It would have been a major coup for Suits to secure a guest appearance by Duchess of Sussex (and original cast member) Meghan Markle for its upcoming ninth and a final season, but as series creator Aaron Korsh had indicated in a Deadline interview last week, that probably won’t happen.
He reiterated the sentiment at TCA today while promoting the upcoming Suits spinoff Pearson starring Gina Torres.
“I would love it, but I think it’s pretty close to zero,” he said of the odds of Markle coming back, noting that the show is “not currently pursuing asking Meghan to leave her position with the royal family and join us.”
He later told Deadline that this was out of respect for the former actress and her new royal duties. “We love her, we wish her well but I don’t think that’s happening.”
