USA Network announced that it has renewed Suits for a final season with Season 9. Chris McCumber, president, USA Network and SYFY gave a statement about the decision.

Suits has played an instrumental role in our network’s DNA for nearly a decade,” said McCumber 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.”

The network will still be going forward with the spinoff, Pearson starring Gina Torres as Jessica Pearson. But will Meghan Markle return for the final season?

Previous reports claim Meghan Markle was being offered millions to donate to a charity to return to Suits

One of the first questions that came up when it was announced that Suits is coming to an end is whether the original cast will return including Meghan Markle. It was previously reported by Daily Mail UK that producers of the show were offering a multi-million dollar check that Meghan Markle could donate in order to return for a final episode.

“No final figure has yet been arrived at but negotiations are likely to be opened in the very near future,” a source said. “I’ve heard sums ranging from two to six million being kicked around and that sounds a lot – but it would be one of the biggest marketing coups in TV history.” But is this report actually true?

The creator shut down rumors when asked about a possible appearance of Meghan Markle getting set up for millions of dollars. “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,” Korsh told Deadline. “I can tell you that those things in the papers, I have no idea what they’re talking about.”

He went on to say “I have not arranged for millions of dollars to be donated to anything on behalf of anyone so that I can tell you, but as far as the original people coming back including 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.”

It looks like it’s just too early to announce who will be back for Season 9. But the creator of the show says Markle hasn’t been offered millions to return.
