‘Chicago PD’: Here’s When the Last Episode of 2021 Will Air

by Anna Dunn

Chicago PD is taking after many shows right now and is about to air its final episode of 2021 before going on a Winter Hiatus. The show will take a break at the same time as the other two in the One Chicago franchise. Over the course of the fall, the show has only taken one break over the Thanksgiving Holiday. So we’ve had plenty of episodes this year.

Some worried, due to the length that the Thanksgiving hiatus, that Chicago PD’s last episode of the year was already behind us. But that’s not the case. The show will come back for one more episode on December 8th. The episode will also serve as the fall finale, closing the curtains on the show for 2021.

Both Chicago Med and Chicago Fire are airing holiday episodes that night, but it looks like Chicago PD is going in a different direction than its two sister series.

The episode, titled “A Way Out,” will find Voight and Halstead working together as the FBI Closes in on them. The Roy Walton also reaches a major boiling point. While Voight and Halstead strategize, a new intelligence unit gets called in to solve the murder of a city bus driver gunned down by a passenger in a potential kidnapping attempt.

It definitely doesn’t seem to Christmas-y, but fans are just excited to see the show come back. Besides, if fans want a holiday episode fix, they can tune in to Chicago Med then Chicago Fire before the new Chicago PD episode comes on.

Voight Actor Jason Beghe Explained How He and His ‘Chicago PD’ Character Rub off on Eachother

It’ll be interesting to see Voight and Halstead work together in the upcoming episode. Tensions have really grown between the two. Voight is a dirty cop guilty of multiple murders. But actor Jason Beghe explained how the two have rubbed off on each other.

“Ever since I started playing Hank Voight, I’ve found that I’ve killed a lot more people in my personal life,” he joked in a recent interview with the Pittsburgh Post Gazette “I slapped a guy at 7-Eleven when he gave me the wrong change yesterday.”

But he mentioned that in reality, he has to have a close relationship with the character he plays.

“Honestly, after all this time, it becomes like a close personal relationship,” he said. “And like any good close relationship, I’m sure we learn from and influence each other.”

Just… because it’s Voight… hopefully not too much. Voight’s actions have been at the center of this season of Chicago PD, and will probably be at the center of the storyline for the whole season. Thankfully, if you want to see what happens next for Voigt, there’s still one more episode before the show goes on hiatus.
