Chicago Med is losing another member of its original cast. Brian Tee (above, center left) is exiting the NBC series after eight seasons. Viewers of the medical drama will see Doctor Ethan Choi depart in this season’s ninth episode, titled “Could Be the Start of Something New,” which is set to air on December 7th. Tee will however return to the set to make his directorial debut with the 16th episode of the season.
“Playing Dr. Ethan Choi on Chicago Med has been such a gift and a blessing. I am forever grateful to our fans and my colleagues both in front of and behind the camera as I embark on a new journey. I am forever indebted to Dick Wolf, NBC, and Universal Television for choosing me.
What we’ve been planning for Dr. Choi’s sendoff is fitting, and it’s beautiful. I think the fans are going to absolutely love it. It’s going to bring a little bit of the new Ethan and a little bit of the old. Know that episode 9 is going to be an amazing one.”
Nick Gehlfuss, Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Steven Weber, Marlyne Barrett, Dominic Rains, Kristen Hager, Yaya DaCosta, and Jessy Schram also star in the medical drama series which follows the staff of Gaffney Chicago Medical Center.
Chicago Med currently airs on Wednesday nights on NBC.
What do you think? Will you be sad to see Tee exit Chicago Med later this season?
