The latest preview for NBC's "Chicago P.D." offers hints at how "dirty" cop Hank Voight managed to go from jail to running the department’s elite Intelligence Unit.
"Things worked out, yeah," Voight says to the incredulous District 21 commander when he asks about the new sergeant's good fortune.
And that's about all he's going to get. As fans of "Chicago Fire" already know, Voight brokered a deal and now he's hunting bigger fish for a mystery woman he keeps meeting in secluded spots around Chicago.
This deal seems a bit sketchy; I doubt it would ever happen in the real world. But it should make for some entertaining drama.
The new clip also confirms that Voight is still a tough guy who likes to follow his own rules. Looks like he convinces those working for him to follow the same path, too.
"This is out unit now," he tells his detectives. "We do things my way."
"Chicago P.D." comes from the "Chicago Fire" team of producers Dick Wolf, Michael Brandt, Derek Haas and Matt Olmstead, Jon Seda as Det. Antonio Dawson, Jesse Lee Soffer as Det. Jay Halstead, Sophia Bush as Det. Erin Lindsay, Patrick John Flueger as Officer Kyle Ruzak. Harvey resident LaRoyce Hawkins and Northwestern grad Marina Squerciati play patrol officers who work with Voight's unit. Steppenwolf Theatre alum Amy Morton plays a sarcastic desk sergeant.
The new video ends with a look back at a scene from Season 1 of "Chicago Fire" when Voight saves firefighter Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer), with whom he had a long feud. The man, holding a gun to Casey's head on an "L" platform, says to the hard-charging detective, "So you're Voight."
Voight answers by shooting him in the head. Yes, this guy does things his own way.
I've included two other preview below. I'll be visiting the set later this week so if you have any questions, put them in the comments.
"Chicago P.D." premieres at 9 p.m. Jan. 8 on NBC.
