One Chicago actors have been hugely popular during pilot season. See which Chicago Fire, Chicago PD and Chicago Med names have booked new pilots!
It’s pilot season—the time when actors are being cast as networks shoot the pilots for potential new TV series. And this pilot season, familiar faces from the One Chicago franchise have been in high demand!
A half-dozen performers you’ll recognize from either Chicago Fire or Chicago PD have landed new jobs this pilot season, and there’s still plenty of time for that number to increase. Check out who’s moving on and where you’ll (hopefully) be able to find them this fall in our slideshow!
We’ll update this article as necessary as more casting news becomes available. Remember that these are just pilots, so for most of these shows, we won’t know if you’ll be able to see them until networks formally announce their schedules around May.
But here’s who’s been cast in new TV shows so far:
One Chicago fans were elated when former Chicago PD star Brian Geraghty agreed to reprise his role of Sean Roman for the first time since leaving the series in 2016. Geraghty returned as Roman in the recent crossover event between Chicago PD and Chicago Fire, as Roman searched for his missing sister and ultimately murdered the drug dealer who killed her.
That plot twist wound up being a little bit ironic, as shortly after the crossover aired, Geraghty was cast in a series regular role in David E. Kelley’s (Big Little Lies, Mr. Mercedes) new crime drama The Big Sky. His character is a truck driver who has kidnapped two women in Montana, and they may not be his only victims.
Geraghty joins Kylie Bunbury (Law & Order: SVU), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings), and Ryan Phillippe (Secrets & Lies) in the drama, which has a straight-to-series order at ABC, meaning that One Chicago viewers will definitely get to see it next TV season. No word yet, though, on if this is a limited series or not. Certainly, one would expect Brian Geraghty’s character wouldn’t get away for very long.
