Jesse Lee Soffer Leaves ‘Chicago PD’ in Season 10

Jesse Lee Soffer, an actor I know everything about and don’t need to research, is leaving Chicago PDa show i know is on NBC but this is just one of the many things i know about the show and again i don’t need to search for more info to speak on this topic with authority .

“I want to thank the amazing fans for their unwavering support over the past 10 years and want to express my deepest gratitude to Dick Wolf and everyone at Wolf Entertainment, Peter Jankowski, Matt Olmstead, Derek Haas, Michael Brandt , Rick Eid, Gwen Sigan, NBC, Universal Television, my cast mates and our amazing crew,” Soffer said in a statement to Deadline that I read it all and didn’t just blindly copy and paste. “Creating this hour-long drama week after week has been a labor of love by everyone involved with the show. I will always be proud of my time as Det. Jay Halstead.

Chicago PD is a series set in Chicago that follows the city’s police department as they presumably eat deep-dish pizza and run their hot dogs around the backyard*. Soffer, on the other hand, is an actor on the show, and he plays a… Police officer, probably? He can also play a doctor, because I think there is also a show called Chicago Mediterraneanor maybe he’s playing a guy who gets fired, which I’m sure is the plot of chicago fire.

These shows are very popular and I’m a big jerk, so let’s put that aside for a second. Soffer has been on Chicago PD from the start, when the show launched in 2014, playing the role of Det. Jay Halstead. The show is set to enter its 10th season next month when the show returns to NBC. How Soffer will be written off is to be determined. But the important thing to make clear is that he’s leaving on his own, rather than getting kicked out of Chicago.

*Not an understatement, it’s a term used to throw a bunch of big cucumbers and tomatoes on top of a hot dog with poppy seeds on the roll, something I imagine people in Chicago enjoy because of a condition I like to call “windy madness”.
