Meghan Markle’s last episodes of Suits to begin airing this month

Meghan Markle’s last episodes of US legal drama television series Suits will begin airing on 28 March in the United States on the USA Network. Her final episode will air on 25 April with a two-hour finale.

Markle portrays former paralegal and current attorney Rachel Zane, and her character is believed to wed her fiancé Mike Ross in the final episodes. The show airs on Wednesdays at 9/8c in the United States.

The show confirmed the return date from its winter hiatus on 2 February with a video on their official Twitter account saying, “Suitors, all your burning questions will be answered when season 7 of #Suits returns March 28 on @USA_Network.”

The trailer for the second half of the season, below, is on the YouTube channel of Suits.

The show also revealed a short clip on the social media site on 5 March with Meghan’s character and her love interest which said, “From coworkers to lovers and everything in between. Find out how Mike and Rachel’s story ends when #Suits returns March 28.”

Suits has been renewed for an eighth season, but it will continue on without Markle and her on-screen love played by Patrick J. Adams, as both are leaving the show after the current season. Katherine Heigl is due to join the show in season eight.

After Meghan’s engagement to Prince Harry was announced in November 2017, the show confirmed Markle’s exit from the hit show. At the time, the co-producers of the show, USA Network and Universal Cable Productions, released a statement saying, “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. 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.”

Markle said last year that her journey with her character Rachel had been “amazing.”

Suits main character, Harvey Specter, is played by Gabriel Macht, who will continue in the eighth season. The show initially revolved around Harvey and Mike working in a well-known New York law firm with genius Mike (with a photographic memory) being a fraudulent attorney. The first several seasons saw the characters working to keep Mike’s secret while closing their cases. It began airing in 2011.
