Jesse, who is an original cast member, announced his exit from the show back in August.

In a statement, he said: "I want to thank the incredible fans for their unwavering support during the past ten years and want to express my deepest gratitude to Dick Wolf and everyone at Wolf Entertainment, Peter Jankowski, Matt Olmstead, Derek Haas, Michael Brandt, Rick Eid, Gwen Sigan, NBC, Universal Television, my fellow castmates and our incredible crew.


Jesse left the show during season 10

"To create this hour drama week after week has been a labor of love by everyone who touches the show. I will always be proud of my time as Det. Jay Halstead."

He shot his final scenes as Jay Halstead in episode three when the detective turned in his badge, telling his wife, Hailey Upton, that he was relocating to Bolivia with the Army for eight months.
