During the midseason finale of Season 6, Jessica was disbarred after defending Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams). Mike was pretending to be a lawyer and because of Jessica’s choice to defend him, her license in New York was revoked from practicing law. Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) was mad at her disbarment and encouraged Jessica to fight for her license. She didn’t want to and said she would be free of any legal strings attached to her life in New York.
After the midseason finale, Gina Torres exited the show. Talks of a spinoff has been in the works for a while. There were talks that Jessica Pearson was actually going to get killed off the show. The show’s creator Aaron Korsh said, “I’m very glad I didn’t do it.” He said, “I think it would have been an incredibly powerful and moving thing. But the network was like, ‘Please don’t do this,’ and they were right.”
Now that the show has aired, Jessica Pearson’s life is picked back up as she starts over in Chicago. She’s working as a political fixer. She’s currently not disbarred in Illinois which means she could still make a living as a lawyer in Chicago. However, if the series does flop, this will probably be the last of Jessica Pearson as she probably won’t be going back to Suits.
