It's time to welcome back the One Chicago TV universe to our screens with the premieres of Chicago PD, Med and Fire all landing on the same day in the US.


The Dick Wolf franchise continues to go from strength to strength with the police spin-off focusing on the patrol officers, detectives and staff who work in the 21st district of the city, and the Intelligence Unit that is based there.

Of course, over the course of its 10 seasons (and now an 11th), characters and actors have come and gone, including Det Dawson (Jon Seda), Erin Lindsay (One Tree Hill’s Sophia Bush), Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas) and Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) – who was the most recent departure during season 10.

But there's further sad news for the main cast, as Hailey Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) will be exiting in season 11 – but it remains unclear how many episodes the actress will be in.

Read on for everything you need to know about the current cast and characters of Chicago PD.

What else has Jason Beghe been in? New Yorker Beghe made his screen debut in the big screen drama Compromising Positions in 1985, and since then has appeared in numerous movies including Thelma & Louise, GI Jane, X-Men: First Class and The X-Files movie (alongside his best friend David Duchovny).

On TV, he guest-starred in episodes of Murder, She Wrote, Quantum Leap, LA Law and NYPD Blue, and had a regular role as a cop in Melrose Place. He first appeared as Hank Voight in Chicago Fire, and his character has also appeared in crossover episodes of Chicago Med and Chicago Justice.

Flueger's first movie role was as aspiring magician – and school pal of Mia – in The Princess Diaries, and he also appeared as baddie Chuck in the 2011 remake of Footloose.

She’s married to partner Jay Halstead – however, Jay resigned from Chicago PD in season 10 to return to the army, and was last seen getting ready to be shipped off to Bolivia for a mission.

It looks like Hailey will continue to deal with the fallout from Jay's decision to leave Chicago and will also leave the show, although what her departing storyline will be remains a mystery for now. We do know, though, that season 11 will see Hailey in a "precarious place" according to showrunner Gwen Sigan.

What else has Tracy Spiridakos been in? Spiridakos is best known for her lead role in the 2012 post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama Revolution, in which she starred as Charlie, one of the survivors of an event 15 years before that caused all electricity to fail permanently.
