USA Network has released a teaser featuring Suits Season 9 and the highly anticipated premiere of Pearson for Summer 2019. Are viewers read for the back-to-back combo between Gina Torres, Gabriel Macht, and Katherine Heigl?
As we previously mentioned, the spinoff will follow Jessica Pearson (Torres) as she adjusts to her new life in the Windy City. Jessica finds herself being forced to enter the dirty world of Chicago politics. Pearson must then rely on her legal wits and valiant relationships from Pearson Specter Litt to navigate this unknown territory.
SPOILERS! Make sure you catch up on our recaps! Here are 5 reasons why we’re excited for Pearson and Suits:
5) That Ending!
During the Season 8 finale, after being cleared of all wrongdoing in the ethics hearing, Harvey (Macht) raced on over to Donna’s apartment. Harvey and Donna (Sarah Rafferty) had their hands all over each other, stripping their clothes off, as they passionately make love. Did this top the sexy romp Mike (Adams) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) had in the library?
4) Forced Retirement!
Not only did that happen, Robert Zane (Wendall Pierce) paid the price for taking on Daniel Hardman (David Costabile) and took one for the team, losing his license in the aftermath. How will Samantha Wheeler (Heigl) deal with losing her mentor in the upcoming ninth and final season?
3) Things To Come!
In an interview with Deadline, Suits showrunner, Aaron Korsh, teased what will happen in the final season, “Keep in mind, they will be trying to make a go of it in the context of the firm having taken a big reputational hit. For the second time in about as many years, a managing partner has been disbarred. This is a serious thing for everyone to deal with, but keep in mind also that Samantha lost her mentor basically because of Harvey and Donna.”
2) The Pearson Cast!
From what we know so far, Chantel Riley will play Angela Cook, the certified Nursing Assistant and Jessica’s cousin. Isabel Arraiza will play Yoli Castillo, Jessica’s passionate assistant. Eli Goree plays as Derrick Mayes, Mayor Bobby Golec’s young press secretary and a former journalist. Prosecutor Keri Allen, the unofficial right hand to the mayor, will be played by Joy Lenz.
1) The Backdoor Pilot!
During the seventh season finale, Jessica Pearson (Torres) set foot in Chicago to reunite with her long-lost family. She was also taking on a crooked politician and a shady real estate developer. Can she survive the nastiness of this backstabbing political world?
Pearson and the final season of Suits will air on USA Network Summer 2019.
