Sophia Bush is leaving NBC’s “Chicago P.D.” after four seasons, according to Deadline. She is the second key “Chicago P.D.” player to recently leave, as co-creator/showrunner Matt Olmstead left in March.
“I hear Bush is leaving on her own accord,” Nellie Andreeva wrote in her article. “I hear there is a possibility for Bush to return for a guest-starring arc to wrap her character’s story. I hear the show is mulling bringing in a new prominent female cast member though it also may stick with its remaining cast.”
The news comes as a shock to the One Chicago fan-base, despite a possible exit being set up for the actress in the recent season four finale. Her character, Detective Erin Lindsay, was offered a job with the FBI in New York and she was on the verge of accepting said offer. The episode ended with a cliffhanger, with Lindsay standing on a bridge, ignoring Jay (Jesse Lee Soffer)’s call.
