Main cast[edit]

  • Jason Beghe as Sergeant Henry "Hank" Voight, the enigmatic head of the Chicago P.D.'s Intelligence Unit. Despite his brusque, 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. He is first introduced in Chicago Fire as a dirty cop who clashes with CFD Lt. 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 who was killed in the line of duty. Voight is a widower; his wife, Camille, died. His son, Justin, is now serving in the Army.
  • Jon Seda as Detective Antonio Dawson, an Intelligence Unit detective who previously arrested Voight for harassment and now works 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. His younger sister is paramedic-turned-firefighter Gabriela Dawson.
  • Sophia Bush as Detective Erin Lindsay, a tough Intelligence Unit detective and former CI whom Voight took under his wing when she was a drug-addicted teenager. Because of this, she is closer with Voight than the other members of the unit. She has a half-brother, Teddy Courtney, who was taken by a pedophilia ring at age thirteen and was found turning tricks in New York City 10 years later.
  • Jesse Lee Soffer as Detective Jay Halstead, a brash Intelligence Unit detective who is Detective Lindsay's partner. A former Army Ranger, he is confident in his abilities and sometimes comes across as cocky. His younger brother is Dr. Will Halstead, who is a main character in Chicago Med.
  • 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 mom 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. Now she is partnered with Sean Roman. Burgess is shot in "Called in Dead" and spends the next episode recovering. She was engaged to Adam Ruzek.
  • LaRoyce Hawkins as Detective Kevin Atwater, a uniformed patrol officer who was Burgess' old partner until he was promoted to join 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."
  • Amy Morton as Desk 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 Det. Dawson. She twice passed the detective's exam. Sergeant Platt is also a recurring character on Chicago Fire as she is the wife of CFD firefighter Randy "Mouch" McHolland.
  • Brian Geraghty as Officer Sean Roman (Seasons 2—3), 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.
  • Elias Koteas as Detective Alvin Olinsky, a veteran undercover officer and a friend of Voight's who previously worked alongside 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 8 confirmed kills in the line of duty.

Recurring cast[edit]

  • Samuel Caleb Hunt as Craig "Mouse" Gerwitz, the new tech and surveillance expert for the Intelligence Unit. He was in the same Army unit as Jay.
  • Stella Maeve as Nadia Decotis, an 18-year-old former escort and addict whom Lindsay tries and succeeds in helping. She later becomes the Intelligence Unit's civilian administrative aide and was studying to be a police officer.

Production[edit]

On March 27, 2013, it was reported that NBC was considering plans for a spin-off of Chicago Fire. Deadline.com 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.[8][9]

On May 10, 2013, NBC picked up the show for the 2013–14 United States network television schedule.[10] On May 12, 2013, the show was announced as an unscheduled midseason replacement.[11]

On October 18, 2013, NBC announced that it would premiere on January 8, 2014, at 10:00 p.m. EST, after Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.[12]

The series is filmed entirely in Chicago. The exterior of the station house is the Old Maxwell Street Police Station (943 West Maxwell Street) and is the same location that was used on the series Hill Street Blues.[13][14] It is located about half a mile from the firehouse location of Chicago Fire at 1360 S. Blue Island Ave.[15]

Casting[edit]

Tania Raymonde was cast in the planned series as a police officer named Nicole. Kelly Blatz was also cast as a young but seasoned Officer Elam.[16] The new characters were introduced in the penultimate episode of Chicago Fire's first season, which aired on May 15, 2013.[10] Scott Eastwood was set to portray Officer Jim Barnes in the Chicago Fire season finale and the proposed spin-off. Eastwood also co-starred with Tania Raymonde in Texas Chainsaw 3D.[17] Law & Order: SVU's Melissa Sagemiller would portray Detective Willhite, a member of the Chicago P.D. Intelligence Unit.[18] Other cast members include Jason Beghe as the Intelligence team Sergeant Hank Voight and Jon Seda as Detective Antonio Dawson.[1] LaRoyce Hawkins was the only Chicago area actor originally cast in May.[19]

As the show went into pre-production, the cast began to change. On June 13, 2013, it was announced that Melissa Sagemiller would no longer be a part of the show and Jesse Lee Soffer officially joined the cast as a series regular. His character was introduced in the second season of Chicago Fire.[20] On August 23, 2013, Patrick Flueger and One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush joined the cast as Officer Adam Ruzek and Detective Erin Lindsay respectively.[21] Marina Squerciati joined the cast on August 28, 2013.[22] On August 30, Elias Koteas became a regular.[23] Archie Kao was announced as a regular on September 27, 2013.[24]

On October 21, 2013, Stella Maeve was cast in a recurring role as Nadia, a pretty 18-year-old escort who is addicted to heroin and goes through a very difficult withdrawal.[25] Sydney Tamiia Poitier will guest star in five episodes as a detective, who will eventually crossover on to Chicago Fire.[26] On December 20, 2013, it was announced that both Eastwood and Raymonde had departed the series over creative differences.[27]

Reviews[edit]

Since its premiere, 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 ratings.[48] 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."[49] 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."[49] Other critics, however, expressed their disappointment in the police drama, such as Robert Bianco of USA Today: "When did Wolf's work, which used to show some grace and wit, become this ugly, plodding and crass?"[49]
