In Season 9, the boss of ‘Chicago P.D.’ teases romance for Atwater.

LaRoyce Hawkins, who plays Detective LaRoyce Hawkins on Chicago P.D., might get a chance to play romantic scenes once more. Hawkins’ character, Officer Kevin Atwater, will get a new girlfriend, according to series showrunner Rich Eid. Despite the fact that the character has been on the show since Season 1, he has only had one romantic storyline, which occurred in Season 6 when he met Milauna Jemai Jackson’s Laila. Despite their chemistry in the episode “Black and Blue,” Atwater and Laila’s storyline was cut short when Laula was sentenced to prison for murder. Eid said Atwater will finally meet a new woman in a new interview with TVLine, which was published before Season 9 premiered last week. He was wary of disclosing any information about the mysterious new character.

It’ll be an exciting journey for his character. ”
