PlotEdit

A spin-off of Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. focuses on the fictional 21st District, which houses patrol officers and the department's elite Intelligence Unit, led by Detective Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe). The first three seasons and the first half of season four focuses on both the patrol and Intelligence officers, and shifts to focus on the Intelligence Unit from the second half of season four on, after Detective Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) and Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) advance to the Intelligence Unit.

CastEdit

MainEdit

  • Jason Beghe as Detective Sergeant Henry "Hank" Voight, the enigmatic and often mercurial chief of the Chicago P.D.'s Intelligence Unit. Despite his brutal, tough exterior and take-no-prisoners approach to police work, he is loyal to the cops and detectives serving under him and highly “dedicated” to the victims of the crimes his unit investigates to the point of committing human rights violations and not respecting the law. He is first introduced in Chicago Fire as a dirty cop who clashes with CFD Lieutenant Matthew Casey after Voight's son Justin causes an accident in which a teenager is paralyzed, and Casey, who was first on scene, had intended to testify that Justin was DUI. He was arrested by Det. Antonio Dawson for trying to have Casey silenced by force, but was later released from prison and reinstated to the police force by Internal Affairs. As a result, many of Casey's colleagues disliked him and Casey's superior Chief Boden has a love-hate working relationship with him. It is eventually revealed in the Chicago Fire episode "Let Her Go" that his dirty cop alter ego was part of an undercover operation to catch criminals and other dirty cops. Prior to taking command of Intelligence, Voight worked in the Gang Unit. His father Richard was a former CPD officer who was killed in the line of duty. Voight is a widower; his wife, Camille, died of cancer some years prior. His son, Justin, served in the Army and was killed in the last episode of season 3 while trying to help a friend. Hank took an interest in Erin Lindsay at 14 and raised her as his daughter.
  • Jon Seda as Senior Detective Antonio Dawson (seasons 1–6), an Intelligence Unit detective who previously arrested Voight for harassment and has since worked alongside him. Unlike Voight, he has limits on how far he will go to get criminals off the streets, as shown by the fact that he asked Halstead to stop Voight from killing anyone while on the hunt for Pulpo, as he did not want it on his conscience. He and his ex-wife Laura have two children: Diego and Eva. He is the older brother of Chicago Fire character Gabriela "Gabby" Dawson. In season 4, he is offered a job at the State's Attorney's Office as Lead Investigator, which he accepts. After becoming disillusioned with the job, he returns to the unit in the first episode of season 5. In season 6, Antonio struggles with recovering from a shoulder injury and dependency on the oxycodone he is taking for the pain. After a dealer he owes kidnaps, beats, and rapes his daughter, Antonio, high on oxy, kills him in revenge. Though Voight and Ruzek manage to cover up the incident as self-defense, and Antonio successfully recovers in rehab, mayor-hopeful Superintendent Brian Kelton later gets the case re-opened in order to take down the Intelligence Unit, and in the season finale, Antonio relapses after Ruzek is arrested after taking the blame for everything to protect him. In the season 7 premiere, it is revealed that Voight found Antonio and checked him into an off-the-books rehab clinic to get him clean again while also protecting his career. It was revealed several episodes later that Antonio resigned and moved to Puerto Rico to spend more time with his family.
  • Sophia Bush as Detective Erin Lindsay (seasons 1–4),[4] a tough Intelligence Unit detective and former CI whom Voight took under his wing when she was a juvenile delinquent. Because of this, she is closer to Voight than the other members of the unit. She has a half-brother, Teddy Courtney, who was taken by a pedophile ring at age thirteen and was found turning tricks in New York City 10 years later. She was in a relationship with her partner Jay Halstead from seasons 2 to 4. Near the end of the fourth season, Lindsay is accused of assault after she sticks her gun down a pedophile's throat in the interrogation room; facing possible dismissal from the police force, she accepts a job offer at the FBI in New York and leaves Chicago.
  • Jesse Lee Soffer as Senior Detective Jay Halstead, a brash Intelligence Unit detective who was Detective Lindsay's partner. A former Army Ranger, he is confident in his abilities and sometimes comes across as cocky. He also suffers from posttraumatic stress disorder, shown progressively during Season 5, later seeking therapy for it. He is the older[5] brother of Chicago Med character Dr. Will Halstead. He was in a relationship with his partner Erin Lindsay from season 2 until she transfers to the FBI in New York at the end of season 4.
  • Patrick John Flueger as Officer Adam Ruzek, a younger police officer recruited straight out of the academy by Olinsky to do undercover work. He is often portrayed as an overeager amateur who dives head-first into a situation without thinking. His parents are separated and he split time between his father "Disco Bob" Ruzek (Jack Coleman), a longtime patrol officer with the 26th District, who lives in Beverly, and his mother in Canaryville. He was engaged to fellow police officer Kim Burgess.
  • Marina Squerciati as Officer Kim Burgess, a former flight attendant-turned-uniformed patrol officer who was Atwater's partner. She was then partnered with Sean Roman before his departure. Burgess is shot in "Called in Dead" and spends the next episode recovering. She was engaged to Adam Ruzek; the relationship was later broken off because of commitment issues. She later developed feelings for Roman before he moved to San Diego. In season 4, she is offered a job in Intelligence, which she accepts.
  • LaRoyce Hawkins as Officer Kevin Atwater, a uniformed patrol officer who was Burgess' former partner until he was promoted to the Intelligence Unit.
  • Archie Kao as Detective Sheldon Jin (season 1), a tech and surveillance expert. He was discovered to be a reluctant mole working for Internal Affairs sergeant Edwin Stillwell, who has leverage to make him cooperate. He was found murdered in the first-season finale episode "A Beautiful Friendship".
  • Elias Koteas as Detective Alvin Olinsky (seasons 1–5), a veteran undercover officer and a friend of Voight who previously worked with Voight in the Gang Unit. Before joining the force, Olinsky served in the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team stationed in Vicenza, Italy. Olinsky mentions in "Called in Dead" that he has eight confirmed kills in the line of duty. At the end of the fifth season, Olinsky is arrested for the murder of Kevin Bingham, the man who murdered Voight's son Justin, and is later stabbed to death via a hit in prison while awaiting trial.
  • Amy Morton as Sergeant Trudy Platt (season 2–present; recurring season 1), a sarcastic desk sergeant of District 21, and the immediate superior of the district's patrol officers. Before taking a desk job she was a uniformed patrol officer, and worked with Dawson. She twice passed the detective's exam. Platt is married to Chicago Fire character Randy "Mouch" McHolland.
  • Brian Geraghty as Officer Sean Roman (seasons 2–3; guest season 7[6]), a brash patrol officer who partners with Burgess after transferring to the 2-1 from District 31. He transferred out because of his relationship with Jenn Cassidy (Spencer Grammer), who is now a K-9 officer, to avoid breaking fraternization rules. He has his own private security company on the side. After being wounded in the line of duty, and with the department feeling he would be unable to return to patrol, he resigns and decides to join the San Diego Police Department.
  • Tracy Spiridakos as Detective Hailey Upton (season 5–present; recurring season 4), a tough former robbery-homicide detective and Erin Lindsay's replacement following her departure to New York. Upton gets transferred in the season 7 episode 18, "Lines", to the FBI Field office in New York City to temporarily fill in for an agent undercover. Hailey Upton has a history of dating her colleagues: Garrett Thomas, her sergeant that meritoriously promoted her to detective, Adam Ruzek, and now she's in love with Jay Halstead.

