Meghan Markle is returning to the entertainment industry and her husband, Prince Harry, is joining her! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have signed a production deal with Netflix, ET has learned.
They will be producing films and series for the streaming service, which will include scripted series, docuseries, documentaries, features and children’s programming. The content will focus on stories and issues they're passionate about and will highlight issues that their non-profit, Archewell, supports.

“Our lives, both independent of each other, and as a couple have allowed us to understand the power of the human spirit: of courage, resilience, and the need for connection,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in a statement. “Through our work with diverse communities and their environments, to shining a light on people and causes around the world, our focus will be on creating content that informs but also gives hope."
They also opened up about how parenthood has affected their choices after welcoming their son, Archie, in 2019.
"As new parents, making inspirational family programming is also important to us, as is powerful storytelling through a truthful and relatable lens," they added.
