‘Suits’ Gina Torres lands new pilot – does this change season 6 prospects?

Suits co-star Gina Torres is set for the title role in ABC drama pilot The Death Of Eva Sofia Valdez. The casting won’t impact Torres’ status on the popular USA drama for the time being. Suits, which just ended its fifth season, has been renewed for Season 6 to launch this summer. I’ve learned that Torres will remain a regular through season 6, fulfilling her six-year contract, with her character likely getting phased out.

The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez follows its central character, a Cuban immigrant who built herself into a successful entrepreneur and now is a vocal advocate for immigrant rights in Miami. But Eva’s ambition can flare out of control, affecting the well being of her family, and there’s also the matter of (perhaps literal) ghosts from her past knowing exactly how she scraped her way to the top.
