Chicago PD fans are overwhelmed with the return of Benjamin Lavy

Chicago PD is a United States police procedural action drama television series on NBC, created by Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead. It is the second installment in Wolf’s Wolf Entertainment’s Chicago franchise. The program debuted on NBC as a midseason replacement on January 8, 2014.

Chicago PD fans, stay tuned for fresh episodes this week.

Benjamin Levy Aguilar, who plays Dante Torres, a.k.a. Ocean, shared a few stills from the forthcoming episode on his Instagram page to mark the return of the NBC crime drama.

The Dick Wolf drama and its sibling programs, Chicago Fire and Chicago Med, will return for the second half of its tenth season on January 4, 2023.

Other images in the revolving gallery show the intelligence unit investigating a crime scene and Torres working with Adam Ruzek (Patrick Flueger) as they conceal themselves behind a car while drawing their weapons.

The Intelligence team is working a run of horrific home invasion robberies with Detective Borkowski, an old acquaintance of Ruzek’s, in the episode titled “This Job.”

Things get challenging for Torres when it becomes apparent that Borkowski has a very different approach to policing, according to the synopsis.

As the show wraps up its multi-episode arc centered on Sean O’Neal (Jefferson White), the son of CPD Chief Patrick O’Neal (Michael Gaston). He became the ringleader of a human trafficking organization while working as a human rights advocate. Viewers will get to see Det. Hailey Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) deals with the case’s fallout. According to the NBC blog, White will appear later this season as a special guest to wrap up the story.

The Chicago PD Series’ Other casts list (2023)

Over the years, Chicago PD has experienced its fair share of cast changes, and season 10 has been no exception.

There were no significant cast changes before the show’s return for season 10 because it was assumed that every important cast member would return. The situation swiftly altered after it became known that Jesse Lee Soffer, who had played Detective Jay Halstead for ten seasons, was leaving the show.

Soffer’s resignation created a sizable gap in the program’s cast that still needs to be filled, but Soffer’s departure created space for a fresh face to join the fray.
