Sophia Bush Explains Decision to Quit 'Chicago PD' TV Show

Sophia Bush is opening up about why she decided to quit her NBC series Chicago PD.

The 36-year-old actress, who is currently developing new projects, chatted with Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast about having an epiphany after visiting the Onsite retreat.

“I realized that as I was thinking I was like being the tough guy, doing the thing, showing up to work, I programmed myself to tolerate the intolerable,” Sophia said. “Part of the big break for me in saying, ‘No. I don’t necessarily know what it is, but I know that what’s happening is not good for me and everything has to change.’ That was a big cut off point when I quit my job.”

“I quit because, what I’ve learned is I’ve been so programmed to be a good girl and to be a work horse and be a tug boat that I have always prioritized tugging the ship for the crew, for the show, for the group, ahead of my own health. The reality was that my body was, like, falling apart, because I was really, really unhappy,” Sophia added.

Some of the problems that Sophia faced on set were the harsh weather conditions in Chicago.

Sophia had signed a seven-year contract for the show and notified her bosses about issues she was facing in between seasons three and four. When she was “told to stop,” she threatened to sue the network and write an op-ed for the New York Times if she wasn’t let out of her contract quietly.

“I work really hard. I know I have a good reputation. I am not a difficult person to work with,” she said (via People). “Nearing my tenure there, I was probably difficult to be around because I was in so much pain and I felt so ignored.”

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.
