There's a Suits group chat and Meghan Markle isn't in it.

Starring Patrick J. Adams, Gabriel Macht, Sarah Rafferty and Meghan Markle, Suits explored the merciless world of law firms, associates and a lot of scandals. While the series wrapped up in 2019, it looks like the cast is still in contact with one another — well, most of the cast.

At the 2024 Golden Globes, Gina Torres, who played Jessica Pearson, was asked about her thoughts on Suits claiming first place at the top of the streaming charts in 2023 — four years on from when the series wrapped up. 

"When it all came through, we were all texting each other," the actor told Variety. "Yes, our text thread is insane right now. So it’s very exciting."

Torres admitted one cast member is not in the group chat — Meghan Markle.

"We don't have her number... We just don’t. So she'll see, she'll watch. She'll be happy that we're here."

While Patrick J. Adams and Gabriel Macht spoke of a potential Suits sequel.

“I think it’s all in early stages,” Adams told ET at the Globes. 


"It’s a show in the 'Suits' universe, like a 'Suits L.A.' Anyway, our fearless showrunner Aaron [Korsh is] working on that. If I got the phone call, I’d be ready to suit up again. I loved the show, I loved the character and I loved working with all these people."

At the mention of Markle potentially returning to the spinoff, Adams played along with the possibility: "Sure, Mike and Rachel in Seattle, they gotta come down to L.A. and fix some stuff."

Until then, here's what the cast has been doing since the original show wrapped.

Best to start with the one everyone talks about the most — Meghan Markle.

While she was on a break from filming Suits, Markle met and fell in love with Prince Harry. Her final appearance on the show was in season seven in April 2018. And the following month, she was married to one of the most recognisable royals in the world.

Evidently, after the hit show, Markle has not acted since, but has gone on to narrate various documentaries, start a podcast, Archetypes, and the 2022 docuseries Harry & Meghan.

As for acting, the 42-year-old has confirmed she does not have any plans to return.

While the royal couldn't speak to the newfound streaming success of Suits at the Golden Globes, she did talk about it to Variety back in November 2023.

"Isn’t that wild?" Markle exclaimed, adding she had "no idea" why people were watching the series four years after it ended. 

She did throw out a theory, saying, "It was great to work on, such a great cast and crew. We had a really fun time. I was on it for seven seasons, so quite a bit. But 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."

Also, despite not attending the awards ceremony, she was mentioned in the opening monologue. 


"Turns out, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will still get paid millions of dollars for doing absolutely nothing — and that's just by Netflix," comedian and host Jo Koy said.

"I have a deal, too. Chill."

Gina Torres, who played Jessica Pearson.

For Millennials and Gen Z'ers, Torres is well known for playing Vanessa Abrams' mum Gabriela on Gossip Girl. Then when Suits came along, her fan base grew.

After Suits, Torres was offered the chance to have a spin-off series Pearson, which revolved around her character. However, it only had one season.

Reflecting on her career, the actor said her idea of success has changed drastically over time.

"You think if you don't have a Tom Cruise career, you're a failure. Only Tom Cruise gets to have a Tom Cruise career. You really have to define what success is for you and your life, and you redefine it along the way. I get to do what I love to do — this little girl from the Bronx who didn't know anyone in the business, managed the impossible."

As for whether or not she stayed in touch with her co-star Markle, the answer (as stated above) is a firm no.

Even though Gina attended Meghan's royal wedding, she said they lost touch soon after.

"There's no story in why I'm not in touch with Meghan. When you're an actor, you meet hundreds of people during your career. The public only sees the characters that are on TV, but there are hundreds of people who make a show happen. You can't bring all those people with you," she told Glamour.

Gabriel Macht, who played Harvey Specter.

Gabriel Macht was definitely (in our completely non-biased opinion) a favourite on the show.

Playing Harvey Specter was his biggest TV role to date, and Macht reprised the character in the spin-off show Pearson. 

Macht and his co-star Sarah Rafferty were very close friends for over a decade prior to Suits. Interestingly, they actually first met while at drama school together.


"We are really, really, really close friends. We've been to each other's weddings. It is very hard to act with one of your best pals. But with that said, it's a lot of fun," the actor told Blast Magazine.

"We constantly say to each other, 'don't make me laugh, don't make me laugh, stop, stop, don't, stop.' It's very hard. I mean it's kind of silly that I'm her boss and I get to tell her what to do."

Their respective daughters are also "best friends".

Macht married his wife, Aussie-born actor and model Jacinda Barrett, in 2004, and they have a son and a daughter together. 

