'Chicago P.D.' Fans Are Convinced Voight's Time Is Almost Up
After Voight confronts Anna at the end of 'Chicago P.D.' Season 9, it led some fans to wonder if it was the first step to Voight leaving the show.
Viewers first met Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) in Chicago Fire, where he butted heads with Lieutenant Casey (Jesse Spencer), who wanted to bring charges on Voight's son for a drunk driving accident that resulted in the other driver being paralyzed. Perhaps it was the first clue that Voight sometimes sees himself as above the law.
Now, he has done the same thing in Chicago P.D. And his role in covering up a murder has caused fans to wonder if Voight is leaving Chicago P.D.
At the end of Season 9, Voight tried to prevent Anna from hurting more people, but in a panic she shot him in the shoulder.
He was fine, but Upton, in an attempt to protect Voight, ended up shooting her. She ended up not surviving the encounter, which has many fans convinced Voight is also leaving.
So, is Voight leaving 'Chicago P.D.'?
With other cast members reportedly exiting the series in Season 10, it makes sense that fans would call Voight's future into question as well. Having an in-universe reason for the character to leave on top of ongoing rumors that the actor could be soon to exit as well, fan speculation has a lot to go off of.
But because it doesn't look like Jason Beghe, who plays Voight, is going anywhere, he'll probably get off with a suspension.
There were rumors about Jason Beghe's behavior on the set of 'Chicago P.D.'
Even though Voight's place in the police department is pretty solid, there was a time when fans wondered if Jason Beghe would be let go from the show. In 2016, multiple complaints were filed against Jason for alleged anger issues and aggressive behavior on set.
And according to Variety, there was still an investigation into Jason's anger issues the following year.
Since then, Jason has remained a big part of the series. But with Voight's indiscretions, it's hard not to wonder what it means for Jason's future on the show. For now, though, it seems Voight isn't going anywhere.
