Suits is having a break point right now. One of the major characters is leaving the show. It looks like Pearson, Specter & Litt lost its Pearson.
Gina Torres has been doing a very good job as badass female attorney and senior partner of Pearson, Specter & Litt for five and a half seasons. She appeared in the show for the last time as a series regular during season 6’s summer finale. The door will be open for her to return to the show.
Torres made the following statement about her role in Suits:
“Playing Jessica Pearson has been one of the greatest rides of my career. It isn’t often that an actress gets the opportunity to embody so rich a character. Thanks to [creator] Aaron Korsh’s wonderful writing and his singular vision of Jessica, I believe that together we created a woman who has everything. Real power, wealth, intelligence, intuitive wisdom, humor, unapologetic female sexuality and, arguably, the best wardrobe in all of television.
Because of all these qualities, I have not only been able to entertain Suits fans but, with much pride and awe, I can say I have also inspired quite a few future Jessicas as well as shined a light on real-life Jessica Pearsons who are out in the world at this very moment, owning their place at the head of the table — not unlike our real Queen at USA/Universal Cable Productions, Bonnie Hammer, a force of nature who has been one of Jessica’s biggest fans and supporters, as well as a true blessing in my own life as an example of what grace in power looks like. And that is a glorious thing.”
Torres said her decision was because she needed to spend some itme at home. Suits asctually films in Toronto, Canada. We surely will miss Jessica Pearson but she will be back from time to time, be sure.