The working title was Chicago Law.[21] Salke has since confirmed that the series was officially in development.[22] The series was a spin-off of Chicago P.D. by introducing Assistant State's Attorney (ASA) characters in the 21st episode of P.D.'s third season.[23] Philip Winchester was the first to be cast.[24] Nazneen Contractor joined the series in March 2016 and the title was changed to Chicago Justice.[25] Rocky alum Carl Weathers played Cook County State's Attorney Mark Jefferies, while Joelle Carter also starred.[26] Lorraine Toussaint reprised her role as defense attorney Shambala Green, who appeared in seven episodes of Law & Order.[27] On May 12, 2016, NBC gave Chicago Justice a series order.[28] On September 28, it was reported that Jon Seda would join the cast and that his character Antonio would become an investigator for the DA's office.[29] The series ran from March 1, to May 14, 2017.[30] In July 2017, it was announced that Seda would rejoin Chicago P.D. full-time.[31][32]

ProductionEdit

On March 27, 2013, it was reported that NBC was considering plans for a spin-off of Chicago Fire. Deadline Hollywood revealed that the proposed spin-off would involve the Chicago Police Department, and would be created and executive produced by Dick Wolf, Derek Haas, Michael Brandt, and Matt Olmstead.[33][34] On May 10, 2013, NBC picked up the show for the 2013–14 United States network television schedule.[35] On May 12, 2013, the show was announced as an unscheduled midseason replacement.[36] The show premiered on January 8, 2014.[37]

It came to light in November 2017 that Bush had left the show because of Beghe's behavior behind the scenes.[38] Bush's claims led NBC to open an investigation into Beghe's behavior.[39] On November 21, 2017, Deadline reported that Beghe was investigated for behavior that was considered overly aggressive and may have been sexual harassment. Beghe released a statement in which he admitted to engaging in aggressive behavior and apologized for it.[40]

On March 13, 2020, Universal Television production of the seventh season was shut down due to the impact of coronavirus pandemic.[46]

ReviewsEdit

Chicago P.D. has received mixed reviews from critics. Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, gives the drama a 50% rating based on 21 reviews, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[80] Rotten Tomatoes gives season 1 a rating of 57% based on reviews from 28 critics.[81]

Ray Rahman of Entertainment Weekly gave the drama a favorable review: "It's hard to imagine the series capturing the compelling, can't-watch-just-one magic that makes the Law & Order franchise so marathonable, but it moves just fast enough to keep you from changing the channel in search of an SVU re-run."[82] Alessandra Stanley of The New York Times also gave the series a positive review when it premiered on January 8: "Chicago P.D. is, in many ways, a throwback to an earlier, male-dominated era of crime shows, yet it carves out room for strong female characters who are good at their jobs and taken seriously by their colleagues."[37] Robert Bianco of USA Today expressed disappointment: "When did Wolf's work, which used to show some grace and wit, become this ugly, plodding and crass?"[83]
