Bush, who is coming off of CBS’ quickly-cancelled Partners, will portray Erin Lindsay, a member of the CPD investigative team who has an unexpected past.

Flueger, meanwhile, will play Kyle Ruzek, a hotheaded rookie plucked by Voight (Jason Beghe) from the Academy for dangerous, delicate undercover work for the Intelligence unit.

Fun fact: Bush and Flueger co-starred in NBC’s ill-fated Hatfields & McCoys pilot.

Chicago PD is slated to bow at midseason.

    Woohoo! Here’s hoping it’s a hit, because I would love to have Sophia back on my tv screen weekly!

    • dude says:

      I would too and I’m happy for her but I really hope this gets cancelled after one season because she deserves to be the star of her own series. She’s too good for an ensemble procedural.

  2. Danica says:

    Hope this one works out for Sophia!

  3. Carm says:

    I will watch it to see Sophia!

  4. Adam says:

    I was on the fence at first but now I HAVE to watch it. Go Sophia!

  5. Phyllis Bergst says:

    Well if it is on NBC, probably won’t last a whole season,

  6. B says:

    I’ve been debating watch Chicago Fire for so long and even though I probably don’t need to, I am now.

  7. mrwalker1 says:

    they both co-starred in that Hatfields & McCoy’s pilot with Jesse Lee Sofer as well!

  8. Fabe says:

    Thank goodness! I was sort of thinking I would check out the show, but now I definitely am! I love Sophia Bush! I hope the show is a hit!

  9. Casting Sophia Bush is a perfect choice. Let’s hope if her new role is going to bounce back after the huge disappointment of her last series Partners on CBS.

  10. Cherry says:

    Seems like a very different role for Sophia! I hope this is her new big thing

  11. another reason to watch this series, I already had on my radar because I like Chicago Fire and the backdoor episode was great, and now with Sophia on board, I want to see now

  12. Jj says:

    I’ll definitely watch since she’s on! Sophia Bush is awesome. Sadly, even she couldn’t save Partners. Oh, well. On to better things!

  13. Joey says:

    Happy Sophia will be back on tv next year.

  14. DarkseidNow says:

    Glad to see Sophia back on TV. Also pleased to see such unanimous talkback support for a very talented actress.

  15. Alisa Neely says:

    i’m sorry, but this is only going to be CF’s 2nd season…..i honestly think, doing a spin-off of it already seems like rushing it…..and i really LIKE “chicago fire”.

  16. Kristina says:

    Rats, I was hoping to watch her in her next project. No way will I be tuning in to this, not even for Sophia bush. Glad she has a new show though!

  17. Michelle says:

    I love this! Chicago Fire is one of my favs, as is Sophia!

  18. Lauren says:

    I was planning on checking this out because I love Tania Raymonde and have been enjoying Chicago Fire (although I’m a bit behind, need to catch up before it comes back). But Sophia being involved cements it, I will try any show she’s on. Even Partners, which I could only stomach for one episode.

  19. Shane Vendrell says:

    Sophia Bush playing a crime-fighting cop in the Windy City? Definitely a must watch. Cannot wait!!!

  20. Sara says:

    Can’t wait to have more Sophia on my TV! Miss her since OTH finished.

  21. Mary Ann says:

    I don’t understand how they expect us to accept Voight as a series lead in Chicago PD, when he was completely evil on Chicago Fire.

  22. Marylen says:

    I really love sophia bush, wish to see her in movies cos she s funny
