Chicago P.D. Fans Aren't Holding Back On Jesse Lee Soffer's Exit
By CAITLIN ALBERS
Season 10 of "Chicago P.D." is less than a month away, and it's going to be a doozy because it was announced that Jesse Lee Soffer, who plays beloved Detective Jay Halstead, will leave the show. The fandom has taken to all forms of social media to express their disappointment at losing Halstead, who has been on the series since its debut in 2014.
The comments section on Twitter blew up, with the actor's fans expressing their disappointment, "This hurts my heart!!!! I love him on this show!!!" one fan wrote. "That's the worst thing that could've happen to me!!! Jay Halstead was my comfort character for 5 years...I don't know how I'm gonna live without him and Upstead," another added.
However, "Chicago P.D." fans think it wasn’t Soffer’s choice to leave, continuing on the "Chicago P.D." subreddit, where the sentiment seemed to lean toward anger over sadness. "YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!!! WHAAAAT?!? This screams as them cutting cost to a long tenured cast member because they've become too expensive," u/ChattGM theorized.
