Chicago P.D. Season 11: Meet Dr. Julian Mitchell

The much-anticipated return of the Intelligence Unit to Chicago PD for Season 11 premiered on January 2024. As fans eagerly await the new season, a new character, Dr. Julian Mitchell, comes into the spotlight, offering to bring something new and interesting to the team’s efforts to solve crimes.

In the opening, Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) shows that Dr. Julian Mitchell is an important part of the team’s first case of the season. Fans are used to Chicago P.D. stories being rough and full of action, but Mitchell’s introduction suggests that the show may be shifting its focus to a different theme. tvacute gets into the specifics to find out what Dr. Julian Mitchell is really like and how he affects the Intelligence Unit.

Who is Dr. Julian Mitchell on Chicago P.D.?

In the first episode of Season 11, Dr. Julian Mitchell shows up as a psychologist on the Crisis Response Prevention Team. The idea for the character wasn’t just made up; it came from the Crisis Intervention Units (CITs), which are real programs that operate all over the country.

The Crisis Response Prevention Team, which is based on the idea of the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT), makes the way the Intelligence Unit does police work more complicated. The character’s creator, Gwen Sigan, talks about what inspired her. She says that the CITs’ job is to “de-escalate mental health crises” and connect people who need it with mental health care.

This season, the writers are giving the characters new options, which is similar to what places like Chicago are doing to change the way they do police work by using CITs. The exploration of the themes gives the story more depth and shows that the show is committed to talking about modern problems within its framework.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Chicago is a very important part of making Dr. Julian Mitchell’s character seem real. Their CIT is made up of trained officers whose job it is to handle mental health situations. They focus on teaching people about mental health conditions and symptoms and giving them hands-on role-play training. It’s a nice change from the usual way of solving crimes, and it gives the made-up world of Chicago P.D. a sense of reality.

Who plays Dr. Julian Mitchell on Chicago P.D.?

On-screen, Jason Bowen brings the mysterious Dr. Julian Mitchell to life on his own. Law & Order: SVU fans who are familiar with the huge world of Dick Wolf will recognize Bowen from his roles on the show. In “December Solstice,” Episode 16 of Season 16, he played Devon Wallace. In Seasons 18 (Episodes 10 and 15) and 23 (Episode 22), he played murder detective Marcus Perry.

Bowen’s work on Law & Order: SVU is notable because it includes a turning point in the show’s history. In Season 18, Episode 10, “Motherly Love,” the famous 400th episode, which was directed by Mariska Hargitay, he had a part. This fact not only gives fans something new to learn, but it also shows how long Bowen has been a part of crime series.

Besides his work on Chicago P.D. and Law & Order: SVU, Jason Bowen has also been in a number of other well-known shows, such as The Good Fight, Blue Bloods, Orange is the New Black, and Madam Secretary. His versatility as an actor is clear in the way he can easily switch between parts, which helps every show he’s in do well.
