Another big change in the Dick Wolf-verse: Deadline has confirmed that Jesse Lee Soffer, who plays Det. Jay Halstead, is leaving NBC’s Chicago P.D.

Soffer, a member of the original cast, is expected to leave the police drama sometime in the fall.

Chicago P.D. first debuted in 2014. It’s about to start its 10th season next month.

“I want to thank the incredible fans for their unwavering support during the past 10 years and want to express my deepest gratitude to Dick Wolf and everyone at Wolf Entertainment

Peter Jankowski, Matt Olmstead, Derek Haas, Michael Brandt, Rick Eid, Gwen Sigan, NBC, Universal Television, my fellow castmates and our incredible crew,”

“To create this hour drama week after week has been a labor of love by everyone who touches the show. I will always be proud of my time as Det. Jay Halstead.”

Giddish is the 2nd actor to leave a Wolf drama in the last week. On Aug. 24, it was revealed that Kelli Giddish would be departing Law & Order: SVU after 12 seasons. She plays Detective Amanda Rollins

Soffer has a big fan base, thanks to the Chicago franchise and his time working on As the World Turns from 2004 to 2010.
