Dick Wolf fans know there’s few things better than One Chicago Wednesdays on NBC, which includes Chicago P.D., which returned for its tenth season in September.

After a shocking turn of events at the end of season 9, the team found themselves shaken and that factored into how the story played out in season 10. 

The three shows of the Chicago franchise  — Chicago P.D., Chicago Med and Chicago Fire —   were given three-season pickups in February 2020; season 10 marks the end of that deal so fans can expect news about the show’s future at some point this season. 

Here’s everything we know about Chicago P.D. season 10.

As part of One Chicago Wednesdays on NBC, Chicago P.D. will air following Chicago Med at 8 pm ET/PT and Chicago Fire at 9 pm ET/PT. 

Who is in the Chicago P.D. season 10 cast? 

One of the biggest pieces of casting news for Chicago P.D. season 10 came at the end of August when Deadline confirmed that the tenth season is the end of the road for Jesse Lee Soffer's Detective Jay Halstead. Soffer will likely depart the show at some point in the fall; at this point how his character will be written off the show is unclear. 

In a statement, Soffer thanked fans for their dedication: "I want to thank the incredible fans for their unwavering support during the past 10 years and want to express my deepest gratitude to Dick Wolf and everyone at Wolf Entertainment, Peter Jankowski, Matt Olmstead, Derek Haas, Michael Brandt, Rick Eid, Gwen Sigan, NBC, Universal Television, my fellow castmates and our incredible crew. To create this hour drama week after week has been a labor of love by everyone who touches the show. I will always be proud of my time as Det. Jay Halstead."

This is where things stood with the cast at the end of season 9 so we can assume for now that all of these actors are returning in season 10: 

  •  Jason Beghe  as Sergeant Henry "Hank" Voight 
  •  Lisseth Chavez as Officer Vanessa Rojas
  •  Patrick John Flueger as Officer Adam Ruzek 
  •  LaRoyce Hawkins as Officer Kevin Atwater
  •  Jesse Lee Soffer as Detective Jay Halstead 
  •  Amy Morton as Desk Sergeant Trudy Platt
  •  Tracy Spiridakos as Detective Hailey Upton 
  •  Marina Squerciati as Officer Kim Burgess

Benjamin Levy Aguilar was added to the cast in as a series regular for season 10 in late July. 

What is the Chicago P.D. plot?

Plot details for Chicago P.D. season 10 are being kept under wraps for now, but here is the basic premise for the show, per NBC:

"Chicago P.D. is a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department's elite Intelligence Unit combatting the city's most heinous offenses - organized crime, drug trafficking, high-profile murders and beyond.

"At the center of Chicago P.D. is Sgt. Hank Voight, who is at ground zero against the war on crime in Chicago. He will do almost anything to bring criminals to justice. In the past year, Voight has fought to turn over a new leaf, carefully navigating the situation at the department with a new boss who has helped him and the unit adapt to a new reality."
