Meghan Markle is reportedly on the brink of securing a major television deal, touted as “one of the biggest TV deals of the year,” in a role tailored specifically for her, according to an insider.

The Duchess of Sussex is said to have received an offer for a “dream role” that would mark her return to the small screen in a spin-off of the popular TV series Suits. Sources indicate that Meghan has been approached to feature in at least one episode of the legal drama’s upcoming series, with the performance exclusively crafted for her.

A senior production source, as reported by the Daily Express, revealed ongoing discussions between the network and WME, the powerhouse talent agency representing Meghan. The source commented, “This is shaping up to be one of the biggest TV deals of the year.

Meghan is in a commanding position. 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.”

NBCUniversal has allegedly given the green light for the development of Suits: Los Angeles, with episodes already scripted by Aaron Korsh, the creator of Suits. The new show is said to feature a female lead with a striking resemblance to Meghan’s previous character, Rachel. Hints from the insider suggest that an official announcement about the new season could come as early as next month.

Meghan departed Suits in 2018 when she joined the Royal Family and married Prince Harry. Suits ran for nine seasons over eight years, concluding in 2019, a year after Meghan and her co-star Patrick Adams left the series. The show experienced a resurgence in 2023 after landing on Netflix, quickly becoming one of the most-watched shows on the platform that year.

During a red carpet event in November, the Duchess of Sussex learned that the show had accumulated 45 billion minutes of streaming on Netflix and Peacock combined. Expressing surprise at the figures, Meghan remarked, “Isn’t that wild?” She went on to speculate about the show’s enduring appeal, stating, “It’s hard to find a show you can binge-watch that many episodes of these days, so that could have something to do with it. But good shows are everlasting.”
