Actress Leaves #ChicagoJustice

When Chicago Justice premieres in midseason the team of lawyers will be slightly different from what we seen.

It was announced on Thursday that Nazneen Contractor, who played ASA Dawn Patel in the backdoor pilot on Chicago PD, has left the series. 

Contractor won't be out of work for long as the actress has joined an upcoming CBS drama Ransom, from executive producer Frank Spotnitz.

This isn't the first time that the Windy Cit franchise has experienced casting changes. The Walking Dead alumna Laurie Holden appeared in the backdoor pilot for Chicago Med but left last July due to family reasons. And not to mention Scott Eastwood, Tania Raymonde, Kelly Blatz and Melissa Sagemiller were originally to star in PD. 

The Justice cast features Phillip Winchester (The Player), Carl Weathers (Rocky), Joelle Carter (Justified), and newcomer Ryan-James Hatanaka. 

Chicago Justice premieres midseason of the 2016-2017 season.
