What will happen in Chicago P.D. Season 11?

It's nearly impossible to predict what could happen in Season 11. However, we do know that fans hope Burgess and Ruzek maintain their newly-rekindled romance after spending the past three seasons as platonic co-parents.

"If Instagram comments are any indication, most of the fans are like, 'Just leave them alone, leave them alone,'" Flueger told NBC Insider. "So I think we’ve got enough opportunities for drama on our show that maybe you’ll actually be able to see two people just kind of be happy together."

He continued, "[Marina and I have] definitely both told the writers—and, you know, we can tell them anything we want, but it doesn’t mean they’re going to listen—that if they break us up again, like, please let’s not try this again because it’s too much. It’s too much."

It'll also be interesting to see how Upton continues to (not) deal with Halstead's absence after he left Chicago for Bolivia following Jesse Lee Soffer's exit from the show.

“This ultimately will change her in some way, which I’m interested to see how," Spiridakos told Variety. "We’re still in the change. She finds out that he’s extended his stay and has that breakdown moment of having this hope and then all of a sudden, that’s gone. It’s the first time we see her break down since he’s left, since their goodbye. I think there’s gonna be some changes for her over the next little while.”
