During Chicago Fire’s 200th episode, Matthew Casey said his goodbyes and headed to Oregon to take care of the Darden boys. Jesse Spencer left the long-running firefighter drama after 10 seasons, but he won’t be gone for good. He explained to reporters, including HollywoodLife, that he will return to the drama at some point in the future.
“As a lead, you don’t want to leave a show. But I wanted to leave the show. It was time for me,” he said. “It was OK [saying goodbye] because there is the potential for me to come back. I still am in Chicago right now. I’m not running off to Los Angeles or anything, although I might escape for a little bit for the winter… My home here with my wife [Kali Woodruff Carr] is in Chicago, and I’m still going to be here, I’m just stepping back for right now.”
