Chicago P.D. has a new episode debuting soon that will be revisiting a character from the past.

It is clear that Alvin Olinsky will be referenced during the new TV promo and the early photos that have been released.

For several years, actor Elias Koteas played Detective Al Olinsky on the show, but the character died in the Season 5 finale.

Leading up to Olinsky’s death were quite a few terrific episodes of the show, including one where Hank Voight killed the man who had killed his son (Justin Voight).

Even though Voight had killed the man, DNA evidence linked the crime to Olinsky, who ended up going to prison for the murder.

While in prison, Olinsky was stabbed numerous times by another inmate, leading to his death. To avenge Olinsky, Voight then killed the man who had done it.

Below is the TV promo that NBC is running for the next new episode of Chicago P.D. ASA Chapman (played by Sara Bues) will likely lose an informant, forcing her to turn to Voight.

Voight has recent experience with losing an informant (Anna in Season 9 finale), and he is the right person to go to for a bit of vengeance. In the promo, we also see Voight standing at a mysterious grave.
