*Gina Torres had no idea that her show “Suits” was so popular among a particular wing of the White House.
The USA series begins its fourth season on March 6, with the actress returning as Jessica Pearson of New York City law firm Pearson Harden. The show centers around two lawyers, Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) and Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), who somehow finagled their way into Pearson’s firm without having college degrees.
Torres, married to actor Laurence Fishburne, says season 4 will go “deeper and deeper and deeper into this world of deceit.”
“And also, the relationships get deeper,” Torres revealed at USA’s TCA panel. “So it’s not just, ‘Oh, here’s this smart dude that’s pretending to be a lawyer.’ Now we have we’re invested in all of these people deeply. We share losses with them. We share wins with them. We have a great deal of respect for them. So the stakes continue to get higher.”
Speaking of higher, Torres says she was surprised to find out two years ago that fans of her show exist in the highest level of government (by way of marriage).
Season 4 of “Suits” begins Thursday, March 6 at 9 p.m. on USA. Watch a promo below.
