Hot on the heels of confirming her relationship with Cubs manager David Ross, “Chicago Med” actress Torrey DeVitto is making headlines of a less happy nature for fans of the show.

According to a report on Deadline.com, DeVitto (who stars as Dr. Natalie Manning), and co-star Yaya DeCosta (who stars as nurse April Sexton) are exiting the popular NBC series after Season 6 for new gigs. DaCosta, according to the report, is headed to a starring role on the Fox series “Our Kind of People,” while DeVitto is now among the cast of the indie feature film “Skelly.”
