‘Suits’: Patrick J. Adams Reveals How Meghan Markle’s Character Will Be Included in the Final Season
Meghan Markle played Rachel Zane on Suits before she married Prince Harry. The show continued without her after she left her role. Now the finale is coming up and Patrick J. Adams, who played her character’s love interest, is returning.
How will her character be included when she’s actually busy after recently giving birth to her son? Adams revealed how his character will talk to his wife and more about their life together off the screen.
Suits will end with Season 9
The franchise will live on through the spinoff, Pearson. However, Suits is coming to an end after two of its main characters were written off.
“Suits has played an instrumental role in our network’s DNA for nearly a decade,” Chris McCumber, president, USA Network and SYFY said in a statement according to Variety. “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.”
There was a question of what this will mean for Adams and Markle. Will these return one last time for fans?
Patrick J. Adams will return for multiple episodes
Fans won’t be seeing the Duchess again, but the good news is that Adams is returning to end the show. It’s been revealed what brings Mike back.
“I couldn’t be happier to be part of the final chapter of Suits. I’ve missed my TV family, and am looking forward to seeing what kind of trouble Mike Ross can stir up at the firm one last time,” Adams told Deadline. “But if the wardrobe department thinks they’re getting back the suits I stole when I left, they’re going to be very disappointed.”
Showrunner Aaron Korsh revealed that Mike will handle a case that will force him to go up against Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), and Samantha Wheeler (Katherine Heigl). Adams’ first episode back will be the fifth and some things will take him by surprise.
“He doesn’t exactly know that Samantha is going to be involved when he comes back, but he does know Harvey is going to be,” Korsh told Deadline. Adams and Markle were written off the show by having the characters get married and move. How will they handle Markle not returning to play Rachel?
Mike will have a phone call with Rachel
The married couple is very much together even though Markle won’t be returning. It’s just that Mike will be visiting.
“For Mike, this is just a trip to New York,” he told Entertainment Tonight. “He’s in Seattle, [Mike and Rachel] are building their life together, it sounds like he’s doing well.”
The husband will be talking to his wife on the show. “It seems to me like Mike’s in a great place. Whatever is happening in Seattle is really good,” assured Adams. “There’s phone calls with Rachel saying, ‘Goodbye, I love you,’ and, you know, I think there’s some obvious acknowledgment that she’s still there and a part of the show.”
The good news is everything is still going well with Mike and Rachel. Fans will have to wait and see what happens with his new case.
