Not only did the artist speak about his departure from the cast of Chicago PD, but also some of his colleagues. Actress Marina Squerciati, who plays police officer Kim Burgess in the series, argued that she cried a lot while watching Halstead’s farewell episode. “Jesse I love you man,” she wrote on her official Twitter account.
Michael Brandt, who serves as one of the show’s executive producers, on the same social network, congratulated Soffer on his journey and said he was excited to watch his new projects. Finally, although he is not acting in the same series, Nick Gehlfuss, who plays doctor Will in Chicago Medbetter known as Halstead’s brother, recorded a video for his colleague.
“I will never forget how kind, patient and helpful you were to me. Back then, you made things a lot easier because I was scared,” Gehlfuss recalled.
Chicago PD: know how was the end of Halstead
Who watched the third episode of the 10th season of Chicago PD noted that Halstead’s departure was motivated by his own internal dilemmas. Fortunately, the character did not die. However, because of his conduct in stabbing a suspect, he decided to leave the police department, handing his gun and badge to Chief Patrick O’Neal (Michael Gaston).
Despite this, “A Good Man” also showed that Halstead had accepted a job in the army, working directly in the anti-drug division, in which he would go on to track hidden cartels in South American countries, especially Bolivia.
Somehow, the character’s ending was quite fitting and nothing prevents him from returning in the future for cameos, right?
