Three actors are exiting a popular NBC drama franchise. Deadline reports that after seven years on the “Chicago” shows — “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.” and “Chicago Justice” — “Chicago P.D.” star Jon Seda is headed out, while “Chicago Med” co-stars Colin Donnell and Norma Kuhling are also exiting as series regulars.
“As is always the case with the Dick Wolf TV universe, they could return for guest appearances,” Deadline notes. “All three ‘Chicago’ series have been renewed for next season.”
Deadline adds: “According to sources, the cast departures stem from creative reasons related to the characters’ story evolution.”
The report also notes: “Seda, who plays Detective Antonio Dawson, was one of the original stars of ‘Chicago P.D.’ He started off as a recurring on the mothership ‘Chicago Fire’ before he and Jason Beghe were spun off to anchor spinoff ‘Chicago P.D.’ as the leads.”
Seda responded to news of his exit on his Twitter account — you can see his tweet below.
