Variety surprised us all with a report that Tracy Spiridakos will leave Chicago PD as Hailey Upton. When is this exit set to happen?

There hasn’t been much in the way of updates about our favorite TV shows. That’s not surprising with all the strike action currently going on. It’s impossible to bring updates about shows that have no storylines written.

However, Variety surprised us all. It turns out that Tracy Spiridakos is set to leave the series. She plays Hailey Upton, who has seen some major storylines in terms of character growth in recent years. Spiridakos hasn’t confirmed her exit, but she also hasn’t denied it. It is possible that she can’t speak about it just yet due to the SAG-AFTRA strike, so it makes it difficult to tell if the reports are fully true.

When will Upton leave Intelligence in Chicago PD?

The report states that Spiridakos will leave the series after Season 11. That means we’ll get to see Upton in the upcoming season, which is set to be shorter than previous seasons due to the strike delays.

It is unknown just how many episodes Upton will appear in the season. This isn’t surprising considering the writers have only just recently been able to get back to work. On top of that, the original plan was for the characters to not be in every single episode of this season due to the budget. That could have changed with the episode count being reduced considerably due to the strike action.

It’s not clear just how Upton will leave the show just yet. It is possible that she ends up reconnecting with Jay Halstead, her husband who re-enlisted and has been ghosting her since. It’s also possible that Chicago PD could opt to take a more permanent step to remove the character.
