But like any good courtroom drama, all good things must come to an end. The show's conclusion was brought about by a variety of factors, both on and off the screen. One of the primary reasons was the natural and fascinating progression of the characters' storylines, and over the course of the series, we saw our favorite attorneys grow, change, and face their demons.

Additionally, the departure of key cast members played a significant role in the show's conclusion, insert Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, who portrayed the fierce and fabulous Rachel Zane, decided to trade in her courtroom battles for a real-life role as a member of the British royal family. This, of course, led to her character's departure from the show, leaving fans both heartbroken and curious about what lay ahead for the show's future.

Luckily for legal enthusiasts, Suits didn't go down without a fight. The show's creators and writers expertly crafted a final season that tied up loose ends and gave fans the closure they deserved. From Mike Ross returning to lend a hand to the firm to the final battle against Faye Richardson, the conclusion of Suits was a rollercoaster ride of emotions.

So, why exactly did the show get axed?

Ahead of the show's cancellation, USA Network's president Chris McCumber announced that the show was getting canceled, much to the dismay of fans. Followers of the show were even more intrigued about what caused the company to give the show the heave-ho. While speaking to Deadline, Aaron Korsh, the show's boss commented on the finale, saying:

"During the course of season 7, as they were negotiating the cast’s contracts for two years, an unforeseen thing happened. You can never know that one of your stars is going to marry the Prince of England, and Patrick decided not to return, so we had a choice whether to keep going after season 7," Aaron said.

Aaron also shared that the show had become like a family.

“I feel like for nine years, it was a show about loyalty and family. On screen they were a family that struggled with loyalty but in the end, usually came through for each other.”
