Meghan Markle joining a Suits reunion has always been considered a long shot.
Unless it isn’t?
A reunion of the Suit stars has been majorly sought after since the show has exploded with new fans rewatching the show on Netflix.
While the gang recently got together for a viral moment at the Golden Globes, talk of spinoff is more top topic of mind for diehard fans.
Well, there’s a story going around right now that just might excite all those that miss paralegal Rachel Zane
Given the show’s second run of success, a spin-off is being discussed and is in the works.
In one of his recent Puck newsletters, journalist Matthew Belloni revealed new details about the show.
In the memo, there’s mention of a character named Erica. The producers of the team are looking for someone who fits the description: “30s, Black, SoCal native, and Harvard law alum. She’s jockeying to be made Head of Entertainment. She’s great at closing clients but struggles elsewhere. Smarter than everyone.”
Almost immediately, fans began to consider if NBCUniversal wasn’t crafting a role to hand to Meghan on a silver platter.
No word yet from Meghan on if she’s even interested, but it looks like one could get their hopes if they wanted to.
Elsewhere, other original stars do have the spinoff on their radar. Patrick Adams said as much about the Suits spinoff on the Globes red carpet.
“We found out about — well, it’s not a revival — but a ‘Suits’ spinoff. I think it’s all in early stages. But what did they say? It’s a show in the ‘Suits’ universe. Like a ‘Suits L.A.,’” Adams shared.
He added, ” If I got the phone call, I’m ready to suit up again. I love the show, I love the character. And I loved working with all these people.”
Sure he would — but what about Meghan? Would she be so keen to join?
When asked about Meghan’s return, Adams admitted he had high hopes. “Sure. Mike and Rachel in Seattle. They gotta come down to L.A., they gotta fix some stuff,” he said of his and Markle’s character.
“She’s pretty popular right now,” he added of her. “Did you hear about Meghan? I’ll tell you later,” he joked.
As the show is enjoying a renaissance on Netflix, Suits stars Sarah Rafferty, Gina Torres, Patrick J. Adams and Gabriel Macht made a surprise appearance at the 2024 Golden Globes.
The quartet presented the award for Best Television Series — Drama, which went to Succession.
Given her notoriety, it was glaringly obviously that Meghan wasn’t there. In her absence, it was left to her former co-stars to explain away her, well, absence.
Turns out, even if they wanted to invite Meghan to the big night, they had no way of doing so.
“We don’t have her number,” Torres said of Meghan, in an interview on the Globes red carpet.
Yes, apparently there is a group chat between the other cast members that Meghan has not been apart of, thus there was no telling her a reunion was happening. Still, Torres quickly added that she thought the royal would be cheering them on.
“She’ll see, she’ll watch,” she added. “She’ll be happy that we’re here.”
Strictly speaking, however, the invite to attend really should’ve come from the show producers. Apparently, it did not.
“Harry and Meghan were not invited to last night’s Golden Globe awards,” posted royal commentator Angela Levin on X on the night of the ceremony.
“They can get away from that by insisting they were busy. But it is much harder to escape the effect of the heavy mocking especially of Meghan,” she added.
“Harry and Meghan Markle got paid millions for doing absolutely nothing – and that’s just by Netflix,” he said.
