Meghan Markle expected to exit 'Suits' after seven seasons

Suits star Meghan Markle is expected to exit the USA Network series after seven seasons.

Her co-star, Patrick J. Adams, is also expected to leave. Markle and Adams’ characters are romantically linked and engaged on the show.  All of the Suits cast members contracts expire at the end of the seventh season, but Deadline is reporting that a renewal for an eighth season is likely.

Like with Adams, Suits also helped put establish Markle as a TV star. Her character on Suits Rachel Zane had been closely linked with Adams’ Mike Ross since Day 1, so an exit of Markle alongside Adams would make sense. Rachel and Mike currently engaged, with Suits creator Aaron Korsh teasing that their wedding may be coming in the upcoming Season 7 episodes. For the past year or so, Markle has been in a relationship with the British Prince Harry while continuing to work on Suits. 

A Suits spinoff starring Gina Torres is also in the works at the network.
