Brian Tee returned to Chicago Med for the latest episode of the show.

As the director, Brian was behind the camera instead of in front.

For years, Brian starred as Dr. Ethan Choi, an essential part of the ED.

But in the final new episode of 2022, Brian left the show to spend more time with his family.

Ahead of Chicago Med Season 8, Episode 16 debuting, Brian made a social media post suggesting he is done with the show.

While “never” might seem like a long time, Brian may have officially closed this chapter of his life.

Is Brian Tee done with Chicago Med?

“That’s a wrap… different role, same show. Was an honor and privilege to work with all of you in front and now behind the camera. Much love to the cast and especially the crew for making this such an incredible experience,” Brian Tee wrote in an Instagram post.

It wasn’t the kind message he left for the show that is notable, but rather one of the hashtags he went with.

In addition to a hashtag for One Chicago, Brian wrote “#OneLastTime” on the post.

That does seem to be an impactful statement, suggesting he won’t be on the set of Chicago Med again.

Still, when Chicago Med eventually reaches the end, it would be good to see stars from the past return for cameos.

More news from One Chicago

The big news at One Chicago is the return of Matt Casey coming up on Chicago Fire. Actor Jesse Spencer left the show to take a break from acting but is back for a special episode.

Unfortunately, Casey’s return comes right after Kelly Severide left Firehouse 51. It would have been fun for the fans to see Casey and Severide sharing the screen again.

How will Sylvie Brett respond to him being back in town? Her dating life has started again, and after taking some time off, she is working hard to be present for her hockey player.

Meanwhile, a new Chicago Fire showmance has begun, with many fans paying close attention. How long will this one last? Stay tuned because it could impact where the show goes before the season finale in May.

To watch episodes of Chicago Med that featured Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi, they are all available for streaming on Peacock. That’s also where past episodes of Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. can be found during downtime at NBC.

Chicago Med airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
