‘Suits’ will debut on Netflix on June 17, the same day as Trooping the Colour

In recent days, the Derangers have managed to get one of their deranged conspiracies into the mainstream. The conspiracy? Netflix “canceled” Prince Harry’s Heart of Invictus docu-series. Not just that, but Netflix canceled the series because of Meghan and her clothing budget for the show? Lunatics on the internet literally make this sh-t up as they go along and everyone has to debate whether an unsourced rumor has any veracity. Newsweek had a write-up about the rumor and they declared it false. Which anyone with common sense could tell you – Heart of Invictus is still scheduled to premiere this summer, I would imagine late summer, closer to the Dusseldorf Invictus Games. I doubt Meghan will even be in the series – it will probably just focus on the athlete/veteran stories.

But that’s not the only Netflix news. This one isn’t even a rumor, Netflix confirmed all of this – the complete Suits series is coming to Netflix. On June 17th, the same day as King Charles’s Trooping the Colour parade. LMAO.

Grab the popcorn for a Meghan Markle marathon! On Saturday, the complete series of Suits is hitting Netflix queues. The Duchess of Sussex, 41, starred in legal drama as Rachel Zane from 2011 to 2018 during the show’s original run on USA Network. Shortly after Meghan and Prince Harry announced their engagement in November 2017, the cable channel announced that she was leaving the show and that the seventh season would be her last.

“From all of us at USA Network and Universal Cable Productions, we want to send our most heartfelt congratulations to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on their engagement,” the statement said. “Meghan has been a member of our family for seven years and it has been a joy to work with her. We want to thank her for her undeniable passion and dedication to Suits, and we wish her the very best.”

Though Meghan and her costar Patrick J. Adams both left their roles after season 7, Suits concluded with a ninth and final season in 2019. The legal drama is ready to reach a new audience for the first time with its Netflix premiere on June 17 — the same day as the first Trooping the Colour of King Charles’ royal reign.

[From People]

True story: I’ve never watched a full episode of Suits, but I probably will watch the series now that it’s on Netflix. I bet the show will find a new audience and new fans – that’s what happened when New Girl and Friends were put on Netflix, everyone got the chance to binge-watch the whole series from the start. As for the timing… who knows if Netflix intended it or if it was a happy accident. We know that Netflix doesn’t mind pissing off the Windsors, so probably a little bit of both. If Netflix really wanted to ruffle some royal feathers, they should promote it with “Suits was famously one of Prince William and Kate’s favorite shows, they were obsessed with it!”

    Just reading the title of this post made me chuckle lol lemme go read it now lol

  2. equality says:

    No need to mention W&K in any promo. That would just cause them to take credit for its success. That is their specialty, after all, taking credit.

  3. Polo says:

    They announced last month that it would be released in June and the creator knew a few weeks ago when the date would be. Not everything is about the royals but of course the tabloids will find a way to link the two.
    I plan on binge watching even though I’ve seen the series.
    Also jack royston can sometimes be useful. Though why didn’t he say deranged Will and Kate fans make up fake rumor?
    He always seems to include the Sussex name and fans whenever Kate and will are being dragged all over the internet by strangers. 🙄

    • Dee(2) says:

      Jack Royston is JV Royal Rota. A reasonable journalist would not have published an article based on a source from a tweet where the person literally says I know this because my cousin has an in at this company. There’s sources and then there’s silliness and if it comes to being able to slam Harry and Meghan in any way they will always default to belief in silliness.

      • HennyO says:

        This has become the standard practice for all (royal) publications nowadays; for example the rota rats, tabloids, other online publications, even broadsheets/so called ‘serious’ publications. Many of the ‘journalists/reporters live on social media for content. Twitter in particular. They steal Tweets and IG posts from posters in generals – but more so from derangers as well as Squaddies – to build their own opinions and to content their cheep pieces.

        It’s lazy reporting, it’s easy money driven clickbait.
        It’s deliberate, and the easiest way to drive an agenda and to spread disinformation and misinformation.
        It’s the fastest way to build a narrative with carefully selected tweets/opinions from people who voice the desired agenda.
        Nothing to do with real (investigative and well sourced) journalism.

    • Jan90067 says:

      It’s always been on, I think it’s Prime. I’ve been rewatching it on and off for some time. I really loved that show!

