Meghan Markle and Patrick J Adams leaving Suits after seven seasons

Meghan Markle and Patrick J Adams leaving Suits after seven seasons

Though Adams and Markle may slide away from the show after its seventh season, the door would remain open for them to return as guests or in recurring roles in future episodes.

In the show, Mike Ross (Adams), an associate at a prestigious Manhattan law firm, is engaged to Rachel Zane (Markle), a former paralegal and now lawyer. "He made his mind up a while ago", an insider told Us of Adams.

While "security issues" are cited as the reason that Markle was presumed to be leaving (keeping her safe and sound now that she's Prince Harry's girlfriend is likely the issue in question) in that September report, it's also easy to see that Markle has been slowly pulling away from her career as an actor for some time. She is taking Mike actor Patrick J Adams along. "He's going back, so there will be a season 8 and as of now, 9", the insider added.


Reps for Adams and the network declined to comment on the report; however, a source tells EW that discussions are still ongoing. If Adams and Markle end up exiting, that'll leave original series regulars Gabriel Macht, Rick Hoffman, and Sarah Rafferty to hold down the fort. In fact, according to Deadline, Adams has been looking to move on for some time and, as many of us can guess, although Markle hasn't explicitly stated this, she has plenty of other projects and responsibilities in her life at the moment. This is true on all long-running shows, and people have things happening in their lives. "She loved being on the show, and we loved having her on the show, that's why we're doing the spin-off". But she is not leaving alone.

"I went to bed, and woke up in the morning and realized "Oh, yeah". Meghan and the Suits cast were reportedly spotted in the King Edward Hotel in Toronto where the actress was seen repeating the £5,400 Anne Barge dress she wore in season five.
