Brace yourself for a goodbye: "Chicago P.D." is reportedly losing one of its own.
Sophia Bush has decided to leave the show, Deadline reports. Neither Bush nor NBC has made an official announcement yet, but the publication's sources indicate that her departure is in the works. There have been hints -- her character, Erin Lindsay, was last seen considering a job offer at the FBI in New York, after all.
Bush may close out her time on the drama series with a guest-starring arc, according to Deadline's intel. That would give her a chance to tie up Lindsay's loose ends and make her departure easier on fans. It will still be a blow, though. Lindsay has been a central character since "Chicago P.D." premiered in 2014 and she has also appeared in cross-over episodes of "Chicago Fire," "Chicago Med," and "Law & Order: SVU."
With Bush being one the only female series regulars on "P.D.", NBC is reportedly trying to decide whether to introduce a new character or simply work with the remaining cast. However they handle it, Bush will be missed. Let's hope the show leaves open the door for possible guest appearances in the future.
