Meanwhile, with Suits now canceled, Torres is starting out on a new adventure as the star of the show’s spin-off Pearson.

It centers around her Suits character Jessica Pearson who has relocated to Chicago to work in the mayor’s office. 

She told UsWeekly that she’s thrilled to have the chance to headline her own show and develop her character.

‘As an actor, to live with a character for so long and have really the most minimal access to her interior life as we all did, as I did on Suits, was quite frustrating towards the end,’ she explained to the publication in an interview posted Wednesday.

‘What’s so beautiful about being able to revisit Jessica in this setting and in this way is, it’s a walk through all those doors that just weren’t open while we were doing Suits.’

She went on: ‘We will get to meet her family…..There’s a story behind the eyes. There’s a reason why she does the things that she does and there are consequences to the things that she does – good and bad.’

Pearson premieres Wednesday, July 17, on USA Network.
