Chicago P.D. “A War Zone” airs on NBC Thursday October 26 at 10pm.
Intelligence is tasked with tracking down the dealers of fentanyl – a drug that has been linked to multiple overdoses around the city. As they investigate possible sources, the team uncovers a series of dealers in a college smuggling ring. Meanwhile, Tay (guest star Li Jun Li) and Burgess (Marina Squerciati) come across a bloodied child who exposes a dark and twisted secret about his home life with his parents. Additionally, Mouse (guest star Samuel Hunt) causes tension as he looks to reenlist in the army, and Platt (Amy Morton) tells Tay (guest star Li Jun Li) that she has been reassigned to her original post.
At the center of Chicago P.D. is Det. Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), who is at ground zero against the war on crime in Chicago. He will do anything to bring criminals to justice.
From multiple Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf and the team behind the hit series “Chicago Fire,” ‘Chicago P.D.” is a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department’s elite Intelligence Unit, combatting the city’s most heinous offenses — organized crime, drug trafficking, high-profile murders and beyond.
Hand-picked as the head of the unit is Voight, who has assembled a team of diverse detectives who share his passion and commitment to keep the city safe. They include Det. Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda), who is more level-headed and “by the book” than his counterpart; Det. Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), a brash young cop who previously saw active military duty in Afghanistan; Halstead’s partner Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush), a former “bad girl” who turned her life around with Voight’s help; Det. Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas), an experienced undercover detective and confidante for Voight; Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger), a quick-witted cadet plucked from the police academy as Olinsky’s partner; and Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins), a charismatic patrolman who recently was brought upstairs.
Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and her new partner, Julie Tay (Li Jun Li), assist with the unit but on a daily basis work the streets as uniform patrol officers often cooperating with intelligence whenever necessary. Desk Sgt. Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) runs a tight precinct with tough love, although she lets her softer more vulnerable side shine through from time to time.
In addition to Wolf, executive producers include Matt Olmstead (“Chicago Fire,” “Breakout Kings,” “Prison Break”), Peter Jankowski (“Law & Order” branded series, “Chicago Fire,”), Michael Brandt and Derek Haas (“Chicago Fire,” “3:10 to Yuma”), Mark Tinker (“NYPD Blue”) and Arthur Forney (“Law & Order: SVU,” “Chicago Fire).
