NBC’s “Chicago PD” energy seems off during Season 10 and many believe it’s because of the departure of Jesse Lee Soffer!
Soffer starred in 189 episodes of NBC’s police procedural, portraying Det. Jay Halstead. In August, he confirmed that the 10th season would be his last,appearing in the first three episodes. The character was written off the show during the Oct. 3 episode, when Jay decided to resign from Intelligence, say goodbye to his wife (played by Tracy Spiridakos) and take an army job in Bolivia.
Although Soffer is returning to the show to direct, there’s no news on if he’ll ever return to the show as Halstead.
There’s actually rumors going around that Halstead and Upton will get divorced.
Showrunner Gwen Sigan has kept the future of the couple under wraps.
A Reddit user shared:
“Showrunner Gwen Sigan confirms that Jay Halstead and Hailey Upton will break up in light of Jesse Lee Soffer’s impending exit on Chicago PD Season 10.”
This is just a rumor! Gwen didn’t share news and there’s no information about how the relationship will turn out in the future but we personally could see it happening if Jesse Lee Soffer has no hope to return in the acting role.
