Gina Torres in Suits

USA Network



The "Suits" spinoff starring Gina Torres can now be called by its name.

The series is titled "Pearson," according to Deadline, after Torres's attorney character, Jessica Pearson. It centers on her and her life in Chicago. Previously, the title was reported to be "Second City."

Torres starred on "Suits" from the show's beginning in 2011 till she made her exit in Season 6. Her character moved to Chicago for love, and in real life, the actress reportedly chose to leave to be able to spend more time with her family. Torres has, however, continued to appear on the show on occasion, and her spinoff was introduced as a backdoor pilot in the Season 7 finale.

Creator Aaron Korsch has highlighted how the upcoming series will center on politics and noted that it'll be a dirty business. "Jessica is going to get in a tangle and a tussle with some Chicago politics players," he previously said.

"Pearson" began production in September. It is executive produced by Korsch, Torres, showrunnner Daniel Arkin, and Doug Liman, David Bartis, and Gene Klein of Hypnotic.

So far, a premiere date has not been announced.
