Jesse Lee Soffer and Tracy Spiradakos look like they are having a good time back on Chicago P.D. as they’re filming new episodes.

Soffer, who plays Detective Jay Halstead, and Spiradakos, who plays Detective Hailey Upton, get together in this Instagram post from Spiradakos’ account.

Chicago P.D. is coming back to NBC for its ninth season this fall. It’s already been given a green light for a 10th season by the network, but one season at a time, you know. The show, created by Law & Order creator Dick Wolf, takes viewers through the activities of the Chicago Police Department’s District 21.

Now this district is made up of uniformed cops and an Intelligence Unit. Additionally, watching each group work within the confines of the district itself can stir up enough drama.

‘Chicago P.D.’ Star Hawkins Hinted That Division Might Haunt Unit

As last season was winding down, LaRoyce Hawkins, who plays Kevin Atwater on Chicago P.D., said the unit might find itself split into two parts. In other words, he means there’s division within his unit.

Hawkins talked to TVLine about how the upcoming episode could complicate matters.

“I think this episode is a pretty interesting example of the way reform challenges all of our integrities,” Hawkins said. “It challenges everybody’s character a little bit. The team that we love may find themselves divided — some people on one side of progress and other people on the other.”

For Hawkins, he has loyalties to Burgess [Marina Squerciati] and Adam Ruzek [Patrick John Flueger]. Coming up into a new season, Outsiders who watch Chicago P.D. will have to see how everything settles down.

Fans Of Show Were Hopeful It Might Earn An Emmy Nomination

Now fans of Chicago P.D. know that show creator Dick Wolf has quite a track record when it comes to Emmy nominations.

For instance, they were hoping that their favorite show might receive one from the Television Academy.

Alas, it did not happen. Chicago P.D. did not get nominated for TV’s prestigious award, according to an article from onechicagocenter.com.

Chicago P.D. is part of the Chicago franchise of shows under Wolf Entertainment. Above all, it goes along with Chicago Fire and Chicago Med, all shows that were created by Wolf.

Jason Beghe, John Seda, and Sopha Bush star on the show. As we mentioned, Chicago P.D. has sister shows in Chicago Fire and Chicago Med. Those shows also were picked up by NBC. New episodes will premiere in the fall season starting in September.

The first three or four seasons of Chicago P.D. put its focus on the patrol and Intelligence officers on the NBC police show. Obviously, that all changed when Hawkins and Squerciati’s characters moved over to the Intelligence Unit.

In conclusion, expect there to be twists and turns throughout Chicago P.D. this season.