      • S says:

        And peacock. But I suppose a few might only have Netflix.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ Did Peacock always have the full series, though? Sometimes, as with Yellowstone, early seasons are made available on Peacock, while if the show is still active, current episodes are only available on the original network. The show ended in 2019 after the 9th season.

        I look forward to seeing the full series. It was well-written, and well-acted, with a top-notch production team. I watched the show via DVDs from the library, but I didn’t catch seasons 8-9, primarily because DVDs weren’t available when those seasons were active. Then, I lost interest in trying to watch when/if those final two seasons came to Peacock. By then, the show had changed direction due to central characters, Mike & Rachel, having departed. Not to mention, the Jessica Pearson character having left a season or so earlier. I loved Gina Torres as Jessica Pearson.😍

        The entire cast was great! They all had such a fun dynamic, both as their characters and as themselves. They were all very professional, friendly, and supportive of each other, on and off set. The producers, cast, and crew adored and respected Meghan (which probably made her transition to an unexpected royal viper’s nest even more disheartening, alarming, and depressing). Meg must look back on that tv series period of her life with fondness and gratitude. Plus, she’s never stopped receiving residuals! 🤑👍 She worked hard for her career, and she deserves all the continued rewards.

      • Jenna says:

        I love Suits and even after Mike and Rachel left (which broke my heart,) the show was great. I was also pretty sad when Gina Torres left, but she was back a couple times after she left. I highly recommend watching it all the way through!!

        The cast really did seem like a family, it would have been awesome to have been a part of that–they all seem like genuinely nice people.

  4. SarahCS says:

    Hahahahahahahahahahahaha, No.

    While I agree that Netflix will poke the Windsor bear at times I don’t see the British monarch’s fake birthday celebration being on their radar. It’s not a thing even here in the UK, the majority of people DNGAF about it.

    • AlpineWitch says:

      Exactly, even some royalists I know pay no attention to that. I doubt many even know when it takes place if it wasn’t for the media speaking about it.

    • ML says:

      Actually, I did read this as “poking the bear.” Remember the Diana season of the crown? Netflix has lost customers and revenue as streaming and financials have changed over the years. So, I do think they want to drum up interest, did this on purpose, and all the more power to them. ☺️

  5. Maxine Branch says:

    Meghan was one of the best parts of suits. Really loved the series and will most certainly watch it again.

    • Layla says:

      I really missed suits-era Meghan. (The OG Meghan) I’m so glad we’re finally seeing her go back to her carefree bubbly self

      • Nicki says:

        Yes, she created a fun and watchable character. They dressed her really well on the show, too. Nice wardrobe.

  6. Jane says:

    Suits has been on U.K. Netflix for years now.

  7. Miranda says:

    Now they’re gonna lose their damn minds and accuse Meghan of conspiring with Netflix to overshadow Chuck’s special day. And of course they won’t realize that what they’re really saying is that KC3 is so insignificant and irrelevant that people would rather watch repeats of a basic cable show.

    • Mary Pester says:

      This, ☝️queue the deranged and the British press pulling their hair out over this, I’m buying a large bucket of popcorn waiting for the screams to start

  8. Dee(2) says:

    This is so sad that they are even making a connection, like a show that has over a 100 episodes and would take you weeks to watch is ” overshadowing” his parade. It’s not a live event if you really wanted to watch trooping the color you could still watch that and watch Suits. I don’t know if the British media is just trolling the royals or if they legitimately expect Harry and Meghan to do nothing even adjacently on days that that family may be doing something in that country.

  9. Mei says:

    Is this America-specific? Because we watched all the seasons on Netflix in the UK and they’re still on there.

    Lovedddd the show and actually thought the final season was one of the best.

    • Jojo says:

      Yes. It’s USA specific. It’s been available for a long time on UK NF. I binge watched it all a few months ago and thoroughly enjoyed it all over again.

      Just read a post further down and now I’m questioning myself if I actually watched it on Prime. Can’t remember tbh.

  10. JanetDR says:

    Looking forward to checking it out!

  11. Zee says:

    Lol Suits is already available for us in South Africa and I can’t wait to bingwatch on Saturday

  12. Bingo says:

    It will be funny to see a show that ended years ago will trend higher than Charles poop show.

  13. Linder says:

    I guess the release is on U. S. Netflix because I’m in Canada and we have been able to watch it for a long time. It’s not a bad show. The plot line is interesting.

