Jessica Pearson, it’s your time to shine.
The USA Network has handed a series order to its as-yet-untitled Suits spinoff starring Gina Torres, the network announced this week.
The forthcoming offshoot follows Jessica “as she adjusts to the dirty world of Chicago politics,” the official logline reads.
“It was an extraordinary pleasure working with Gina on Suits for six years,” Korsh said in a statement. “Beyond her undeniable talent, she is an incredible partner and collaborator, and I always hoped we would work together again. I am sincerely grateful to USA and UCP for giving Dan Arkin, my producing partners at Hypnotic and me the opportunity to continue Jessica Pearson’s journey in this new series that will encapsulate all that our fans love about her and Suits — but with its own distinct story that will be unique to the franchise.”
Torres will return to Suits for the season 7 finale in April.
