Chicago PD Billy Burke

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

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.

    What does this mean to Mitch (Burke’s carácter on Zoo)

    Great news he’ll be back on tv this fall! He’s a great actor. Can’t wait to see him on the show in new season!

    Has TVLine ever done a “role by role” interview with Burke? He always chooses these off-center characters and projects (his Closer role particularly) that I think he’d be a perfect choice for such a retrospective?

    I wish he could do a Revolution movie wrap-up to replace that comic book wrap-up. Man, did that suck!

    Billy Burke’s character murdered the victim in the Stadium Club with a baseball bat. That is my speculation. But…does he get away?
