Sophia Bush opened up about her Chicago P.D. departure to Refinery29’s Unstyled, “I don’t have to give everyone the specific break down of exactly why I left until I’m ready to do that. But, the overarching theme for me was that I landed my dream job,” Bush started. “I landed this job that, since I was 20 years old and trying to become an actor, I said I wanted. And aspects of it, don’t get me wrong, were wonderful. But, I realized…by the end of the second season I couldn’t do that job anymore.” The former One Tree Hill star told Refinery 29 that she’d confronted her bosses between season 3 and four telling them “if something really drastic doesn’t change, I’m leaving at the end of the year.” Bush left the show at the end of season 4 and now has a deal with 20th Century Fox to star and executive produce a television show.
