‘Suits’ Star Gina Torres Joins ABC’s ‘The Catch’ for Season 2

SPOILER ALERT: This story contains spoilers regarding the “Suits” Season 6 summer finale, which aired on Wednesday, Sept. 14 on USA Network. 

Gina Torres has joined ABC’s Shondaland series “The Catch” for Season 2, Variety has learned.

Torres’ casting comes just after she exited “Suits” on the show’s summer finale last night. She had been on the long-running USA Network series for five-and-a-half seasons. However, Torres is joining ABC’s “The Catch” in a recurring role, and “Suits” creator Aaron Korsh said in recent interviews there is a possibility the actress can return to his show in guest spots.

Last pilot season, Torres was cast as the lead in ABC’s “The Death of Eva Sofia Valdez,” and though the project was not picked up to series, her “Suits” departure came into discussion at the time of that pilot. Though “Eva Sofia Valdez” didn’t go all the way, the network kept an eye on Torres and found a spot for her with “The Catch” bringing her back into the ABC fold. The actress has been on ABC’s watch for quite some time, having had an arc on “Revenge’s” final season and a guest spot on an episode of “Castle.”

Torres’ character details on “The Catch” are being kept under wraps. She joins previously announced guest star, “Grey’s Anatomy” alum T.R. Knight.

“The Catch,” which returns to ABC midseason, hails from executive producers Allan Heinberg, Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and Julia Anne Robinson.

Torres is repped by Domain, Framework Entertainment and Shreck Rose Depello Adams.
