After Suits took the streaming world by storm this summer, its spinoff series Pearson has been added to Peacock.

The streamer made the announcement Thursday, saying the platform is the “only place fans can stream the entire Suits franchise.”

Pearson starred Gina Torres as powerful attorney Jessica Pearson as she started a new life in Chicago. After getting disbarred in New York, Jessica entered the dirty world of Chicago politics as a fixer for Mayor Bobby Novak (Morgan Spector).

The political drama also starred Bethany Joy Lenz, Simon Kassianides, Eli Goree, Isabel Arraiza, and Chantel Riley.

Torres announced she was leaving Suits in 2016 after season 6, before launching her own series.

Pearson premiered in July 2019 on USA Network, and ran for one 10-episode season before it was canceled.

The series was executive produced by Suits creator Aaron Korsh, along with Torres and showrunner Daniel Arkin.

Suits aired on USA Network from June 2011 to September 2019, running for nine seasons.

The legal drama starred Gabriel Macht (“Harvey Specter”), Gina Torres (“Jessica Pearson”), Patrick J. Adams (“Mike Ross”), Rick Hoffman (“Louis Litt”), and Sarah Rafferty (“Donna Paulsen”). Meghan Markle played “Rachel Zane.” Dulé Hill, Wendell Pierce, Katherine Heigl, and Amanda Schull joined the cast in later seasons.

The show centered on brilliant college dropout Mike Ross (Adams), who was on the run from a drug deal gone bad when he stumbled into a job at a law firm alongside some of New York City’s best lawyers.

Suits began streaming on Netflix and Peacock in June, and held onto the top spot on the streaming chart for several weeks.

Seasons 1-9 of Suits are currently on Peacock. Seasons 1-8 are available on Netflix.

Per Nielsen, the series is bringing in younger viewers in streaming than it did during its original TV run.

For now, Pearson is not available on Netflix.
