The fall television schedule is drawing near. This means that there will be new and returning shows for viewers to watch out for. One of the television shows that is returning for a brand-new season is NBC’s “Chicago Fire” spin-off — “Chicago PD.” Read on to learn more about this story.
The first season of “Chicago PD” left the viewers on the edge of their seats as the final moments of the season left us with Detective Sheldon Jin (Archie Kao) lying on the cold concrete, with both Sergeant Edwin Stillwell (Ian Bohen) and Jin’s boss, Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), confronting each other as the police pulled in to investigate his death.
Prior to this, Jin, who had been reluctantly passing information on Voight to Stillwell, who was from Internal Affairs, left the precinct in a hurry. Before he left, he had called his father to tell him to leave Chicago as soon as possible, and Jin left a flashdrive in a white envelope.
According to TV Fanatic’s interview with one of the show’s creators, Matt Olmstead, the new season will pick up from where season one left off. The team will be investigating Jin’s death, but it will be wrapped up quickly, as it is not the major arc of the story. Olmstead also went on to say that the ramifications behind Jin’s murder will be dealt with in the season, as it is currently unknown whether Voight had anything to do with it. It is also not known if Stillwell had anything to do with it as well.
Olmstead also mentioned that Jin’s murder will divide the team, and Voight is going to try to keep those he trusts closer than ever, such as Officer Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger), who will take Jin’s place in the division.
Furthermore, there will be several small crossovers with its mother show, “Chicago Fire.” Last season, they were able to pull off a big crossover between “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago PD” and a minor crossover during the course of the season. For the second season, it seems like viewers will be seeing the characters of both shows interacting with each other again.
As for Officer Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) will realize that staying in a uniform is just all right and that Intelligence is not the only department in the Chicago Police Department.
And that’s the latest update on what will happen in the second season of “Chicago PD.” For more news and updates, including spoilers and recaps, on “Chicago PD” and other television shows, keep following Movie News Guide (MNG).
