Meghan Markle departed USA network's popular legal drama Suits at the end of its seventh season to become the Duchess of Sussex. Her on-screen husband, Patrick J. Adams, exited the show at the same time. Their characters, Rachel Zane and Mike Ross, rode off into the sunset together after their long-awaited wedding. While neither character appeared in the eighth season, Suits recently announced Adams would return for the ninth and final season.
After it was revealed Mike Ross would be back to stir up some trouble for his former colleagues on the show, fans were left wondering what would happen to Duchess Meghan's character Rachel. Suits continued to tease fans by including Rachel in the season nine trailer.
So, will Duchess Meghan appear in the final season of Suits? Despite being heavily featured in the teaser, the possibility of a cameo remains unlikely. The show's creator, Aaron Korsh, spoke to Deadline about the speculation regarding Rachel recently. "I can tell you that those things in the papers, I have no idea what they're talking about," he said.
A source involved with Suits told The Daily Star a different story, though. "We could create a storyline where Rachel and Mike have created new lives for themselves and are starting a family, with Rachel showing an obvious baby bump," the sourced said. "I believe we could get away with only one or two lines from Rachel, perhaps saying how she would never have believed she would have such a wonderful life. This particular route would beautifully mirror real life."
Who's excited for Mike's return on Suits? Are you still holding out hope for Rachel's comeback, as well?
