Chicago Justice - Chicago PD's Jon Seda Moving to Spinoff as a Series Regular

EXCLUSIVE: Antonio Dawson is on the move. Chicago PD star Jon Seda, who plays Intelligence Unit detective Dawson, will be leaving the series to join the latest spinoff in the Chicago franchise, the upcoming Chicago Justice. On the legal series, Seda will reprise his character who will now be an investigator for the DA office. Dawson will be partnered with fellow investigator Lori Nagle, played by Joelle Carter.

In the planted Chicago Justice spinoff episode of Chicago PD, Nagle was partnered with investigator Daren Okada, played by newcomer Ryan-James Hatanaka. With Seda’s Dawson taking over the role, Hatanaka is leaving.

I hear it was Chicago boss Dick Wolf’s idea to have Dawson move to Justice. It was a creative decision based on the natural trajectory of the character who had been hitting a wall on his intelligence beat and, as a single father, had been looking for a more stable, steady job.

The exact timing of Seda’s transition from PD to Justice is TBD. He is still on the cop drama where his character will eventually depart for his new gig. On Chicago Justice, Seda also joins stars Philip Winchester and Carl Weathers.
