In the season premiere, Intelligence is in pursuit of Derek Keyes (guest star Bokeem Woodbine), number one on Chicago's Most Wanted list and heroin kingpin. Meanwhile, Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) tries to get through to Lindsay (Sophia Bush) as her downward spiral continues after her three-week absence from the unit. At District, Olinsky (Elias Koteas) opens up to Platt (Amy Morton) about a secret from his past. Roman (Brian Geraghty) expresses his concerns to Burgess (Marina Squerciati) about what she's getting into by marrying Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger). Jason Beghe, Jon Seda and LaRoyce Hawkins also star. Yuri Sardarov, Markie Post, Nick Gehlfuss and Samuel Hunt guest star.
At the center of “Chicago P.D.” is Detective Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), who is at ground zero against the war on crime in Chicago. He will do ANYTHING to bring criminals to justice.
From multiple Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf and the team behind the hit series “Chicago Fire,” ‘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.
Hand-picked as the head of the Unit is Voight, who has assembled a team of diverse detectives who share his passion, and commitment to keep the city safe. They include: Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) who is more level-headed and “by the book” than his counterpart; Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), a brash young detective who previously saw active military duty in the Middle East; Halstead’s partner Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush), a former “bad girl” who turned her life around with Voight’s help; Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas), an experienced undercover detective and confidante for Voight; and Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger), a quick-witted cadet plucked from the police academy as Olinsky’s partner.
The Unit includes a new member in the form of Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins), a charismatic patrolman who recently was brought upstairs. Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty) assist with the unit but on a daily basis they work the streets as uniform patrol officers often working with intelligence whenever necessary. Desk Sgt. Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) runs a tight precinct with tough love although she lets her softer more vulnerable side shine through from time to time.
