Jesse Lee Soffer Returning To Chicago PD

Less than one month after Jay Halstead left Chicago P.D., actor Jesse Lee Soffer is already plotting his return to the NBC procedural, albeit behind the camera.

Soffer will direct Episode 16 of the show’s current 10th season, set to air sometime in 2023, our sister publication Variety reports. This will mark Soffer’s first time as a director.

The actor had been with Chicago P.D. ever since the Dick Wolf series premiered in 2014; he has also crossed over to Chicago Fire and Chicago Med in more than 40 episodes. Soffer’s final episode as a series regular aired on Oct. 5.
