Sophia Bush Departs ‘Chicago P.D.’ After Four Seasons

“Chicago P.D.” star Sophia Bush is leaving the NBC series after four seasons.

Bush played Det. Erin Lindsay on the Dick Wolf procedural, who it was hinted at the end of Season 4 would be leaving Chicago to take a job with the FBI. Bush has been with “P.D.” since Season 1, and has appeared on episodes of “Chicago Med,” “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago Justice,” and “Law & Order: SVU.”

“P.D.” is one of the three “Chicago” shows currently airing on NBC, with the network recently cancelling freshman series “Chicago Justice.” All three of the other shows have been renewed. They have been dependable ratings performers for NBC at the 9 and 10 p.m. hours. “Med” season two averaged a 1.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.6 million viewers. “P.D.” season four averaged a 1.4 and 6.6 million. “Fire” season five averaged a 1.5 and 7.1 million viewers.

News of the series renewals was accompanied by the announcement that “Law & Order: SVU” showrunner Rick Eid would leave that show to assume showrunning duties on fellow Wolf Films series “P.D.” Eid joined “SVU” as a writer and producer at the beginning of Season 18. He had previously worked on “Law & Order” and “Law & Order: Trial by Jury.” Back in March, “P.D.” showrunner and co-creator Matt Olmstead stepped down for an overall deal with ABC Studios.
