“Chicago PD” Creator Shares That We Will Learn More About Halstead Exit Soon

Chicago pd Jesse

NBC’s “Chicago PD” Season 10 is currently on hiatus and gearing up to air the second half of the season and the second half is going to give the fans more information about Halstead’s absence!

The creator of the show spoke with TVINSIDER and they shared a bit of information about what to look forward to. They also shared that Jesse will not appear on the current season again.


With Soffer returning to direct later this season, might we see him onscreen again as well?

They shared:

“We’ll definitely hear about what’s going on, for sure, and tell stories about that absence,” showrunner Gwen Sigan tells TV Insider. “There are no plans to see him onscreen, but we’re very excited that he is coming back and directing one. I think he’s gonna really enjoy it. I think it will be a nice opportunity for him.”

Well looks like there’s no more Halstead anytime soon other than Jesse directing the episodes. Such a bummer.

What are your thoughts?

At the center of “Chicago P.D.” is Det. Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), who is at ground zero against the war on crime in Chicago. He will do anything to bring criminals to justice. From multiple Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf and the team behind the hit series “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.” is a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department’s elite Intelligence Unit, combating the city’s most heinous offenses – organized crime, drug trafficking, high-profile murders and beyond. Hand-picked as the head of the unit is Voight, who has assembled a team of diverse detectives who share his passion, and commitment to keep the city safe. They include Det. Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda), who is more level-headed and “by the book” than his counterpart; Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), a brash young detective who previously saw active military duty in the Middle East; Halstead’s partner Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush), a former “bad girl” who turned her life around with Voight’s help; Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas), an experienced undercover detective and confidante for Voight; and Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger), a quick-witted cadet plucked from the police academy as Olinsky’s partner. The unit also includes two rising young uniform cops – Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins), a charismatic patrolman who has an active social life, and Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati), a patrol officer who strives to one day become a part of the elite Intelligence Unit. Sheldon Jin (Archie Kao) is the tech geek in charge of surveillance and tech ops.
