‘Suits’ Season 6B News And Updates: Jessica-Less Firm Places Huge Responsibilities On Harvey; Delay Reportedly Caused By Torres’ New ShowBy yasi bilangel, UniversityHerald Reporter
The "Suits" season 6B starts where the mid-season finale episode 10 ended, showing Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) leaving Pearson Specter Litt and transferring the responsibilities to Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht). Executive producer Aaron Korsch considered a few possibilities as to what is in store for Harvey like going back to therapy, seeing his mother or reconnecting with Donna.
The "Suits" season 6B will make an interesting back-half story as the firm deals with the loss of Jessica, who decided to move back to Chicago with her ex, Malone. The "Suits" teaser trailer does not reveal much, but Korsch has dropped a few hints on what fans can expect when the show returns next year.
The "Suits" Season 6B On Harvey's New Responsibilities
Korsch when speaking to TvLine about possible spoilers for the "Suits" season 6B, revealed that they are considering various possibilities on Harvey's character. He might go back to therapy as he grapples with the loss of his mentor, Jessica.
Moreover, Harvey's mother may return in the coming episodes to reveal much of the character's back story although a tweet from Korsch that says "probably" does not offer much information. Harvey may also deepen his relationship with Donna (Sarah Rafferty) when last season finale has shown the pair in a touching moment where they held hands.
Korsch also hinted that there may be a natural tension between Harvey and Louis (Rick Hoffman) in the beginning, but this will soon be resolved in the coming episodes. For now, fans will just have to wait as to how Harvey and the whole Pearson Specter Litt will be without Jessica's quiet strength and leadership.
The "Suits" Season 6B Considers Gina Torres In A Guest Capacity
Though Gina Torres has now moved back to Los Angeles and joined ABC's "The Catch" season 2, Korsch revealed that he is willing to have the actress in a guest capacity, TV Guide has learned. This statement prompted speculations that the "Suits" season 6B may be delayed because production will have to adjust with Torres' schedule in another show.
However, there is no official word to back up this rumor and the logistics seem impossible since the legal dramedy is shot in Toronto. The "Suits" season 6B will return to USA Network on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 9pm.
