Sophia Bush Explains Why She Left 'Chicago PD'

Sophia Bush is shutting down rumors about why she left Chicago PD after four seasons on the hit NBC series.

The 35-year-old actress just announced that she signed a development deal with 20th Century Fox and will be starring in a new pilot for the studio. A fan commented on her Instagram questioning if she left Chicago PD for this new adventure.

Then, another fan said, “Idk it sounded like they cut her not she cut them.”

Sophia decided to respond to this fan’s comment to explain what really happened. “Took me a long time and a lot of hard work to get out of that show. Please don’t demean my capabilities by degrading my position. I left because I wanted to. End of story,” she said.

    Great answer. Sometimes we leave things because we feel like it, we don’t have to do that because something else came up.

    Perhaps she should’ve spoken up about it months ago so people wouldn’t be left to speculate?

    I stopped watching that show at Season 3 Episode one.

    Really insulting as a fan – she leaves us hanging for months with no explanation on her exit and then snaps at us for drawing our own conclusions? Not only unfair, but really hurtful to the people who supported her. Makes me wary of becoming attached to her new projects…

    That does not answer the question of why she left. That comment she made sounds like she was really unhappy about something. I was surprised that she landed that tv gig anyway. She is a horrible actress. It was hard to take her seriously in that role.
