USA Network announced yesterday that there are only nine episodes left before the long-running series comes to a close.
"Suits has played an instrumental role in our network's DNA for nearly a decade," said Chris McCumber, the president of the USA network. "I and everyone at USA Network sincerely thank Aaron Korsh, our partners at UCP and the entire Suits family for their tremendous creativity, devotion and support over a truly amazing run."
Now that we've got the facts out of the way, let's address what we care about the most —Meghan Markle.
As you all know, the actress hung up her law degree and said goodbye to the show after seven seasons. Sure, we can't blame her for leaving and becoming a Royal...I mean, who would pass up that opportunity? But what we can do is start a petition to BRING HER BACK! At least for an episode, or the entire season. Either way, it's mandatory she makes at least one cheeky cameo!
Now, before you tell me she's too busy with her royal duties and won't be allowed to return to acting, creator and executive producer Aaron Korsh hinted that there's still a chance she might reappear.
“As of this minute, I don’t know which of our old original cast will be back and which won’t because we’re so early in the season. I can tell you that those things in the papers [about making a charitable donation to get Markle on board], I have no idea what they’re talking about,” he toldDeadline.
“I have not arranged for millions of dollars to be donated to anything on behalf of anyone so that I can tell you," he added. "But as far as the original people coming back including [Gina Torres‘ character], Jessica, we’re so early in the season that we haven’t formulated what we want to do, so we can’t reach out to people before we know what we want to do."
Sooo... it's possible. Never say never, right?
While we await the news of when the upcoming series will air and who will be returning, I can inform you that Gina Torres's character Jessica Pearson will appear in her own spin-off titled Pearson.
