Chicago PD has given us tons of memorable characters over the years. The IU has been home to those who have given their lives in the line of duty, have become disillusioned by the corruption of the Windy City, or simply decided that police work wasn’t for them.
The franchise has done a good job of keeping characters in the mix, or at least keeping the door open if a given character ever wanted to return. We’ve seen examples like Chief O’Neal (Michael Gaston) take on a pivotal role in season 10, after having made a brief appearance throughout the rest of the show.
That being said, there are a select few who won’t be coming back anytime soon. Characters who, through virtue of their situation or the dynamics that their respective actors have with the show, are guaranteed to keep their distance from PD for the foreseeable future.
Here’s a quick rundown of four beloved characters who won’t be appearing on season 10 of Chicago PD.
Is Erin Lindsay in Chicago PD season 10?
Erin Lindsay is a unique case among Chicago PD characters. She was one of the show’s biggest characters during its initial run, and she’s still alive and well on the East Coast, meaning she could technically return for a cameo if the writers ever decided to make it happen.
The reason Lindsay won’t be returning for season 11, however, is the strained relationship that actress Sophia Bush has with some of the cast and crew. Bush has been forthright about the time she spent on the show, and how she often felt uncomfortable during shoots.
Given that the feelings between both camps have not changed since Bush’s departure, it’s safe to assume that the character of Lindsay will remain safely offscreen.
