Jon teased a potential return to the franchise

Dedicated to the franchise, Jon appeared in three One Chicago shows from 2012 – 2019, starring in Chicago Fire and Chicago Justice, as well as Chicago P.D.

The 52-year-old made his final appearance in the season six finale of Chicago P.D, and in the premiere of series seven, fans learned that Antonio had decided to resign from the Intelligence team, relocating to Puerto Rico to be nearer his family. 

At the time of his departure, Deadline reported that the star had left the show due to “creative reasons related to the character’s story evolution”.

The outlet reported that the show’s producers felt that Jon’s character had been “played out”. It was also noted that Jon was well-liked by the producers and could appear in another Dick Wolf show at a later date. 

The actor is currently starring in NBC’s La Brea, in which he plays Dr. Sam Velez. The show, which is set in LA, sees a massive sinkhole open in the middle of the city, separating a family between two worlds and unleashing an unexplainable primeval world.
