Chicago PD is going to say a final goodbye to one of its officers, and it is none other than Lisseth Chavez, who played the role of Vanessa Rojas, the Intelligence Unit Rookie. Vanessa Rojas will not be returning for the Chicago PD Season 8, and it has been confirmed by the officials. However, the actress won’t be off-screen for a long time, and she is boarding the Legends of Tomorrow of The CW, as a full-time cast member. Lisseth Chavez joined the cast in the seventh season of the show as an undercover cop, who was at that time recruited by Sergent Voight, to become one of the members of his team.
As a part of the until, Vanessa Rojas formed a slight flirtatious bond with her fellow officer, Kevin Atwater. It has also been confirmed by a source that the void left by the departure of the officer Rojas is going to be filled with some of the new additions in the cast. Firefighter Ritter, Fire’s Daniel Kyri, has been promoted to full-time status for the ninth season elsewhere in the world of #OneChicago. While Annie Ilonzeh, his co-star, will not be coming back as a series regular.
Why there were only 20 episodes in Season 7?
The seventh season of the show was cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic, that forced the creators of the show to halt the production of the seventh season. This eventually lead the show for an unintentional 20 episodes finale of the season. However, the show is slated to return for another season on November 11, Wednesday, and it will once again be airing at 10/9c on NBC. It will be aired after Chicago Med and Chicago Fire.
Chicago PD Season 8 | Why Lisseth Chavez Exited The Show?
Lisseth Chavez is going out of the door after being a regular of the series for the previous instalment. However, her exit is marked more by some positivity rather than negativity. She is leaving this show to join another colossal series, and she got this opportunity because of her strong performances in the seventh season of Chicago PD. Undoubtedly, this is an incredible opportunity of the 31-year-old actress.
Although she is always going to be remembered as a great character for portraying the role of Vanessa Rojas, we wish for her bright future and more wonderful performances in her future.
