What happened to Vanessa on Chicago PD?

Office Vanessa Rojas presence is missed in season eight of Chicago PD. According to Distractify, the exact reason for Lisseth Chavez's exit from the show. It is unsure whether she decided to leave the show, or did the producers decided to wrap up the character in the show. Audiences are still unsure of what to expect, considering her character was dropped without a proper conclusion. Rick Eid, the producer of the show said in an interview with TV Line that they tried to address the exit of Lisseth's character in the season eight premiere episode but it 'felt forced'. He added that they are working on the storyline.

Season seven of Chicago PD had pointed at a possible romance between Rojas and Atwater because of the sparks flying between the two. She had also finally formed a bond with Upton in the show, hence her absence from the latest season leaves behind many questions. The character of Office Vanessa Rojas seemed promising and was expected to go steady in the forthcoming seasons. 

Lisseth Chavez who plays the role of Vanessa on Chicago PD left the show and has joined DC's Legends of Tomorrow. She will be playing the role of Esperanza aka SPOONER on the show. She took to Instagram to announce the news of her new project.
