Chicago Fire is a police drama on TV, and one of its major characters, Otis, left the show.
But why did he leave? We asked executive producer Derek Haas.
He said that the character’s death was a good way to change things up.
Otis’ death on Chicago Fire
The Chicago Fire cast and crew have been weighing the decision to kill off Otis Ritter on the show.
It’s a decision that was deemed necessary for a number of reasons.
First, Otis was only on the show for one season, and his death will give the audience a reason to think about the future of their hero.
Second, it’ll serve as a reminder to viewers that the dangers of making calls are too great to ignore.
Otis’ death was a devastating blow for Chicago Fire fans.
His character, played by Yuriy Sardarov, suffered terrible burns from the fire.
He was unable to escape with the rest of his crew, but he sent out a distress call before he fell unconscious.
Cruz (Joe Minoso), who discovered him unconscious, rushed him to the hospital.
Though his condition was critical, Otis’ last words to his brother Joe Cruz were ‘Brother, I’ll be with you forever,’ which Joe Cruz didn’t fully understand until months later.
Yuri Sardarov’s departure from the show
Yuri Sardarov’s exit from Chicago Fire is a bittersweet moment for the show.
He’s been a part of the show since its first season, and it will be especially difficult for other characters to say goodbye to him.
Fortunately, the showrunners have made a smart choice in parting ways with the actor.
The actor has a series of interesting projects outside of his work with Chicago Fire.
He recently completed the film “Daddy,” which is based on the story of a dystopian society where men can’t father children.
He was supposed to be reunited with Miranda Rae Mayo for the film, but the Indiegogo page doesn’t list her as an actress.
Sylvie Brett’s return to the show
After several months away, Sylvie Brett is back to the show.
The actress was away setting up Girls on Fire programs in different cities.
However, her return has not been as unexpected as her absence.
Brett is back to spend time with her husband, Matthew Casey, and their two sons.
Fans have been wondering what to expect from Sylvie Brett’s return to Chicago.
The show’s writers have sounded promising for a season finale, and Sylvie Brett’s return to Chicago may be one of the deciding factors.
The executive producer of the show, Andrea Newman, told TVLine that Sylvie will be back in the show’s finale.
In addition to reuniting with Matthew Casey, Sylvie will be joining the 51.
The two will have to figure out their relationship going forward.
Casey’s departure from the show
After a year on the show, Casey left Chicago Fire for good, but his character was not the only one to make a big exit.
Sylvie Brett was his love interest and they grew closer.
In the season nine finale, “No Survivors,” they finally fell in love.
Casey then leaves Chicago for Oregon to take care of Andrew Darden’s children, but his relationship with Brett continues despite the distance.
Matt Casey was a staple of the One Chicago universe, but after just 200 episodes, he decided to leave the show.
The actor, who was admired by the writers, told the show’s producers that he wanted to spend more time with his family and pursue other career opportunities.
