Danny Pino Left The Show To Be With Family? What Is He Doing Now Then?

It had been a 4-season stint on "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" for Danny Pino as Detective Nick Amaro from the last quarter of 2011 to 2015th second quarter. 

While the series' Season 16 finale concluded with a battering incident at a courtroom, the fans felt the real bang when their favorite character Detective Nick broke the news of leaving the force, and that was indeed the end of Danny for the series.

But what was the actual reason behind Danny leaving the team? And what is Danny up to these days? If you're also wondering about the same, worry not, as we explain that to you in this segment.

What's Danny Up To After Law And Order: SVU?

The reprising character from the last four seasons, Nick shocked the department and moreover, the viewers with his decision to leave the force.

On the show, he broke the news to his partner Detective Benson(Mariska Hargitay); revealing that he is retiring and moving out to California to be closer to his daughter and son. But what's the reason from Danny's side?

The fans of Danny ultimately reckoned his move to join the series Chicago P.D., where he guest appeared for two episodes in 2014-15.

Later, in an interview with TVGuide.com, the showrunner of the series, Warren Leight told that the anger of Nick had put him in a wrong place at the NYPD, so it felt right for him to start fresh somewhere else.

Well, it was good not to witness our favorite detective, Nick in the line of fire!
