Chicago P.D. is an American police procedural drama television series created by Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead as a part of Wolf’s Chicago franchise. The series premiered on NBC as a mid-season replacement on January 8, 2014. The show follows the uniformed patrol officers and the Intelligence Unit of the 21st District of the Chicago Police Department as they pursue the perpetrators of the city’s major street offenses.
On February 27, 2020, NBC renewed the series for an eighth, ninth and tenth season. The eighth season premiered on November 11, 2020.
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 Officer Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins) and Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) advance to the Intelligence Unit.
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. She has great relationships with her CIs and goes to many lengths to protect them. Despite a dark turn in Season 7, she’s mostly a by the book detective.
Jesse Lee Soffer as Detective Jay Halstead, an 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 post traumatic stress disorder, shown progressively during Season 5, later seeking therapy for it. He is the older 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. Overall, he is highly respectful of women, and shows indignation towards men who disrespect any woman.
