Chicago PD Season 9: What Will Happen?
Season 9 of the show will address the unsolved mysteries of the previous season. Also, the fans will see some new plot additions. We will witness the expert cops of the Intelligence Unit working on new cases. Firstly, the premiere episode, titled “Closure,” will see Kim Burgess struggle to stay alive while the team tries to find her abductors. Last season ended up with Burgess getting shot. However, it was not revealed if she survived getting shot twice in the stomach.
NBC also released an official synopsis for the ninth season. As per the synopsis, a PD informant ends up getting killed. The team tries to find the killer but ends up unfolding a shocking truth. Season 9 will also witness Voight and Ruzek work on a strategy to help Burgess.
Previously, we also saw Voight torture and assault a suspect. The situation turned worst when Voight had no choice but to kill the suspect when the two wrestled to control the gun. Ruzek gets involved in the situation when he helps Voight in burning the suspect’s body. So, the premiere episode will see the two face consequences of their actions. Additionally, the fans will see Halstead’s answer to Upton’s marriage proposal during the first episode.
Chicago PD Season 9: Cast Details
Luckily for the fans, Marina Squerciati will return in Season 9 as Kim Burgess. All the original cast members will be seen in the upcoming season. The upcoming season will have Jason Beghe, Jesse Lee Soffer, Patrick John Flueger, and Amy Morton.
Also, Tracy Spiridakos will be joining the cast. The fans speculated that Kim Burgess would not return for Season 9. However, the synopsis confirms her appearance next season. In fact, it will be interesting to see if Kim Burgess survives.
Will Lisseth Chavez Return?
The fans have been puzzled about Lisseth Chavez having not seen her since season 7. Chavez was cast as a series regular to play Vanessa Rojas. Moreover, she made her first appearance on the show in the second episode of Season 7. After that, she appeared regularly through the season after being recruited by Voight to the Intelligence unit. However, she was not seen in season 8, and her character did not receive a proper send-off either.
The fans were excited to know if Chavez’s character reprises in the ninth season, even if it meant a guest, to give rest her character a rest. However, her return is improbable as she’s a series regular in The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow. Currently, the series is filming for the seventh season in Canada. So, Lisseth Chavez will not return for Season 9.
