The former Jack Porter’s police days aren’t over.
Wechsler will play Kenny Rixton, who viewed Voight as a mentor when they both worked on the gang unit. NBC tells TVLine the actor first will show up in Episode 10, “Don’t Read the News,” which is slated to air in early 2017.
In addition to portraying Revenge‘s beleaguered bar-owner-turned-cop Jack, Wechsler’s small-screen career includes stints on The Player, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Without a Trace and Roswell.
Chicago P.D.‘s two-hour fall finale, which also serves as cast member Jon Seda’s final episode before moving to the spinoff Chicago Justice, airs Wednesday at 9/8c on NBC.
