Is Kristen Hager leaving Chicago Med?

News of Hager’s pregnancy is likely to create speculation among fans regarding her character’s future with the show. Although it is possible we could see Stevie leave town to accommodate Hager’s pregnancy, there have been no reports from NBC or Hager announcing her departure from Chicago Med.

What seems most likely is that the writers might find creative ways to hide Hager’s real-life pregnancy within the show. This is a common trend many shows have utilized over the years when it’s decided not to write the pregnancy into the show.

If this is indeed the route the show takes, we might begin to notice Hager’s character appearing strategically behind items and/or find the show shooting scenes featuring her character from unique angles to help hide her baby bump.
