‘Chicago Fire’s Casey, Brett Staying Together Amid Jesse Spencer’s Exit


An extended-distance love. Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Brett (Kara Killmer) received’t be ending their relationship regardless of his massive transfer to Oregon, Chicago Fire cocreator Derek Haas instructed Us Weekly and different reporters forward of the 2 hundredth episode on Wednesday, October 20.

“She better not be single,” Spencer, 42, who confirmed he’s leaving the present after 10 seasons, stated through 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 author, 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 present sooner somewhat 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!’”

During Wednesday’s episode, the pair stated goodbye and instructed one another that they needed to proceed courting. The romance between the characters was truly one of many hardest issues for the Uptown Girls actor to stroll away from.

“That was the one part of it [that was tough]. We’ve been establishing this relationship for three years and we finally just got there. … Casey’s leaving and going to Oregon for the right reasons. It all felt really organic, but it was difficult,” he stated. “There is the chance that I will come back too. We’re toying with, ‘Will Casey come back?’ That’s a possibility for me too. They’re trying to make this relationship work. They know that he’s leaving so they’re sort of saying nothing’s going to change.”

Haas stated that the couple plan to “keep it alive” through FaceTime and touring, including, “This is a three-year commitment that Casey’s making but hopefully we’ll see him before those three years are done.”

Spencer, who has been engaged on TV for 18 straight years, becoming a member of Chicago Fire proper after wrapping House, felt it “was time” to exit the Dick Wolf drama — for now.

“As a lead, you don’t want to leave a show. But I wanted to leave the show. It was time for me. So [it’s] bittersweet,” he stated. “[Saying goodbye on set] was OK 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.”

Chicago Fire airs on NBC Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET.
