Chicago P.D. Season 10 Plot: What to Expect?
When it comes to the plot details, the showrunners are keeping it under wraps as there’s been no word from them. But it’s possible that season 10 would continue from where it was left off as the last season concluded on a suspenseful note. It seems like Voight and the squad will have to deal with the outcome of Anna’s demise and how her death would affect Voight both professionally and personally.
In an interview with EW, star LaRoyce Hawkins discussed Voight’s arc in season 10 and what this could imply for Voight in the upcoming season.
“I understand when lines have to be crossed sometimes,” Hawkins explained. “I also understand that certain lines can’t continue to be crossed forever.”
He resumed, “I’ve seen Voight’s growth, especially when it comes to certain situations, when it comes to the physicality of his approach, and now I’m watching a very mental and spiritual breakdown that I have to support.
“Win, lose, or draw, Voight is still somebody that I admire and respect. And I’m looking forward to unpacking more reasons why Atwater still admires and respects Voight,” Hawkins concluded.
