On Tuesday, November 28th, USA and Universal Cable Productions released an official statement confirming the departure of Suits star, Meghan Markle, at the end of Season 7. The studios said:
“From all of us at USA Network and Universal Cable Productions, we want to send our most heartfelt congratulations to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on their engagement. Meghan has been a member of our family for seven years and it has been a joy to work with her. We want to thank her for her undeniable passion and dedication to Suits, and we wish her the very best.”
Suits creator Aaron Korsh also wished the best for Markle, “Congratulations to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on their engagement. Wonderful news, I wish you both a lifetime of happiness. Love, Aaron”
It’s been rumored for quite some time that the actress would report her departure from the show after the announcement of her engagement to Prince Harry. However, some other whispers from the set included the probable departure of Merkle’s costar, Patrick J Adams, from the series as well. Merkle and Adams’ characters, Rachel and Mike, are currently engaged on the series.
The second half of Suits Season 7 will premiere in early 2018.
