UPDATE: It’s official! A day after Meghan Markle signaled that she’d be quitting her long-running TV series Suits at the end of its current season, the USA Network has made her departure official in a blog post on Tuesday (November 28).
“From all of us at USA Network and Universal Cable Productions, we want to send our most heartfelt congratulations to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on their engagement,” a statement read.

Meghan has been a member of our family for seven years and it has been a joy to work with her. We want to thank her for her undeniable passion and dedication to Suits, and we wish her the very best.”

ORIGINAL: Meghan Markle has given the strongest indication yet that she will be walking away from her hit US series Suits.
The Los Angeles-born actress has starred in the USA Network legal drama as Rachel Zane, but recently it was reported that Markle and co-star Patrick J. Adams were likely to leave Suits if an eighth season were ordered.
With the news of Meghan’s engagement to Prince Harry indicating that she’ll soon be taking on official duties with the royal family, the actress has given the most overt signal yet that her time on Suits is coming to an end.

“I don’t see [my engagement] as giving anything up, I just see it as a change,” she told BBC News. “It’s a new chapter. Also, keep in mind, I’ve been working on my show for seven years.
“We’re very, very fortunate to have that sort of longevity on a series. Once we hit the 100 episode marker, I thought, ‘You know, I have ticked this box’. I feel really proud of the work that I’ve done there, and now it’s time to work as a team [with Harry].”

Digital Spy has reached out to Meghan Markle’s representatives for clarification on her future with Suits.
If Meghan does end up leaving her show, it doesn’t mean that Suits will necessarily be coming to a close. Series creator Aaron Korsh recently confirmed that he was writing the end of the seventh season as merely the conclusion of a chapter.

“I’m always operating under the assumption that we’ll be back next year,” Korsh said this autumn. “It’s never been wrong yet; obviously one day it will be wrong and when that time comes, I’ll know well in advance.”
The writer added of season seven’s finale: “I’m highly confident that we’ll be back for season 8, so I’m planning it as end of chapter.”
Of course, the seventh season finale will also serve as a backdoor pilot for a Suits spin-off based around fan-favourite character Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) entering the corrupt world of Chicago politics.

Now for these two love birds: last season, Donna just walks away without a reaction, really, and without giving Harvey a chance to respond. What’s going through his head in that moment?

From the producers: KORSH | We’ll probably largely answer that in the back six [episodes]. Harvey is largely stunned and shocked. At the end of this episode, he is still, to some degree, in “What just happened?” mode. He’s shocked and processing what just happened. MACHT | I think he’s in this state of like, “Was there something there? Did I feel something? I don’t know if I felt something. Did you just put me into a position that I have been fighting my whole life against – infidelity?” His mother cheated on his father. It’s a big theme in his life. There’s part of that. TVLINE | Does the fact that Harvey didn’t see this coming mean that Harvey’s been in more denial than Donna? Or is it just that Harvey hasn’t been thinking about that and hasn’t had those feelings? KORSH | Feelings are complicated, and certain people can have feelings for more than one person at the same time and not know what their feelings are and things of that nature. For me, it’s not that he was in denial. It’s that he was thinking about other things. Harvey spends a lot of time thinking about himself, and not really a lot of time necessarily thinking about others. I wouldn’t necessarily call it denial, but you could, I suppose, make the case that not thinking about it is a form of denial. TVLINE | Is there anything you can tease about what comes next in Season 7B? KORSH | Obviously, there’s going to be aftermath. Think about the circumstances under which Donna did that. Think about Harvey’s current situation. Whether you’re rooting for Harvey and Donna or not, it’s still a bold maneuver to do that to someone else while they’re in a relationship, and especially given Harvey’s feelings on what it is to be faithful to another person. All I can say is it’s absolutely going to have its ramifications, and we’ll play that out over the back six [episodes] and, hopefully, [that] sets us up for a nice run in Season 8. TVLINE | In the past, the characters have said they couldn’t be together and work together. Could you see them finding some way to make a relationship and their work co-exist? MACHT | I think it’d be really difficult. It’d be really hard based on their rhythm and how they’ve worked thus far. I don’t see how it could be possible. [But] I have been wrong many times in my life. [Laughs]
