Executive producer Gene Klein is optimistic about the potential for a reunion of the popular legal drama “Suits” as it continues to gain popularity on streaming platforms. However, he recognizes the challenges that may arise in securing the participation of Meghan Markle, who portrayed the character Rachel Zane on the show.
Markle was a member of the “Suits” cast from its inception in 2011 until her character’s departure in the seventh season in 2018, shortly before her marriage to Prince Harry. The show ultimately concluded in 2019 after a successful nine-season run.
Given the recent trend of reboots and reunions in the entertainment industry, Klein anticipates that a call for a “Suits” reunion may arise. However, he emphasizes that there have been no substantive discussions regarding this matter thus far.
Klein acknowledges that maintaining the cast’s cohesion during the show’s original run posed its challenges. Nevertheless, he expresses his enthusiasm for the prospect of a reunion, highlighting the strong bonds that were formed among the cast members throughout their years of collaboration.
In 2021, Markle playfully discussed the idea of a “Suits” reunion with comedian Melissa McCarthy in an online video celebrating Markle’s 40th birthday. Since her marriage to Prince Harry and her subsequent transition into a senior royal role in 2018, Markle has retired from acting. However, in 2020, she and Prince Harry stepped down from their royal duties and relocated to Southern California, where they embarked on new ventures in partnership with Netflix and Spotify.
With the uncertainty surrounding Markle’s availability, the potential for a “Suits” reunion remains uncertain. Nonetheless, Klein remains hopeful that such an event could transpire, bringing the beloved cast back together for a memorable reunion.
