Chicago Fire: Jesse Spencer to Return in Season 11 Amid Taylor Kinney’s Absence

Casey is back in Chicago, once again. Jesse Spencer, who left NBC’s “Chicago Fire” in 2021 after 200 episodes, will return for the 18th episode of Season 11, Variety confirms. Details about his storyline are still under wraps.

Spencer portrayed Matt Casey on the Dick Wolf drama for the first nine seasons. He left during the the fifth episode of Season 10, as the character moved to Oregon with a three-year commitment to a new job.

At the time, he shared that he was walking away from the show since he’d been doing television for 18 years and wanted to take a step back and spend more time with his family. (He previously starred in the Australian soap “Neighbours” and portrayed Dr. Robert Chase on Fox’s “House.”)

Spencer came back to the procedural for the Season 10 finale, when he returned to stand alongside his best friend, Severide (Taylor Kinney), at his wedding to Stella (Miranda Ray Mayo).

The Season 11 return comes at an important time for the “One Chicago” franchise amid a slew of exits. Kinney is on a temporary leave of absence from the show due to a personal matter and made his last appearance, for now, during the Feb. 22 episode. His character was written off during the March 1 episode, with Severide enrolling into an out-of-town arson investigation training program.

At the end of Season 11, co-creator and co-showrunner Derek Haas will also be leaving the franchise.

“I learned everything I know about storytelling, pace, characters, production values, and hiring the best cast, crews, and staffs from Dick Wolf and Peter Jankowski,” he told Variety in a statement in November. “As hard as it is to leave a place you love and have called home for over a decade, including incredible support from Universal Television, NBC and CBS, I look forward to building my own brand in entertainment.”

“Chicago Fire” airs on NBC Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET

They say our favourite heroines’ strong characteristics live in each of us. Right for this reason I’d like to be beautiful like Brooke Davis, clever like Raven Reyes and confident like Stella Kidd. Instead, I’m flabby like Kate Pearson, dreamy like Belle Gold and determined like Brianna Fraser. I love passionate TV series, great cinema, and good books. To combine my greatest passions, I gave life to the world of Survived The Shows, which I’m currently running, as well as creating digital content and writing articles and reviews.