  14. Snuffles says:

    I actually started watching it on Amazon Prime last month. I’m almost finished with Season 2. It’s actually quite enjoyable. And could actually get into Meghan’s character Rachel and not think about Meghan Markle, The Duchess of Sussex while watching.

  15. Flower says:

    LMAO top marks to that marketing person !

  16. Brassy Rebel says:

    This is cool because I haven’t seen a single episode.

  17. Amy Bee says:

    Suits has been on my Netflix for years. It’s great show. For a few years the Korean version was also on Netflix. In my opinion the Korean show was even better than the original.

  18. Over it says:

    Chucky riding his half sloshed horsey or watching Meghan and her co-workers looking good and alive , Decisions made,I am suiting up to Netflix

  19. Jais says:

    Off-topic, but it’s so interesting to see Meghan with that red hair in the top pic. It’d be funny if she revisited that color and did a ginger family pic one day. I never watched suits but am gonna give it a try.

    • tamsin says:

      I understand that both parents must have the recessive gene in order to produce a baby with red hair. There probably would be red hair on the Markle side of the family, and possibly even Doria’s somewhere, so it really isn’t a mystery or surprise that there are two little red-headed little Sussexes.

      • Lulu says:

        Besides being light-skinned, Meghan has lots of freckles. Most cases of freckles and red hair are caused by the same gene — MC1R. So it’s not a surprise that both her kids turned out gingers. If only the royal racist (Pegs) had an iota of knowledge/education, he would have known that any potential Sussex kids would come out ‘white-passing’. Alas, racism defies all common sense and logic.

        Red hair looks great on Meghan’s skin tone. I wouldn’t hate it if she went back to that shade! 🙂

      • Nicole says:

        As a Black woman with red hair and freckles, it’s really not that uncommon with black folks, cus slavery. When I go to my colorist, I always tell them, I have red hair, and it doesn’t take much for it to come out, put in all the ash that you can cus It. Will. Turn. Red. Rather than people being surprised, I would day it was likely an inevitability that Meghan would produce gingers.

      • Normades says:

        I have a friend who is 1/2 maybe 1/4 black how you look at it, her husband is white w/ brown hair and their kids all have red or reddish brown hair. I think it’s just really normal.

      • aftershocks says:

        Biologically, Meg has to carry one gene for red hair, along with her obvious gene for brown hair, combined with Harry’s two genes for red hair, in order to produce kids with red hair. Even then (due to the red hair gene being recessive), statistically M&H having red-haired offspring is one in four, or two in five. Thus, the child they lost surely did not have red hair. Gotta admit though that the red-haired gene is strong among the Spencers. Plus, Meg is related to the Spencer family via her father’s maternal ancestry.

    • ChattyCath says:

      Red hair appearing is NOT ‘one in four children’ it’s a one in four CHANCE per conception. Thus a recessive gene may affect ALL the children in a family as happened to a friend who carried recessive muscular dystrophy. Here I’m expecting red hair in the Thomas Markle line.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ Right @ChattyCath, I phrased the statistical factors inaccurately. Honestly, it’s even a bit more complicated than can be simply expressed. Biologists are still studying gene implications and the role of DNA in skin, hair, and eye color differences/ prevalences.

        Based on what is currently known, a parent with two red hair alleles and a parent with one brown hair allele & one red hair allele, have a 50% chance per conception of having a child with red hair. The 1 in 4 chance of red-haired offspring per conception, apparently pertains to two parents with brown hair who both carry a red hair allele. 🧑‍🦰👩‍🦰🙅

      • aftershocks says:

        @ChattyCath: “Here I’m expecting red hair in the Thomas Markle line.”

        There’s no question that red hair runs in the Markle line. Tom Jr had deep red hair in his youth. A group photo of him at 19, when Meg was 4, distinctly shows his red hair color. Plus, as I said, Tom Sr’s mother’s ancestral line connects with the Spencer line (lots of red hair genes exist among the Spencers).

  20. Tish says:

    Canadian here. Suits is great! Actually kinda helped me be chill in an ugly divorce 🙂 V cute wink to the real life Meghan after her departure.

  21. Happy trouping day Chuckles. Sorry won’t be watching cause there is a show on Netflix that I’m going to watch. Sorry if that doesn’t suit you.

    • Mary Pester says:

      @susanCollins, and I expect William will have it all set up to record it because he will be at the dog and pony show 🤣🤣🤣

      • Lilly (with the double-L) says:

        Thanks you two for the laughs! I’ve binged it on other platforms, but maybe again?

