After an impressive nine-season run, 'Suits' is finally coming to an end.
THR confirmed last night that the legal drama series is ending just as a spinoff series, starring Gina Torres as Jessica Pearson, is taking over from 'Suits'. While the series has had its ups and downs, it's now become synonymous with one particular actor - Meghan Markle.
Markle played Rachel Zane, a paralegal and later associate in Specter Litt, the law firm that 'Suits' centered on. Obviously, Markle left the series when she married Prince Harry and so to did Patrick J. Adams, who played Mike Ross, the legal whizzkid who was taken under the wing of Harvey Specter, played by Gabriel Macht.
That was basically the crux of the whole series, Mike Ross and Harvey Specter doing the law stuff together - so when one of them bails, you've got to wonder how long a TV series can last? Two seasons, as it turns out, as Mike Ross and Rachel Zane both left Specter / Litt and the series behind in its seventh season.
There's no word yet on when the spinoff series - titled 'Pearson' - is headed to screens, but if it's anything of the caliber of fellow legal-drama spinoff 'The Good Fight', it's going to be pretty decent.
