Sophia Bush Leaving ‘Chicago P.D.’
After 4 seasons, Sophia Bush is turning in her gun and badge.
The actress, who plays the role of Detective Erin Lindsay is exiting the NBC cop drama.
I hear Bush is leaving on her own accord. A possible exit for the actress was hinted in the recent Season 4 finale of Chicago P.D, which saw her character, Detective Erin Lindsay, on the verge of accepting a job with the FBI in New York. The episode ended with a cliffhanger, with Lindsay standing on a bridge, ignoring Jay (Jesse Lee Soffer)’s call.
I hear there is a possibility for Bush to return for a guest-starring arc to wrap her character’s story. I hear the show is mulling bringing in a new prominent female cast member though it also may stick with its remaining cast. NBC and reps for Bush declined comment.
Bush’s departure is a loss for the entire Chicago/SVU franchise, which has the characters cross over between shows. She has appeared in 22 episodes total of the other three Chicago series and Law & Order SVU.
Detective Lindsay will definitely be missed.