    • Debbie says:

      Coronations, Trooping, etc. just how many treats does this old man need?! I should have thought he would have outgrown it by now. Hold your little events, if you must, but this crying need for everyone’s attention is bizarre to me.

  22. Bee says:

    LOLOL. Netflix is totally doing this on purpose! Unlike KFC they know how to use google calendar. More power to them! 

  23. Eurydice says:

    Too funny. “They canceled the documentary! It’s totally true because my grade school’s friend’s second-cousin’s dog groomer’s son knows somebody who delivers mail to Netflix.”

    The Newsweek “fact check” was funny, too. Paragraphs and paragraphs and paragraphs rehashing the whole H&M story before they got to the “false” right at the end.

  24. Izzy says:

    I don’t know if Netflix did this on purpose but if they did, that is some Jedi Master-level trolling

    • Kelsey says:

      I’m starting to believe that SOMEONE in Netflix is petty as hell against the BRF because didn’t they release Harry & Meghan really close to some royal event too? I think it’s funny af. I thought it was a coincidence at first but now I kinda DON’T and I’m kinda amused by it.

    • Normades says:

      Yes I think Netflix is straight out trolling and I will play suits on mute just to give them views.

    • Debbie says:

      As if the people who intentionally scheduled Charles’ coronation on the same day as Archie’s birthday (I’m sure to capitalize on any attention given to Archie on that day) had any room to criticize. Out of 365 days that’s the day they pick? Was Lili’s birthday taken or something?

  25. tamsin says:

    The RR live under a rock and are totally unaware that in the big wide world, something is going every single hour of every day. Do they realize how pathetic they make themselves and the royal family sound? I would be embarrassed to be a member of the royal family. So when Heart of Invictus comes on, both Harry and Meghan will be streaming in separate series. I imagine the RR will predictably spewing venom for dozens of articles over it.

    • Scooby Gang says:

      Yes!! This is what drives me bonkers! They really are pathetic to believe that they get to monopolize every day of the year and expect that nobody anywhere has the right to do anything… whether launching a big important new initiative or taking a freaking walk!

      The royal calendar doesn’t dictate what the world can and can’t do.

      They’re a tiny little group of awfulness that should only see what the world really thinks of them.

  26. Chantal says:

    Suits is on Amazon Prime and Hulu in the US. I had never gotten around to watching it on USA Network so finally watched it on Amazon a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. I will definitely rewatch it.

    The release date is quite funny! The BM will eventually learn that the rest of the world doesn’t revolve around the Windsor clock. And the derangers should be tired of constantly being proven wrong and should be embarrassed when blatant lies are traced directly back to them. But I’m sure they’re busy working on the next lie right now…sigh.

  27. MommaD says:

    I watched Suits. It’s actually a really good show!

  28. HennyO says:

    Suits is on Netflix cable in some European countries for a few years already (i.e., I re-watched a few episodes when staying with family in The Netherlands. Netflix is even in the most basic cable TV subscription in the Netherlands and Belgium). So, this announcement is not a worldwide Netflix premier.

  29. Common sense says:

    Suits has been on Netflix for years in South Africa.

  30. Aud says:

    It was already on Netflix Canada so I binged it. It’s a really good show.

  31. Nicole says:

    For all the international commenters thank you for letting me know that Suits is being broadcast worldwide. It’s kind of interesting that people are saying that Meg was a gold digger, when its clearly easy to see that she brings A LOT of money to the table having had a successful acting career. Residual TV income is a thing. IJS.

  32. AliSays says:

    Rachel Zane , take it away !
    MC Trooping Of the Netizens 🪬

  33. L4Frimaire says:

    I don’t think the debut date is that big a deal since it’s for the US and once it’s up it will be accessible at any time. Trooping if just a one day event in the UK. Hopefully this means more income for Meghan from royalties.

    • aftershocks says:

      Meg receives royalties on the regular for all of her acting work in television, feature films, the Hallmark movies, and Disney’s Elephant documentary. Definitely, Suits, in all its syndications, will continue being for Meg, ‘the gift that keeps on giving.’

  34. Tessa says:

    So if there are low ratings for charles then derangers can blame meghan. Its not as if it is only on during trooping.Some can opt to watch episodes at their own pace or binge watch. Or not watch the trooping to go on vacation. Go to the theatre instead or the movies.

  35. Gaah says:

    Suits has been on Netflix Canada for over a year if not longer.
