The Dick Wolf 'One Chicago' universe returned in the US for new seasons of all three series – PD, Med and Fire – earlier this year, but now UK fans are getting the chance to catch up, with the new seasons finally arriving on Sky Witness and NOW.


The 11th season of Chicago PD, the police drama in the One Chicago universe, will see the departure of one of its main stars, Tracy Spiridakos, but she will still be featured in the season's earlier episodes as Detective Hailey Upton Halstead.

Her departure comes after former her co-star Jesse Lee Soffer, who played Hailey's husband Detective Jay Halstead, bid farewell to the series back in October 2022.

Chicago PD has been running since 2014 and has proven popular ever since, following the officers in the Intelligence Unit of the 21st District of the Chicago police department.

It seems that's not about to change either, as the series has already been renewed for a 12th season.

When will Chicago PD season 11 air?

Chicago PD was renewed for an 11th season back in April 2023, but filming was delayed due to the actors’ and writers’ strikes.

Chicago PD then premiered in the US on Wednesday 17th January 2024, at 10pm Eastern Time Zone on NBC, while it is just now debuting in the UK on Sky Witness and NOW, with the first episode airing at 10pm on Friday 5th April 2024.

Of course, the big news going into season 11 is that Tracy Spiridakos will be exiting the series as Hailey Upton Halstead, but there's been no word yet as to when exactly that departure will come in the series.

Upton will be struggling with the departure of her husband Detective Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) who resigned from the force in season 10 to return to the army, so it is unlikely he’ll also be seen in the new season.

One character's life that hangs in the balance going into the new season is also Patrick Flueger's Adam Ruzek, after that shock season 10 finale saw his fate hanging in the balance.

The cast of Chicago PD that we'd expect to be returning for season 11 is as follows:

  • Jason Beghe as Detective Sergeant Hank Voight
  • LaRoyce Hawkins as Kevin Atwater
  • Marina Squerciati as Kim Burgess
  • Benjamin Levy Aguilar as Dante Torres
  • Amy Morton as Trudy Platt
  • Patrick John Flueger as Adam Ruzek
  • Tracy Spiridakos as Hailey Upton Halstead

Chicago PD season 11 plot: What will happen?

The finale of season 10 continued the investigation into white supremacist Richard Beck, and led to Adam Ruzek – who had been determined to protect Beck’s daughter Sam and grandson Callum – being betrayed and shot by Callum.

While we last saw Ruzek being taken to Chicago Med in an unknown condition, photos from the set of Ruzek in a hospital bed – presumably from the next season – would indicate he survives.

That’s good news, as one of the other plot lines waiting to be resolved is Ruzek’s relationship with Kim Burgess. They were engaged, then broke up and dated other people, but rekindled their romance in season 10 and could potentially (finally!) walk down the aisle in the new season.

However, the Beck storyline could mean more trouble for the couple before they get their happy ending. In the season 10 finale, Richard Beck is killed by the team as they try to capture him, but there’s always the possibility that young grandson Callum, who clearly worshipped his granddad, could seek revenge and be a potential threat in the future.

We do know that the new series is set to open with plenty of drama with the premiere episode, entitled Unpacking, seeing Upton tasked with shadowing a crisis prevention team, where she finds her “approach to policing at odds with the team’s mental health clinician,” according to the episode’s synopsis. The case will bring out Upton’s “personal struggles,” with Voight helping her through it.

Is there a Chicago PD season 11 trailer?

There isn’t a solo Chicago PD season 11 trailer but there is a One Chicago trailer, which gives us a glimpse of a struggling Ruzek post-shooting and some of the other beloved PD characters amid shots of Chicago Fire and Med.
