Chicago P.D. Star Joins FBI: International For Season 4

Jesse Lee Soffer is headed to FBI: International in a new, unnamed role.

Chicago P.D. star Jesse Lee Sofer is heading to FBI: International. According to TVLine, Sofer, who starred on Chicago P.D. from the NBC series' first season and departed the One Chicago show during Season 10 in October 2022, has been cast as a series regular for CBS' FBI: International's fourth season.  Both series come from creator Dick Wolf.

Sofer making the jump to FBI: International isn't exactly an unheard of move. Another Chicago P.D. star, Tracy Spiridakos, appeared on FBI in 2020 though in Sofer's case the change in series is a little different. One Chicago and CBS' FBI series are part of the same shared universe and Spiridakos' appearance on FBI saw her crossover her Chicago P.D. character, Hailey Upton. Sofer moving to FBI: International will see the actor playing a brand new character that has not been named.

Sofer's move to FBI: International comes after the series lost one of its stars. Lucas Kleintank departed the CBS series in Season 3,noting at the time that his decision to depart was "driven by my unwavering commitment to my family, whose love and well-being are paramount in my life."
