According to sources, both actors quietly departed the series over the summer for creative reasons. They follow the June exits of Melissa Sagemiller (Law & Order: SVU) and Kelly Blatz (Glory Daze).

Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill), Patrick Flueger (The 4400) and Jesse Lee Soffer (Mob Doctor) were added to the cast shortly thereafter.

Chicago PD premieres Wednesday, Jan. 8 at 10/9c.
