Meghan Markle’s show ‘Suits’ breaks streaming record

Meghan Markle’s popular show “Suits” has achieved a new record in viewership, four years after the series ended.

The USA Network series, which aired from 2011 to 2019, accumulated 3.14 billion minutes of streaming time during the week of June 26 to July 2, following its debut on Netflix last month, according to Nielsen.

This surpasses the previous record held by “Manifest,” which had a total of 2.49 billion minutes of watch time, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter.

However, the number of minutes watched for “Suits” may be slightly higher as Nielsen’s calculations only consider television viewing in the U.S., excluding streaming on phones and tablets.

Although the show ran for nine seasons, Meghan Markle left after Season 7 following her engagement to Prince Harry in 2017.

The couple got married at Windsor Castle in May 2018 and have since welcomed two children: son Archie, aged 4, and daughter Lilibet, aged 2.

Although Markle had previously left the acting industry, sources informed TheFantasyTimes in May that she signed a deal with Hollywood agent Ari Emanuel’s talent agency, WME, to become a prominent figure in the industry.

“While she is undeniably an actress, this is not about her starring in movies or shows. It is about her producing projects and taking charge. She wants to be in control,” revealed an insider.
