Seda portrayed Det. Antonio Dawson up until Season 4 of “Chicago PD,” when his character left for a job as lead investigator of the State’s Attorney’s Office on the spinoff series “Chicago Justice.” However, “Chicago Justice” was canceled by NBC after just one season.
“It’s a pleasure to have Jon back on ‘Chicago P.D.,'” executive producer Dick Wolf said. “We have been working together for more than 20 years and I hope there are many more to come.” Seda previously appeared on Wolf’s “Law & Order” in 1997, and guest starred on “Law & Order: SVU” as Dawson in 2016.
“Justice” was one of four “Chicago” shows produced by Wolf, along with “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago Med,” and “PD.” All of the other three shows were renewed, as was “Law & Order: SVU.” This fall, NBC will air the first installment of the new Wolf-produced anthology series “Law & Order True Crime,” with Season 1 focusing on the case of the infamous Menendez brothers.
“Justice” debuted to solid ratings back March, opening with a 1.7 rating and 8.7 million viewers. It ended its first season with a live-plus-same day average per episode of a 1.1 and 6.1 million viewers, making it the lowest-rated of the four “Chicago” shows.
