, talked to TVLine about the possibility of reuniting the cast for additional episodes and the show’s sudden popularity boom. “I keep, in this era of reboots and reunions and all this other stuff, that I’m expecting a call at some point,” he said, referring to producer Aaron Korsh.

I don’t know of any serious conversations, though. It’s just one of those things where you wouldn’t be shocked if someone called you someday in this day and age. But as of now, I’m not aware of anything.

The executive producer, who has also contributed to the television series The Recruit and Impulse, also hinted at the challenge of bringing Meghan Markle back to the program, saying: “I would assume that’s just not possible.”

From 2011 to 2018, Meghan played the role of paralegal Rachel Zane on the popular series. She left the drama in season seven after getting engaged to Prince Harry. Meghan discussed leaving the show during their engagement interview, saying, “It’s a new chapter, right? Remember that I’ve been working on [Suits] for seven years as well. We were incredibly fortunate to have a series last that long. It’s time to collaborate with [Harry] as a team now that I have checked this box and am extremely proud of the work I have done there.

The Duchess of Sussex later reflected on her time in Hollywood, telling Variety: “At the time, we didn’t have a name for it. Just a few things were generally accepted. You simply put up with any discomfort if it existed. Many women were forced to live with the idea of remaining silent, refraining from being obtrusive, and refraining from voicing any concerns or uncomfortable feelings.

“I had tried for so long to get on a show, filming all these pilots, wondering if they would get picked up,” she continued. I thought I was going to be recast for the entirety of Suits’ first season. Every single time. The creator eventually asked, “Why are you so concerned about this?

Meghan has narrated the Disneynature documentary Elephant since she stopped acting, and she was developing an animated Netflix series that was later canceled. The mother of two also hosted a podcast called Archetypes in which she discussed gender stereotypes of women with famous people, academics, and historians.
