Why is Jesse Lee Soffer leaving his Chicago PD male or female and Jay Halstead at the start of Chicago PD season 10? We know this is a huge question on the net for the past few weeks.
The first factor for strangers to be aware of is that Sofar's Day Trip has been out for a while, and many are unhappy with the target audience.
Although the Dick Wolf universe is known for its achievement, it has also been marked by the departure of several actors over time.
Christopher Meloni left Law & Order: SVU for years, while Chicago Fire has had several departures and in the past year, FBI: Most Wanted has lost its main man.
We also believe that Kelly Giddish may be leaving SVU sooner or later in Season 24, so there's more to prepare for at this point.
Now, let's look further into why this happens, on the grounds that it is (surprisingly) complicated. The main reason for Sofar's departure appears to be more positive than novelty, as the actor is yet to say whether it turned into his decision to leave. The creators also never said that they lacked evidence to support them.
This happens from time to time with long-running suggestions, especially when linear scores are declining and the network is set to cut fees, unless we find another explanation.
We'll have more leverage if Jesse is out if more come the next day, though for now, our biggest difficulty is that without Jay Halstead, the show is losing its moral compass.
