Jesse Lee Soffer is returning to CHICAGO P.D.—behind the camera.

Soffer, who played Jay Halstead from 2013-2022 on CHICAGO P.D., CHICAGO FIRE, CHICAGO MED, and LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT, will direct episode 12 of season 11. He posted a fun BTS shot on Instastory showcasing a sign with his name on it, as well as “prepping director,” underneath it, with the added text, “Back at it.”

The actor first stepped behind the camera for season 10’s “Deadlocked,” and at the time, he told Give Me My Remote he would “definitely [be] open to” returning to direct again.

The last go-round, Soffer directed a Voight (Jason Beghe)-centric hour, that he called a “throwback episode.” “It’s like an old-school, season 1, season 2, Voight story—Voight, man on fire, kind of doing his Voight thing,” Soffer said at the time. “And that’s a version of the show that I know and love. And so I was excited to play that game with Jason and tell an old-school P.D. story.”

He’ll once again be diving into a Voight-centric story: Beghe recently told GMMR that the Noah (Bobby Hogan) case would return in the last two episodes in a big way. “The last two are going to focus on this case,” he shared. “So [episodes] 6, 7, and then 12, 13. But, you know, in 8 and 9, there’s references…we keep it alive for the trained eye. Even in episode 10, which Voight is not really in, it’s because he’s off chasing leads on this case. So it’s something that Voight is very…this is definitely what’s the senior kind of purpose in his professional life right now.”

CHICAGO P.D., Wednesdays, 10/9c, NBC
