Chicago P.D. is an American police drama television series. The executive producer is Dick Wolf and producers are Rick Eid, Derek Haas, and Michael Brandt. The eighth season is highly on demand by desperately waiting viewers.
Chicago P.D. Season 7 had an abrupt ending which left several questions in the air. These questions include:
- What’s next for Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins)?
- Who will most probably find himself going up against other CPD police officers next season?
As you recall, the end moments of “Silence of the Night” found Atwater flanked by a sea of flashing blue lights including an ominous message from Doyle’s friends (Mickey O’Sullivan). Also, the racist cop who Atwater reported to authorities for racially profiling a black man. Later, instigating the shootout that resulted in his own death.
Producers have decided not to bring back newest cast member Lisseth Chavez after only one season as Officer Vanessa Rojas. As of now, her replacement has not been named. Although, multiple new people are expected to be introduced in season 9 with an interesting storyline.
