Suitswas losing season one of his main actresses due to geographical problems: Gina Torres. However, the one that embodies Jessica Pearson – also quickly passing in season 7 currently being broadcast – obviously did not want to say goodbye to the show. Indeed, a rumor recently evoked the development of a spin-off centered on his character and his new life in Chicago.
A potential spin-off of well-engaged Suits
Today, the fire is definitely green for this project (at least for the pilot) since we learn that the last episode of season 7 of Suits coming early 2018, Will serve as "backdoor driver" for the spin-off. This episode will thus serve as a conclusion to season 7 of the mother series and potential start-up for the derived show if the sauce comes to take side audiences and critics.
The final finale of Season 7 will feature Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman), Donna Paulsen Sarah Rafferty) and Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) with their old friend Jessica Pearson as she adapts to her new life in the Windy City. Forced to enter the dirty world of politics in Chicago, Pearson will have to rely on his legal mind and valiant relationships with Pearson Specter Litt to navigate these unknown waters.
A series turned towards the political
The show should therefore focus more on politics than on justice. It remains to be seen whether the actor DB Woodside ( Lucifer ) who incarnates the companion of Jessica will be of the party. This pilot will be produced and scripted by Aaron Korsh, the creator of Suits while Anton Cropper will take care of the realization.
