A long-distance love. Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Brett (Kara Killmer) won’t be ending their relationship despite his big move to Oregon, Chicago Fire cocreator Derek Haas told Us Weekly and other reporters ahead of the 200th episode on Wednesday, October 20.
“She better not be single,” Spencer, 42, who confirmed he’s leaving the show after 10 seasons, said during the video junket.
“She’s gonna be in a long-distance relationship for a while. … You’ll get some interesting story lines for her,” the writer, 51, teased. “It’s not going to take you ’til the end of the season to see some Brett developments but she’s not single. This newfound love is staying.”
The Australia native, who teased that he’ll “be back” to the show sooner rather than later, added, “This is when Casey is gonna show up — when she starts dating someone else. Casey’s gonna come in fists swinging, [yelling], ‘Get away from her!'”
