A Tearful Goodbye: Tracy Spiridakos Exits Chicago P.D.

After seven seasons of captivating audiences as the tough-as-nails Detective Hailey Upton, Tracy Spiridakos is bidding farewell to Chicago P.D. The news, confirmed by showrunner Gwen Sigan in January 2024, has sent ripples of sadness through the fandom and the cast alike. 

Emotions Run High

LaRoyce Hawkins, who plays Officer Kevin Atwater, was visibly emotional when speaking about Spiridakos' departure. "It's very heartbreaking, to be honest with you," he confided. He described Spiridakos as a bright light on set, someone who brought joy and warmth to everyone around her. "She grew into all of our lives as, like, just a favorite," he said, his voice thick with emotion. "She's really like a sister." 

The sentiment was echoed by Jason Beghe, who plays the formidable Sergeant Hank Voight.

He spoke about Spiridakos with deep affection and respect, acknowledging the profound impact she had on the show. "She will always be part of the shop," he asserted. "She's changed the show, and therefore even going forward, whether she's in the episode or not, she'll be part of the show."

A New Chapter

While Spiridakos herself hasn't publicly addressed her exit, it seems she's following a trend of long-standing "One Chicago" actors moving on to new opportunities.
