Meghan Markle Lands Dream Role in ‘Suits: Los Angeles’ Spin-Off Series, Rumored to Make Hollywood Directing Debut

LOS ANGELES – Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, has reportedly landed a coveted role in a spin-off series of the popular TV show “Suits.” The new series, titled “Suits: Los Angeles,” has received the green light from NBCUniversal, and the creator of the original legal drama, Aaron Korsh, has already written episodes.

According to sources, the new show will feature a female lead who bears a striking resemblance to Markle’s previous character, Rachel. The character has been tailor-made for the Duchess of Sussex, and it is considered a dream role for her.

Markle gained fame through her portrayal of paralegal Rachel Zane in the hit series “Suits.” She left the show in 2018 after marrying Prince Harry and joining the Royal Family.

The original series, “Suits,” ended in 2023 after nine seasons and 134 episodes. However, its success on platforms like Netflix and Peacock in 2023 is believed to have contributed to the decision to revive the show.

In addition to her acting role, Markle has reportedly been offered the opportunity to direct an episode of “Suits: Los Angeles.” If this comes to fruition, it will mark her Hollywood directing debut.

Sources indicate that negotiations between NBCUniversal and WME, the talent agency representing Markle, are currently underway. The production team is keen to have Markle back on board due to her massive global fan base.

“Meghan is in a commanding position,” a senior production source revealed. “They want to expand a successful franchise in which she has a ready-made fan base of millions worldwide. They want her back, and they are prepared to pay what it takes to get her.”

The announcement of Markle’s dream role coincides with reports that her TV deal is one of the biggest of 2024. The news has generated significant buzz and anticipation among fans and industry insiders alike.

In summary, Meghan Markle’s return to the small screen in “Suits: Los Angeles” is highly anticipated. With the chance to portray a character reminiscent of her previous role and even showcase her directing skills, Markle’s involvement in the spin-off series promises to be a major highlight of the TV industry in the coming years.
