'Chicago P.D.': Jon Seda Talks "Bittersweet" Season 5 Return, 'Chicago Justice' Cancelation

Written by 

Jon Seda is back at Chicago P.D. for season five, but a lot has changed at the NBC cop drama since he last reported for duty at the 21st District.

The actor left midway through season four to join the new spinoff Chicago Justice as a series regular.

For Seda, it meant getting to help launch the latest part of Dick Wolf's impressive NBC scripted slate, and also only have to split screen time among five series regulars rather than nine.

However, Justice was canceled in late May after just 13 episodes and now Seda returns to a very different P.D. Co-creator and longtime showrunner Matt Olmstead has since exited for a lucrative deal at ABC Studios, replaced by Rick Eid (Law & Order: SVU), and series regular Sophia Bush, who played the beloved Det. Erin Lindsay, has departed after four seasons, subsequently replaced by former Revolution star Tracy Spiridakos following a two-episode arc at the end of last season.

"It feels like I never really left yet it still feels new at the same time," Seda tells The Hollywood Reporter of the season five refresh. "It's like going back to an old team but it's new, so it's exciting."

Ahead of the show's return, Seda spoke with THR about Justice's early demise, why he was almost ready to "move on" from Antonio and a possible rekindled romance with Brett (Kara Killmer).
