For a Season 10 Episode of Chicago P.D, Jesse Lee Soffer Will Direct.
If you are familiar with contemporary police procedurals, there is a good possibility that you have heard of the show “Chicago P.D.,” which was created by Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead. The show has been a success for NBC almost from the moment it made its debut on the network’s airways in 2014, and its popularity shows no signs of abating as we go further into the 2020s.
After all, the One Chicago series as a whole continues to enjoy huge popularity, and the people working in the 21st District of the Chicago Police Department still have a great deal of more narrative material to provide. However, not all of the people who have participated in the programme in the past will continue to do so in the future.
Jesse Lee Soffer’s recent exit from “Chicago P.D.” is widely considered to be the most shocking of all the cast members’ departures from the show. On October 5, 2022, his farewell episode, which was named “A Good Man,” made its debut. In this episode, he played Detective Jay Halstead for the very last time. He had played this part since the very first season of the show.
He decides to leave the force in order to pursue a career in the United States Army after becoming disillusioned with the shadowy aspects of the Intelligence Unit. However, despite the fact that Soffer may have completed his role as Jay Halstead in front of the camera, it has come to light that his time spent working on “Chicago P.D.” is by no means coming to an end.
According to recent reports, Jesse Lee Soffer will apparently contribute to an upcoming episode of “Chicago P.D.” Season 10 by directing a portion of the episode.
The Upcoming Chicago P.d. Episode Serves as Soffer’s Directorial Debut
According to a rumour from Variety published on the 20th of October 2022, Jesse Lee Soffer will helm a future episode of “Chicago P.D.” It has been reported that the 16th episode of this season, which will also be the 10th episode of Season 10, will premiere in 2023, although further information regarding this has not yet been disclosed.
This revelation comes only a few short weeks after he wrapped up his historic stay in front of the camera playing the role of Jay Halstead. Although he has been in 189 episodes of the show, this will be his debut as a director of an episode. In point of fact, as can be seen on his page on IMDb, this is Soffer’s very first time directing anything; up until this point in his career, he has spent his whole career performing in various roles.
The official Twitter feed of Wolf Entertainment posted the news that Jesse Lee Soffer would be returning to the universe of “Chicago P.D.” in order to spread the word about his comeback. To say that fans are looking forward to seeing what Soffer has in store for his next episode would be an understatement.
“WAIT WHAAAT? “THIS IS THE BEST NEWS I HAVE HEARD ALL DAY,” tweeted @yergerss, and @CarseDaniel responded by saying, “THIS IS AWESOME. HE IS GOING TO BE AN AMAZING DIRECTOR.”” At the same time, some fans are a little bit frustrated that Soffer hasn’t come back in an on-screen position to have Halstead reunite with the woman he loves, Hailey Upton. One such fan is @super fili2002 (Tracy Spiridakos).
It’s possible that Jesse Lee Soffer will reprise his role as Jay Halstead at some point in the future, but in the meantime, we’ll have the opportunity to watch him flex his directing muscles on “Chicago P.D.” Season 10.
