Exclusive

Chicago P.D. to Investigate Zoo Star Billy Burke in Season 4 Guest Spot

Chicago PD Billy Burke

Billy Burke is stepping up to the plate at his former stomping grounds.

The Revolution alum and current Zoo star will return to NBC with a guest spot on Season 4 of Chicago P.D., playing a legendary retired baseball player, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Burke’s character gets caught up in a murder investigation during Episode 6, titled “Skin in the Game.” And Burke is no stranger to the TV cop game, with recurring roles on TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles and Major Crimes in recent years.

The new season of the Dick Wolf-produced police drama will also welcome Quantico grad Li Jun Li as Burgess’ new partner. (Brian Geraghty, who played Sean Roman, will not be back as a series regular.)

Chicago P.D. returns Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 10/9c on NBC.

Does Burke’s ballplayer character sound like a mere witness… or a cold-blooded killer? Feel free to wildly speculate in the comments.
