"Chicago Fire" star Jesse Spencer left the show after 10 years and 200 episodes during the episode on Wednesday night.
He told People that while it was a tough decision, it felt like the right time for him to go and pursue other projects.
But his character, Captain Matt Casey, may return: Showrunner Derek Haas said he would "move mountains" to make this happen.
"Chicago Fire" star Jesse Spencer left the series on Wednesday night after nearly 10 years and 200 consecutive episodes.
Spencer explained to People why he made the tough decision to leave the show.
"This was a tough decision because I loved the show from the start, but there are other things I want to do in the future and there is a family to look after," explained Spencer. "I marked these milestones and looked into the future ... and it was about time."
He continued, "It felt so organic to me and a perfect circle and a really reasonable way for Casey to go organic."
On this week's episode, Spencer's character Captain Matt Casey said goodbye to his friends and coworkers as he looked after the sons of his late best friend Andy Darden, who died in the show's pilot episode.
But Casey might return and hint during the episode that he would be returning to the Windy City when the boys were in college, according to a recap in Entertainment Weekly.
Showrunner Derek Haas said he hoped to bring Spencer back.
"I never try to predict what will happen in terms of production," Haas told Menschen. We talked. We have some ideas what that could be. "
