‘Chicago P.D.’ star Tracy Spiridakos leaving series after next season

Tracy Spiridakos is waving goodbye to the Windy City.

The “Chicago P.D.” star, who fans know as Detective Hailey Upton, will reportedly leave the series after its upcoming 11th season.

According to Variety, it is unknown how long Spiridakos will be featured in the new season before she’s written off the Dick Wolf-produced procedural.

Her departure will follow the 2022 exit of Jesse Lee Soffer, who played her onscreen husband, Jay Halstead. At the time, the 39-year-old actor thanked the “incredible fans for their unwavering support during the past 10 years,” and expressed his “deepest gratitude” to producers, castmates and crew members.

Spiridakos shared her own heartfelt farewell to Soffer — who returned earlier this year to direct an episode of the series.

“Jesse, what can I say, you’re the absolute best,” she wrote in an Instagram post. “Thank you for your kindness, your guidance and your friendship. You’re the greatest onscreen husband a girl could ask for. I’ll miss being on set with you every day. I can’t wait to see what the world has in store for you next.”

The 35-year-old, who has yet to publicly comment on her departure, joined the series in 2017 near the end of the fourth season.
