‘Chicago Fire’ Star Opens Up About Possibly Returning To First-Responder Drama

Let’s get back to the possibility that Raymund returns to the NBC show’s lineup.

Earlier this season, Jesse Spencer left Chicago Fire after 10 seasons.

But Raymund had some words to say about Spencer’s departure. The actress spoke with Deadline.

“I wish Jesse all the best,” she said. “I love him so much. They were so lucky to have him and I’m excited to see what he does next.”

Fans are still weeping over Matt Casey’s departure.

Spencer and showrunners are still open to having her return. She made guest appearances in Seasons 7 and 8 on Chicago Fire. The actress made plans to come back in Season 9 but the pandemic nixed it.

What would she have done on Chicago Fire? Gotten involved in Casey and Sylvie Brett’s relationship.

As for coming back later on, Raymund says, “I never close the door on Gabriela Dawson…I never say no to an opportunity to tell stories.”

People said she spent two years auditioning for different parts within the One Chicago franchise. Eventually, she auditioned for the part of Gianna and everything seemed to work out perfectly. Rae only appeared in Season 9 and left.
