Fans of Dick Wolf’s other hugely popular franchise, One Chicago, will be familiar with Mykelti Williamson, who played Lieutenant Denny Wood on Chicago PD between 2016 and 2018. The 64-year-old actor, who is also known for his roles in Nashville and The Good Wife, will play a character by the name of Preston Webb.

Ray Donovan star Dash Mihok will play Reggie Bogdani and Scandal’s Guillermo Diaz will star as Sgt. Bill Brewster. Meanwhile, Lolita Davidovich, who is viewers will have seen most recently in The Good Witch, will portray a character named Flutura Briscu.

Little is known about any of the new characters, besides their names, and it seems that viewers won’t find out much more until the new series begins. However, given that only Guillermo’s character is being billed as having a police title, it seems that the others will be playing civilians rather than officers.
