Chicago P.D.‘s Kevin Atwater has been unlucky in love thus far, but that may soon change in Season 9.
The Intelligence detective Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins)’s only romantic storyline on Chicago PD occurred in the Season 6 episode “Black and Blue“. There he encountered a wholly likable woman named Laila (Milauna Jemai Jackson). Despite a palpable chemistry, their love affair was cut short after her deal with the District Attorney fell through and she was sentenced to prison for murder.
Chicago P.D. showrunner Rick Eid confirms that Kevin Atwater will, indeed, have a girlfriend in Season 9, which is premiering tonight at 10/9c on NBC.
“He meets a dynamic young woman, and their bond is fun and really unique. For Atwater, it’s a welcome, needed respite. It also becomes this safe space for the pair to be their true selves. But of course, things will be complicated, as any relationship on this show tends to be. It’ll be a great ride for his character.”Chicago PD showrunner Rick Eid
