Jesse Spencer’s return to Chicago Fire has fans excited and buzzing with anticipation. Spencer, who portrays Captain Matthew Casey, has been a fan favorite since the show’s debut in 2012, and his absence from the show has left fans eager for his return.

The return of Jesse Spencer to Chicago Fire promises to be a highly anticipated event for fans of the show, and many are eagerly counting down the days until they can see him back in action. Social media has been ablaze with fans expressing their excitement about Spencer’s return ever since it was confirmed he’d be coming back to the series this spring, with many speculating about will bring back to town and how long he’ll be sticking around.

The first part of this question was answered last week with the release of the synopsis for the April 5 episode which revealed that Casey is returning to serve with Kidd on a special task force. Now, it seems we’ve finally gotten the answer to the question of how many episodes Casey will be sticking around for… and the answer is sure to disappoint.

Is Jesse Spencer back on Chicago Fire?

Although many fans had hoped that Jesse Spencer would be returning to Chicago Fire in a larger capacity and appearing in more than one episode, that does not appear to be the case. Instead, it’s looking like Casey won’t be sticking around long at all.

In discussing Spencer’s upcoming return, the official NBC Insider blog revealed that Spencer is “only returning for one episode.” That’s right, it appears, Spencer is just going to appear in the April 5 episode of the show and will not be returning in a more regular capacity.

Now, it’s important to note that there is a possibility that Spencer could stick around as the same article from NBC’s blog also mentions he’s “only expected to be back for one episode.” this line seems to suggest there could be a possibility that Spencer’s return will play a larger role than NBC originally let on.

We should know for certain what the future might hold once the April 5 episode airs; however, it’s looking incredibly likely that this will be a one-episode guest appearance and not a recurring role for Spencer.
