Chicago Med has lost two of its original cast members ahead of its seventh season, with both Torrey DeVitto and Yaya DaCosta calling time on their characters.

DeVitto and DaCosta – who play Dr Natalie Manning and April Sexton, respectively – confirmed their exits from the drama series following an initial report by Deadline.

The contracts of Chicago Med's original cast are said to be up at the end of season six, which premiered in the US back in November of last year, but all other original stars are expected to return.

Announcing her departure in an Instagram post, DeVitto thanked "loyal watchers" who enjoyed following Dr Manning as much as she did.

Promising that "new adventures await", DeVitto wrote: "It has been such an [honour] and pure joy to bring Dr Natalie Manning to life for all of you on Chicago Med for the past 6 seasons. 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!"

DaCosta followed suit shortly after, sharing her own farewell post on social media. Looking back on "six amazing seasons" as April Sexton, DaCosta paid tribute to the show's cast and crew for their hard work and support over the years.

"After six amazing seasons of working with some of the most dedicated people in the business, learning wild medical jargon, growing as an actor and as a person... my time as April Sexton on Chicago Med has come to a close.

"I am so grateful to Dick Wolf, Peter Jankowski, show runners Andy Schneider and Diane Frolov, our producers (and stellar directors) Michael Waxman and Michael Pressman, and the entire Wolf Entertainment team for believing in me from the show's very inception, and for giving April wings to explore such dynamic storylines."

DaCosta concluded: "I'm going to miss everyone dearly, and of course, all of you who watch the show religiously and have also become part of the One Chicago family."

Chicago Med airs on NBC in the US, and on Sky Witness in the UK.
