Chicago PD Star Tracy Spiridakos to exit After Season 11 – as it happened

Chicago PD star Tracy Spiridakos is set to exit the show after season 11.

She has played Detective Hailey Upton Halstead in the police procedural since season 4.

Now, according to Variety, Spiridakos will hang up her badge after the upcoming season.

As a result of the recently concluded WGA and ongoing SAG-AFTRA Hollywood strikes, filming of the next season of Chicago PD has been delayed indefinitely.

Therefore there is no confirmation as to how many episodes Spiridakos will appear in before his departure.

Spiridakos' exit follows his former Chicago PD co-star Jesse Lee Sofer exiting the series in October 2022.

The actor played Hailey's husband, Detective Jay Halstead, for 10 seasons since the show's debut.

Speaking to Variety about his decision to step down, Sofer admitted that "there is no good answer," although he was "ready for more."

"It was one of the hardest decisions I've ever made in my life," he said. 'I'm still grieving it, and to some extent I am.'
