The Suits TV show was a big success for USA Network and ran for many seasons. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the Pearson spin-off series. After a disappointing run, the show has been cancelled so there won’t be a second season in 2020.
A legal and political drama, Pearson stars Gina Torres, Morgan Spector, Bethany Joy Lenz, Simon Kassianides, Eli Goree, Isabel Arraiza, and Chantel Riley, DB Woodside, and Betsy Brandt. The Suits spin-off centers on Jessica Pearson (Torres) who, after being disbarred, left New York City for the rough and tumble world of Chicago politics. Now she serves as the fixer for the Windy City’s working-class Mayor Bobby Novak (Spector), who is up for reelection. Jessica is just trying to reconcile her competitive nature and desire to win with her goal of doing the right thing.
The first season of Pearson averaged a meager 0.10 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 513,000 viewers. Of the nine recent scripted series on USA Network, Pearson ranks last in the demo and in eighth place in viewers (just above Mr. Robot, which ends on November 10th). The 10th and (now) final episode of Pearson aired on September 18th.
