Back in 2011, Suits hit the USA Network, bringing the wild story of a college dropout named Mike and his partner in crime, taking some wild court cases, and making legal drama look like peak fiction. Naturally, there’s more to this show than just this dynamic duo. There’s a whole slew of lawyers, paralegals, judges, and everyone in between, but all of them were played by top-tier actors and actresses like Dulé Hill, Rachael Harris, Gina Torres, and many more.
After nine seasons of amazing television, the show aired its last episode in 2019. No, we don’t talk about the spinoff that nobody asked for. And now that Suits has finally landed on Netflix and become one of the most-watched series on the platform, it would be nice to see how the cast is doing today.
1. Neal McDonough
Neal had a recurring gig on Suits portraying Sean Cahill. But don’t let that fool you; this guy’s got a huge list of films and TV roles on his resume, from Desperate Housewives to playing Damien Darhk in The CW’s Arrowverse. Seriously, he’s been all over the place since Suits wrapped up the final season: Yellowstone, Project Blue Book, American Horror Story, and more!
2. Gabriel Macht
Gabriel hit the career jackpot with his role as Harvey Specter in Suits, but these days, he’s focused on family, with his wife Jacinda Barrett and their two children. In September 2023, Macht joined the SAG-AFTRA strike, acknowledging the surprising success of Suits on streaming platforms and calling for actors to receive better residuals, given the show’s massive profits on Netflix and Hulu. During the show’s final season, Macht realized just how popular Suits had become when people on the streets started recognizing him.
3. Gina Torres
Gina Torres rocked the role of law firm partner Jessica Pearson for a solid seven seasons before she went solo in that not-so-great spinoff, “Pearson.” But hey, she’s been keeping herself busy since that show’s demise. You can catch her in stuff like Westworld and 9-1-1 and as a voice in animated series like The Legend of Vox Machina and Elena of Avalor. Now, Jessica Pearson? That’s a highlight in her career. She even spilled the beans to Entertainment Weekly that the role was originally written for a dude but got a total makeover just for her. Pretty cool, right?
4. Dulé Hill
Dulé Hill, known for The West Wing and Psych, joined the Suits cast in its seventh season. In one of the interviews, he admitted he was already a big fan of the show, so getting on board was a dream come true. After Suits, he jumped right into more Psych shenanigans. In 2021, he got a role on the reboot of The Wonder Years, but it’s now going to be a Black family in the 1960s.
5. Meghan Markle
So, what’s Meghan Markle been up to since her Suits days? Oh, that’s right, she married Prince Harry and became a Duchess in 2018. But even before that royal gig, things got a bit tricky when she was still on the show and dating Harry. Buckingham Palace somehow got their hands on the scripts and occasionally asked the writers to change her lines. Ever since her wedding, Meghan has become one of the most widely recognized individuals in the world. She has made headlines for stepping back from her royal duties, relocating to sunny California, raising two kids, dropping some hot disses in an interview with Oprah, and making huge deals with Netflix and Spotify. But guess what? There’s a chance that she might come back to acting. Guess we’ll have to wait and see!
6. Rachael Harris
Rachael Harris has been a big name in the industry way before her role in Suits. And guess what? While she was at it, she was pulling double duty on CW’s Lucifer. Post-Suits, she appeared in guest roles on shows like Ghosts and Fantasy Island, to name a couple. Oh, and there was this one project that almost got greenlit – an ABC pilot she did with her bestie Cheryl Hines called Barracudas. It was supposed to be a show about two lawyer sisters who help their clients escape bad marriages but can’t seem to fix their own drama. Sadly, it never got to see the light of day.
7. Patrick J. Adams
Patrick had been on the Suits roster since day for nine long seasons, which was a big commitment for him at the time. But unlike Macht, Adams didn’t waste a minute once the show wrapped up. Almost immediately, he signed up for playing the legendary astronaut John Glenn in The Right Stuff. After that, there were some other projects, but they were not as memorable or impactful. And on the personal front, Adams became a married man in 2016 after tying the knot with Troian Bellisario, who you may remember from Pretty Little Liars.
