Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney has been on a leave of absence from the show.
Taylor plays firefighter Kelly Severide on the hit NBC drama, but he asked for some time away.
Within the show, the writers hinted that Severide isn’t coming back this season.
Taylor’s absence from the show hasn’t been explained, leading to rumors about a permanent exit.
The show even brought back Matt Casey (played by Jesse Spencer) as a guest star.
But fans still miss seeing Severide as a component of each episode.
