While Ruzek and Burgess are going to continue to be a part of “Chicago PD” in a pretty significant way, there is one thing that you should remember: That doesn’t mean that they have to be together. We’ve seen their relationship go through ebbs and flows to the point of an engagement, and we’ve even spoken with Marina Squerciati about this: We’re still not entirely sure that Ruzek really knows what he did wrong. It’s hard to fix a relationship if you don’t know what is broken, and he hasn’t put together the pieces just yet.
Ultimately, the good news here is that we will have a chance to see a few other interesting stories play out involving the two of them … just not with each other for the time being. In speaking on their future to Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Matt Olmstead passed along the following message:
“There’s always going to be an attraction there and never say never, but I think we fully exhausted that storyline all the way up until being engaged … To revisit that might feel a little bit like a retread. They are both obviously very capable actors; we can give them some new storylines involving new characters.”
We know that at one point this coming season, Burgess will be paired with a new, female partner following Roman’s departure near the end of last season. That should create some new, interesting dynamics, but the show in general has been hush-hush on specifics. That should change somewhat as we inch closer to the premiere.
