Meghan Markle is coming back in Suits Season 7. USA Network released a new set of photos for the upcoming season and confirmed that Markle’s character, Rachel Zane, will stay in the series. She may also get married to fiancé Mike Ross this season.
There have been rumors that Markle is leaving the hit TV series to marry her boyfriend, Prince Harry, and live with him in the U.K. The photos released by the network debunked the rumors and confirmed that Megan Markle has no plan of turning her back to acting.
There have been speculations that writers will give Rachel a huge storyline in the upcoming season to keep her on the show. An insider told Grazia (via Metro), “Meghan will have a storyline in season seven which will see her have children. The producers must be keen for her to stay on until the eighth because of all of the attention the show is getting. There’s no doubt that ratings are going to soar because of her. They don’t want the spotlight on the show to end.”