When Suits finished up, Macht said he was looking forward to focusing on family.

"I feel I've put some creative good into the world and now I want to put some creative heart, more focus and energy into [being with] my wife and my family," he said to TV Insider

"I think when you're in Harvey's head for so long, you sort of split in some ways. And so I'm looking forward to being in Gabriel's mind."

Wendell Pierce, who played Robert Zane.

Pierce was a constant throughout much of the Suits series, best known for playing Meghan Markle's on-screen father. 

In March 2021 when she and Prince Harry's famed Oprah interview went live, he shared some of his thoughts on it all.

At the time he told LBC radio: "Today 3,000 people are going to die in America from COVID. A couple of hundred people are going to die within this hour in the UK. We are in the midst of a pandemic."

Fans then pointed out that Meghan had also spoken about her poor mental health in that Oprah interview, which Wendell said he wasn't specifically referencing in his point — rather the whole focus on an internal royal family drama.

"I still believe it was insensitive and insignificant to what is happening. That doesn't belittle her mental illness. The focus was on palace gossip not her mental illness," he tweeted.

"I was fortunate to tell Meghan personally I wish her all the best. Predicting this hellacious maelstrom I also told her she would always have a friend in me. Because I had no interest in the interview doesn't change that — I wish her well."


In recent years, he's continued to act and has been a mainstay on the Prime Video hit Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan with John Krasinski and Abbie Cornish.

Patrick J. Adams, who played Mike Ross.

Arguably the second most-recognisable face from Suits, Patrick J. Adams left the show around the same time as Markle, leaving a big Mike Ross-shaped hole in our hearts.

On the topic of Adams' lasting friendship with Markle, he has often come to the defence of his on-screen love interest on multiple occasions — including in 2022.

"Meghan Markle and I spent the better part of a decade working together on Suits. From day one she was an enthusiastic, kind, cooperative, giving, joyful, and supportive member of our television family. She remained that person and colleague as fame, prestige and power accrued," he wrote on Twitter.

He then went on to criticise the monarch, saying the accusations of bullying labelled against Markle is "another example of the shamelessness of an institution that has outlived its relevance".

In 2009, Adams first met his now-wife Troian Bellisario.

After breaking up after one year of dating, he made a small guest appearance on a 2011 episode of Pretty Little Liars in order to win Troian back — and it worked. 

And as a full circle moment, the engaged couple also worked together on an episode of Suits in 2015, where Bellisario had a guest appearance.

By 2016, they were married.

The couple have two daughters together — Aurora and Elliot.

When Elliot was born in 2021, Adams said the birth story was quite iconic, as Bellisario gave birth in the hospital parking garage.

"She is on all fours, butt facing the windshield," he recalled on Katie Lowe's Katie's Crib' podcast

"Her butt's at my head level, so I just go and pull down her pants, and [the baby's] head is right there. It all took place in the span of about three minutes," he said about delivering his daughter right there in the car.


Sarah Rafferty, who played Donna Paulsen.

Donna Paulsen was quite the complex character on Suits, which made viewers fall in love with Sarah Rafferty as an actor even more.

She's appeared in a bunch of other hit TV series like Law and Order, Charmed, CSI: Miami and Bones — i.e., she loves a drama. After Suits, Sarah joined Chicago Med, portraying Dr. Pamela Blake.


She's also still married to her long-time husband Santtu Seppälä (born Aleksanteri Olli-Pekka Seppälä) who is a stock research analyst. They have two daughters together — Oona Gray and Iris Friday.

Nowadays, Rafferty said she is looking for opportunities that revolve around "strong, female characters".

"It is something that I do put my weight on. Representation matters," she said at a Comic Con event. 

"I never want to be the woman behind the man. We want to see an independent evolution and to have more women at the table. I just thought it will be a healing journey for me to see a female character become more powerful."

Rick Hoffman, who played Louis Litt.

Louis Litt was quite the character in Suits - eccentric and unpredictable to the core.

Rick Hoffman doesn't have as big of a profile as his Suits co-stars. 

Over the years, the 53-year-old has kept his relationship pretty quiet, although he recently posted about his long-term partner, saying she had made his world "infinitely better". 

He has also a young son, calling him his "love and joy".

Hoffman said he has stayed in touch with many of his Suits co-stars, noting how they were able to build a tight unit on set despite the "drama in the acting business".

"We all appreciate what we have. You have to be crazy that lasted on a show that did nine seasons," he said

"I'll never have another role like that - it was so wide-ranging. The writers are amazing."
