Meghan Markle lands new podcast deal months after Spotify deal ended

Meghan Markle has landed a new podcast deal eight months after parting ways with Spotify, Deadline reports.

The Duchess of Sussex, 42, will now be working with Lemonada Media, which was founded in 2019 by Jessica Cordova Kramer and Stephanie Wittels Wachs and is behind “Wiser Than Me with Julia Louis-Dreyfus” and “Hard Feelings with Jennette McCurdy.”

The move will see Markle not only launch a new podcast series but also make available her previous Spotify series, “Archetypes.”

“I’m proud to now be able to share that I am joining the brilliant team at Lemonada to continue my love of podcasting,” the stateside royal gushed in a statement.

“Our plan to re-release Archetypes so that more people can now have access to it, as well as launching a dynamic new podcast are well in the works. I’m so eager to be able to share it soon, and am overjoyed to be joining the Lemonada family.”

Markle’s previous podcast was called “Archetypes.”

The news comes after Markle and her husband, Prince Harry parted ways with Spotify in 2023.

Sources previously told Page Six that the streaming giant parted ways with the duo because the “Suits” alum failed to deliver enough content to warrant their pricey $20 million deal.

Both Spotify and Archewell said in a joint statement that they “mutually agreed to part ways and are proud of the series we made together.”

In it, she interviewed celebs like Paris Hilton and Mindy Kaling. Spotify

“Archetypes” was a series that explored labels placed on women, with Markle interviewing celebs including Mindy Kaling, Margaret Cho, Serena Williams, Paris Hilton and Jenny Slate.

Only 12 episodes streamed before the show was halted.

In an interview last year, the CEO of Spotify seemed to imply that Markle’s show didn’t bring consumers joy.
