The 81st Golden Globe Awards were held on January 7, 2024. It was great to see the “Suits” crew reunite but without Meghan Markle. She was a big deal on the show and her absence got tongues wagging and stirred up emotions.
Why Meghan Wasn’t with the “Suits” Crew
At the Golden Globes, stars from “Suits” were all the rage. Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Sarah Rafferty, and Gina Torres showed up to present an award. They declared “Succession” the champ of the best drama series. Meghan Markle, who once starred as Rachel Zane between 2011 and 2018, wasn’t present.
Gina Torres spilled to Variety on the red carpet that they lost touch with Meghan’s contact info. This implied they hadn’t invited Meghan to the event. Furthermore, Torres suggested that Meghan would’ve been pleased to see them at the ceremony. This could mean that after marrying into the British royal family, Meghan has stepped back from her previous acting life along with her old peers.
The Cast’s Excitement and What’s Next
The rest of the cast felt great, even without Meghan. They looked back at the good old times on set and were excited about how many people are watching “Suits” on Netflix now. In July 2023, viewers watched it for over 3.1 billion minutes in just one week!
Patrick J. Adams said he’d jump at the chance to play Mike Ross again if the show ever came back or got a reboot. He told ET that he was ready to go whenever they called him. Everyone, including fans and the other actors, is excited because it looks like there’s going to be a new show made by Aaron Korsh, who created “Suits.”
“Suits” Streaming Success and Spinoff
After coming to Netflix, “Suits” has seen a big jump in how many people are watching it. Adams told PEOPLE at the red carpet, “It’s been super weird…to see this new surge of interest.”
The fact that the show has stayed at number one on the Nielsen Streaming Top 10 for three months shows it’s still very popular. Plus, they made a new series called “Pearson,” with Gina Torres, which came out in 2019. Now, with talks of more shows, it looks like there’s going to be even more from the “Suits” world.
Public Reactions and Speculations
People had mixed feelings about the cast getting back together and Meghan not being there. Some fans liked how Torres was clear when she talked about it, but some thought she was a bit critical without being too obvious.
Still, this caused a lot of chat about whether Meghan might act again, considering she left royal life with Prince Harry. At the Golden Globes, the host Jo Koy made a joke about the couple’s Netflix deal by saying they’re getting cash for ‘doing nothing at all.’
Future of “Suits” and Its Stars
“Suits” remains popular and there could be new stuff coming up for the show. It’s remembered for its good writing, cool characters, and big surprises that fans still talk about. Now that the show is available on streaming platforms, it’s not only a walk down memory lane for long-time fans; new viewers are starting to take notice too.
Meghan Markle’s Potential Return to Acting
A big question mark in the “Suits” story is if Meghan Markle will go back to acting. She was well-liked as Rachel Zane and then she went off to marry into Britain’s royal family, which got everyone curious about what she’ll do next. There’s no definite answer yet, but the thought of her coming back gets people pumped, including those who work in showbiz.
When the “Suits” gang got back together at the Golden Globes, it was a total throwback that got everyone pumped, but you couldn’t help noticing Meghan Markle wasn’t there. People everywhere still can’t get enough of the show, so naturally, folks are buzzing about what’s next for it and what the old cast members are up to now.
