Tracy Spiridakos Chicago PD Cast

TVLine Items: Revolution Star to P.D., Ballers Adds Guttenberg and More

Revolution star is coming to light up Chicago P.D.

Tracy Spiridakos — who now recurs on MacGyver — will guest-star on the NBC drama in a multi-episode arc.

She’ll play Det. Hailey Upton, a member of the robbery homicide unit. “Always clocking in overtime, she got her detective shield meritoriously on the heels of an undercover assignment that is still shrouded in secrecy,” according to the official character description, “and as a result has had to prove herself to those who thought she didn’t earn the detective promotion.” She’ll clash with Voight at first, but he’ll eventually come to want her in Intelligence.

She’ll first appear in Episode 21, which is slated to air in early May.

Spiridakos’ TV work also includes Being Human and Bates Motel.

    Danny Boyle is planning to do 5 seasons of trust (each season covering a decade of the Getty family). How is that a “limited series”.

    Who leaves PD to make room for Tracy?

    I need Milauna Jackson to do an arc on CPD and eventually end up on CJ permanently. Her reunion with Philip Winchester is the most wanted in my house.
