Season 1
Pearson

Critics Consensus

Though Pearson trades the juicy intrigue of Suits for straightforward political drama, it works thanks to Gina Torres' commanding performance.

Critic Reviews for Pearson Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (4)

Whether viewers take to Pearson or not, Jessica Pearson is a symbol of endurance anyone can find comfort in, but black and brown women in particular.

Even this plot, however, comes off as cold as steel, since we learn everything about it from dialogue alone. Pearson is all talk, little action.

Jul 18, 2019 | Full Review…

While there are several familiar elements from Pearson's predecessor, you'll be disappointed if you expect an extension of Suits. But the show is better for it.

Jul 30, 2019 | Full Review…

"Pearson" sometimes resembles a watered-down version of "The Good Wife"/"The Good Fight." Fans of "Suits" may still want to give "Pearson" a try but no one can blame them if they choose not to stick with this series.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

STREAM IT if you're a Suits fanatic, but SKIP IT if you're not.

Jul 19, 2019 | Full Review…

Pearson turns out to be a worthy successor to Suits, one that is more in keeping with where USA Network is headed.

Jul 18, 2019 | Full Review…

I won't oversell Pearson's grittiness. This is still a big, glossy show with a side of soap opera. But I'm going to keep watching to see if it finds another gear. If it does, it will be very good summer TV indeed.

Darker, edgier Suits spinoff has cursing, innuendo.

Aug 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

What's so appealing about Pearson is how this powerhouse attorney has shifted to the political sphere in a brand new city with strangers and limited power.

Jul 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Overall, the stakes are higher on Pearson than they ever were on Suits, but, ironically, the series is still much more of a slow burn than the flagship show.

Jul 17, 2019 | Rating: 75/100 | Full Review…

For fans of Suits, the change in tone that comes with Pearson will no doubt be jarring, but it offers a more substantial role for [Gina] Torres in a more fleshed-out version of Jessica.

Jul 17, 2019 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

The show feels like it's still finding its footing in the first few episodes, but once it does, it soars.

Audience Reviews for Pearson: Season 1

    Really enjoyed this underrated Suits spinoff and I'm sad to see it go. The first season definitely gave Suits a run for its money.
  • Sep 26, 2019
    Being a fan of Gina Torres, I really loved the first season of Pearson and desperately look forward to season 2! I loved the in-depth look into Jessica's personal life as well as her role being the mayor's 'closer.' Ten episodes went to quickly and I WANT MORE!!!
  • Sep 26, 2019
    Huge fan of the Jessica Pearson character from Suits and was super excited to see a spin-off featuring this strong female lead! Not disappointed in the slightest, I like that the show is grittier and filmed in that 'hard edge' city filter... and absolutely delighted that Jessica's wardrobe is just as outstanding and drool worthy as ever!

    Show is progressing slow, side characters are poorly developed and I can't link them to the main cast, it's like two separate shows. Pearson become more soup opera, that is disappointing. Firstly Jessica is an image of strong woman but by the end of the season it's like she's desperate lying player who's cannot be trust so why should we?

    Love this show. Good writing, good story lines.
  • Sep 21, 2019
    This show is very well done, the story line and its relation to the show suits....truly gets chicago politics and corruption down to the T...excited for the 2nd season.
  • Sep 18, 2019
    Unexpectedly enjoyable spinoff
  • Sep 08, 2019
    I like it! I hope there is a season 2, I can see the slow build of season 1 and I hope if there a another season the pace can be faster and the stories more intriguing
  • Sep 08, 2019
    Gina Torres is brilliant and the character is awesome but the show is so dull. I watch each week for the lead actress but it's hard work. Better scripts please!

    Really enjoying the premise.
