We’ve seen a few OG cast members leave Chicago PD over the years. One of those was Jon Seda’s exit. Could he return in Chicago PD Season 11?

Like so many other TV shows, Chicago PD has seen changes to the cast over the years. Jon Seda initially left Chicago PD to join the legal spin-off Chicago Justice. When that was surprisingly canceled, he went back to PD for a bit, but he didn’t stay for too long.

The exit wasn’t fully Seda’s choice. This was a creative one, and not something that fans liked. However, he wasn’t without a show for too long, landing a role in La Brea, another NBC series.

As we wait for the new season of Chicago PD, we look at the chances of characters returning to the series. Is there a chance that we’ll see Antonio Dawson back?

Could Jon Seda return in Chicago PD Season 11?

We knew that Dawson had a drug habit but was sober. However, he relapsed and he endedup resigning off-screen to go into rehab. His sister, Gabriela Dawson, shared that he had moved to Puerto Rico to help with the humanitarian efforts there while also remaining sober.

This does open the door for Dawson to return, even if it’s just for one episode so that we can see how he is doing. The benefit of a character leaving without dying is that they can step in should the story call for it.

However, this is unlikely. Seda has a series regular role on La Brea. This makes it somewhat difficult to come into another show for an episode or two. It would mean a need to make the schedules work. It would only happen if this was something that he really wanted to do.

Of course, the current strike action also causes problems. PD is going to have a much shorter season than originally planned. We’ll be lucky to get 13 episodes to the season at this rate.
