Is Jason Beghe leaving the show in the new season? Here is everything we know so far.
“I just sent a teenager away for murder, and I got a friend laying in the morgue. So I’m just gonna sit right here, and drink this beer.” If you’ll recall this quote from Hank Voight then it is evident why the sudden queries about the character’s departures are trending on social platforms. He is one of the most adored characters who have given so many memorable quotes throughout the seasons.
If you’ve been watching the episodes for a while, then you might have been wondering if there’s any truth to the rumors that he might be leaving the show. For you, we’ve put together a quick rundown of everything you need to know about the current situations surrounding the plotlines in this new season.
Here’s everything we know about whether Hank Voight may or may not be leaving the show.
Chicago P.D. Season 10: Is Hank Voight leaving the show?
Sergeant Henry “Hank” Voight, badge #32419, is a Sergeant in the Chicago Police Department who is currently in command of the 21st District Intelligence Unit. He is portrayed by Jason Beghe. Hank was motivated to become a police officer by his father, and he works arduously to keep his city safe. Everyone, including criminals and higher federal law agents, is aware of his harsh methods. Another thing to keep in mind is that even though some people may disagree with his methods, they respect him when he succeeds.
According to One Chicago Center, the 10th season premiere made the subtext that Voight has always struggled with authority clear by having a conversation with O’Neal. He reluctantly agreed after the chief warned him that he would need to act properly to maintain his position. This conversation may be referenced in the midseason finale, and O’Neal may even use his influence to intimidate Voight into covering up for his son. Voight would never do it, of course, but the Chicago Police Department has a history of success in this area. If it does, O’Neal won’t likely be around for very long.
Additionally, Voight quitting the show is extremely unlikely from a logistical perspective. After the departure of one Jay Halstead, PD is still working to find its footing, and he is a centerpiece character – possibly the centerpiece character. It’s difficult to imagine the show surviving without someone as important as Voight because the idea of losing him would be devastating. We are confident that Voight will continue to stick around and cause trouble for the wrong people because he is essentially the heart of the Chicago P.D.
