Want to Watch the Suits Spinoff Pearson? Here's Where You Can Stream It
Some may not know that Jessica Pearson spun off from the show Suits and you can watch the entire series right now.
Can’t get enough of Suits? Well, there’s good news for those who have binge-watched all nine seasons already. There was a short-lived spinoff to the hit USA Network original series that you can watch right now.
While Suits is synonymous with the characters Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), they all operated under the thumb of the first title partner at Pearson Hardman — Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres). After she left the show, Torres led her very own Suits spinoff appropriately titled Pearson.
Here’s everything you need to know as well as how to watch.
When did Pearson premiere?
While Suits was wrapping up its final season in 2019, Pearson premiered as well, offering a look at the continued exploits of Jessica Pearson on July 17 of that year. The character left the show after Season 6 and hadn’t been heard from since until the backdoor pilot in Season 7, Episode 16, "Good-Bye.”
When viewers pick back up with her in Pearson, she’d left the world of New York City law to pursue more worthwhile endeavors. Strangely, that led her to the cutthroat and dirty world of Chicago politics.
Where can I watch Pearson?
Like Suits, there is only one place to watch every single episode of Pearson and that’s on Peacock. It’s the only place to watch all ten episodes of the show, which went off the air right around the time Suits took its final bow as well. While it’s bad news for fans of Jessica Pearson, the good news is that everyone is freed up for any potential reunion that may (or sadly may not) come down the line.
Are Harvey and Mike on the Suits spinoff, Pearson?
Let’s be real with ourselves, the fun of a spinoff is those rare moments where its characters cross over with the flagship show. Jessica Pearson’s time with the top-notch attorneys at Pearson Hardman was obviously very formative in her life and career. So, it makes sense that she’d lean on the powerful friends she made there as a fixer for the local mayor’s fixer in Chicago.
Sadly, Patrick J. Adams had left the world of Suits by the time Pearson premiered. Therefore, Mike Ross never shows up. However, Harvey Specter is always there to pick up the phone when Jessica calls. He does so in an episode where she needs a little help getting someone out of a sticky situation — otherwise known as Harvey’s specialty.
He’s not the only Suits star who shows up in Pearson. Although Mike isn’t around, Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) is another Pearson Hardman attorney who makes a brief appearance in Pearson when the title character gives him a call to utilize some of his expert legal advice and connections.
