Popular US legal drama Suits could lose two of its main cast members at the end of season 7, entertainment website Deadline has reported.

The contracts of both Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle, who play talented lawyer Mike Ross and senior paralegal Rachel Zane respectively, are due to run out at the end of season 7 and it's not looking like they’ll want to sign back on.

Both are said to be looking to move forward in their personal and professional lives with Adams reportedly wanting to spend more time with his family after recently marrying Pretty Little Liars actress Troian Bellisario.

Markle is apparently looking to move away from Toronto where the show is filmed to London in order to be nearer to new boyfriend Prince Harry who she began dating earlier this year.

With their characters having been romantically involved since the show's early seasons, it makes sense for them to depart the show together.

In a previous interview with Deadline, creator Aaron Korsch teased that this could even be after a long-awaited wedding. 

Adams and Markle would be the second and third major cast members to leave Suits after original cast member Gina Torres was written out last year.

She has since returned for a number of guest appearances and is reportedly set to head-up her own as yet unnamed spin-off series.

Viewers can enjoy Suits on Netflix now.
