NBC’s “Chicago P.D.” just lost one of its major and beloved characters and we are so shocked by the news.
The upcoming Season 10 will be the final season for the actor.
He is set to leave the NBC drama this fall. Per Variety.
“I want to thank the incredible fans for their unwavering support during the past 10 years and want to express my deepest gratitude to Dick Wolf and everyone at Wolf Entertainment, Peter Jankowski, Matt Olmstead, Derek Haas, Michael Brandt, Rick Eid, Gwen Sigan, NBC, Universal Television, my fellow castmates and our incredible crew,” Soffer said in a statement. “To create this hour drama week after week has been a labor of love by everyone who touches the show. I will always be proud of my time as Det. Jay Halstead.”
Soffer has portrayed Detective Jay Halstead since the show’s premiere in 2014.
It looks like Benjamin Levy Aguilar, who played patrol officer Dante Torres in the April 13 episode “New Guard,” fill his spot as he was promoted to series regular for Season 10 recently.
So sad. What are your thoughts?
