Is Alvin Olinsky in Chicago PD season 10?
Who didn’t love Al Olinksy? The character, played by Elias Koteas, was a perfect partner for Voight (Jason Beghe) and an interesting foil for the younger members of the IU. He didn’t always do what was right, but he always did things with the intention of doing right, which made it easy to root for him.

Sadly, Olinksky’s death in season 5 takes him out of consideration when it comes to characters who could return to Chicago PD. He was sent to prison for murder, and promptly stabbed to death while behind bars. Voight continues to bear the grief of his buddy’s death, so it would feel out of sorts to actually see Olinksy return in some capacity.
The impact that his absence has had on the characters is more than enough.
Is Anna Avalos in Chicago PD season 10?
Another character, another tragic ending. Anna Avalos (Carmela Zumbado) played a crucial role in Chicago PD‘s ninth season, and her death during the finale set up the emotional stakes for the IU this year.
Voight feels personally responsible for what happened to her, since he purposely kept information about her past from her, and Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) is racked with regret over having to shoot and kill Anna when she pulled a gun on Voight.
It’s clear that there’s still lots of healing to be done for both characters, and the mishandling of the Anna situation will inform the way Voight and Upton handle cases moving forward. Sadly, Anna’s fate ensures that she won’t be returning to PD in season 10 or any other season, for that matter.
