Jesse Spencer said goodbye to NBC’s Chicago Fire after ten seasons on Wednesday night, and the actor says the departure of his character Matt Casey was “perfect.”
“It wraps up ten years for me,” Spencer said of his departure from the series. “I think it was pretty natural for him to leave, and he’s going for three years, but is he? We have no idea. When you consider how these compadres have gone through life and death together, it’s been a long time coming. It’s difficult to say goodbye, you know, “see you soon.” It was bittersweet, but I really enjoyed it, and we laughed a lot.” “I’m sorry Jessie is leaving,” he said. “It was a challenging episode to write.
” He’s been incredible from the beginning of the pilot to the present, and he’s one of my favourite people outside of acting. I would call Jessie whenever I was in Chicago to arrange a get-together. Anyway, I have bittersweet or simply bitter feelings, but I thought the episode turned out really well. I just wanted to publicly thank Jesse for his incredible service and friendship, as well as for making the show incredible.”Spencer stated that after nearly two decades on television, he is looking forward to exploring new opportunities.
“I realised I’d been doing TV for a long time, so I totaled it up,” he explained. “I believe this is my 18th year on television because I went from House to Chicago Fire.” We were approaching the 200th episode when I called Derek to inform him that it was time for me to leave the show. He agreed that we should get Casey to the 200th episode at the very least. It was a difficult decision because I’ve enjoyed the show since its inception, but there are other things I’d like to do in the future. I have a family to look after, and 18 years is a long time.
With Casey and Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer) only recently starting their relationship, things will become complicated for the couple as they try long distance.”It was difficult because I really like Kara and we have a great relationship.” “I had a great time working with her,” Spencer said. “And there’s always the possibility that I’ll return.
” We’re still debating whether Casey will return. That is a possibility, you understand. Derek and I discussed it, and it’s a possibility for me as well.” Raymund also revealed that she was supposed to return at the end of last season but was unable to do so due to Covid constraints. Her reappearance would have tied into Matt and Sylvie’s storyline, as Sylvie struggled to move forward with the new romance due to her friendship with Gabby and her fear that he still harboured feelings for his ex-wife.
Raymund, like Spencer, is always willing to return to Firehouse 51.”I adore Derek; he’s my boy,” she exclaimed with a broad smile. “I never say no to Gabriela Dawson. The door is always unlocked. “I never turn down an opportunity to tell a storey.”Could Dawsey and Stellaride cross paths again, say at the Stellaride wedding? You’ll have to keep an eye on things.Wednesday nights at 9 p.m., Chicago Fire airs.
