More from Variety

Rains has starred in the NBC medical drama since Season 5, when he began playing Crockett Marcel, a skilled doctor from New Orleans who leads the Gaffney Chicago Medical Center’s 2.0 surgical suite.

Though Rains is confirmed to have exited as a series regular, it is not yet known if he will reprise the role in a guest capacity.

The news comes after the Season 9 finale aired on May 22 and hinted at a goodbye for Crockett, who loses a young patient named Colin after making the decision not to operate on him, leading Colin’s father to commit suicide. Hospital head Sharon Goodwin (S. Epatha Merkerson) encourages him to take time away from work to process. He later confesses to nurse Maggie Lockwood (Marlyne Barrett) that he lost his own daughter to leukemia.

“I know how he felt,” Crockett says of Colin’s father. “I didn’t have a gun.” Maggie asks Crockett if she’ll see him the next day, and he says yes, but hesistates.

Rains also played Crockett in four episodes of “Chicago Fire” and one episode of “Chicago P.D.,” which also air on NBC and take place in the same universe. Outside of the One Chicago franchise, Rains’ credits include ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” Amazon’s “Tales From the Loop” and Ana Lily Amirpour’s 2014 film “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.”

Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead created “Chicago Med” and serve as executive producers alongside Diane Frolov, Andrew Schneider, Stephen Hootstein, Eli Talbert, Derek Haas, Arthur Forney, Michael Brandt and Peter Jankowski. Universal Television is the studio, producing in association with Wolf Entertainment.
