NBCUniversal has greenlit the pilot for “Suits: LA,” a new legal drama created by Aaron Korsh, the mastermind behind the popular series “Suits.” This fresh show will delve into the intricacies of a Hollywood law firm, offering viewers a glimpse into the legal landscape of Los Angeles.
The plot revolves around Ted Black, a former federal prosecutor from New York who finds himself navigating the high-stakes world of elite clients in LA. Alongside Ted are a diverse array of characters who navigate the blurred lines between their personal and professional lives.
While filming is scheduled to commence in Vancouver in late March, the lead actor for the series has yet to be announced. However, there is speculation surrounding the potential return of Meghan Markle, who gained fame through her role in the original “Suits” series. Korsh has introduced a character named Erica, described as a savvy and ambitious Californian woman, leading some to speculate if this role could entice Markle back to acting.
Despite Markle’s absence from recent “Suits” reunions, fans remain hopeful for her comeback, especially with the show’s resurgence on Netflix. Markle, who portrayed paralegal Rachel Zane, departed the series in 2018 before her marriage to Prince Harry.
However, the dynamics between Markle and her former co-stars appear to have shifted since then. Patrick J. Adams, who played Markle’s love interest on screen, expressed uncertainty about reconnecting with her, citing intimidation and fear. Similarly, Gina Torres, another former cast member, disclosed that they no longer have Markle’s contact details.
As speculation continues about Markle’s potential involvement in “Suits: LA,” fans eagerly await updates on the pilot and the cast lineup. Whether or not Markle graces the small screen again, anticipation for this new legal drama remains high.
