According to TV Line, Universal Cable Productions is in early development on a Suits spinoff, which would revolve around the character of Jessica Pearson, played by Gina Torres in the first six seasons of the legal drama.
The site reports that development is in the earliest stages, and USA Network is yet to be pitched the potential show. A spokesperson for Universal declined to comment, stating that: “The Suits team is currently focused on the remaining episodes of Season 6 and what’s next for the characters when they return in Season 7.”
Torres exited Suits in the midseason finale of season six, with the actress wanting to be closer to her family in Los Angeles (the show shoots in Toronto). Since then, she has received a number of pilot offers, which has reportedly prompted Universal to move quickly in an effort to lock her down for the potential spinoff.
