[ # ] Jesse Spencer said goodbye to Chicago Fire
October 21st, 2021 under Dick Wolf

Yesterday was the 200th episode of Chicago Fire, and we said goodbye to Jesse Spencer. The actor, who has been with the show since day one, decided now was the perfect time to move on.

“I realized I’ve been doing TV for a long time,” Spencer said in a call with reporters. “I added it up and this year is my 18th year because I went straight from House to Chicago Fire. We were coming up to the 200th episode, and so I called [showrunner] Derek [Haas] and I broke the news that I’m leaving the show. He agreed that we should at least get Casey to the 200th episode. It was a difficult decision because I’ve loved this show from the start, but there’s other things that I would like to do in the future and family that I need to take care of.”

After ten years in Chicago, you can’t blame the Aussie native for wanting a change.

Is the last we will see of Matt Casey? He might pop in every now and again, like for Severide’s wedding to Kidd, according to Parade.

I am sad to see him go. But at least they didn’t kill him off. They let him do the noble thing and take care of his best friend’s minor sons.
