Is Torrey DeVitto Actually Leaving Chicago Med?

"Chicago Med," the NBC show of the "One Chicago" franchise that centers on the emergency department of the fictional Gaffney Chicago Medical Center, is very much an ensemble drama. Just as any hospital department is made up of several doctors and nurses working together, "Chicago Med" is full of talented actors making up the ensemble cast of this medical drama.

One of the most prominent characters in the six seasons the show has released so far is Dr. Natalie Manning, played by Torrey DeVitto. Natalie is an ED pediatrician who started out as a fellow before becoming an attending physician in her field in a later season.

Having been there since the beginning of the show, Natalie is undeniably a major part of Gaffney Chicago Medical Center. Fans may have a hard time imagining the hospital without her. But news of DeVitto potentially leaving the show has been circulating lately. So, is she actually leaving "Chicago Med"? Here's what we know.

DeVitto is officially exiting the show

Sadly, the news is true — DeVitto is leaving "Chicago Med" after a six-season run as the cast members' initial contracts come to their ends. After Deadline first broke the news yesterday that both DeVitto and her co-star Yaya DaCosta would be leaving, DeVitto took to Instagram to address the departure herself. She began her post, "Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag...All good things must come to an end."

DeVitto expressed her gratitude for playing Dr. Natalie Manning for six seasons, calling it "an honor and pure joy." She continued, "But it is now time for her and me to bow out and say goodbye. Thank you to all you loyal watchers who adored her as much as I did. I can't wait to share what's to come with all of you. New adventures await!"

According to the Deadline article, one of these "new adventures" for DeVitto will include acting in the indie film "Skelly" from writer-director Matthew Greene-DeLange. While "Skelly" and other future endeavors will prove suitable outlets for DeVitto's talents, "Chicago Med" fans will definitely miss Dr. Natalie Manning.
