Fans of Chicago P.D. were left stunned after Detective Erin Lindsay departed. Played by Sophia Bush, Detective Lindsay was one of the original characters of the series. The show spun-off of the already popular Chicago Fire and instantly gained the affection of viewers.
After four seasons, however, it was announced that Bush would be leaving the show, leaving fans disappointed and confused.
"Im still trying to get my head around that Sophia won't be back. I understand and get she wanted to leave. I followed her on TV since One Tree Hill & her character's on any of her shows she's front and center. It's not like what Wolf says it won't be noticeable because a new actress comes in. Don't buy it."
"Well, if it was really her choice, maybe i will stick with the show...it cannot possibly be the same without Erin."
"My husband and I were shocked and disappointed when we heard she was leaving. She was awesome in that role."
There was a lot of speculation as to why Bush decided to leave, and things got even more interesting when executive producer, Dick Wolf, said "I don't think it will have any effect at all."
But after someone hinted at Bush's possible firing on Instagram, the actress shot back.
