Marina Squerciati is gifting fans some never-before-seen photos—and seeing the whole Chicago PD cast out and about together is bound to put a smile on anyone's face.

The shots—uploaded to Squerciati’s Instagram Story—were all taken during Jesse Lee Soffer’s birthday celebrations at Lyra, a Greek restaurant in the city’s Fulton Market district.

Soffer, who portrayed Jay Halstead, previously exited the police procedural during the 10th season, however, he’s continued to stay involved in the show as a director. In the first snap, the birthday boy was joined by his former on-screen love interest Hailey Upton, played by Tracy Spiridakos, who also departed the series a week ago during the Chicago PD Season 11 finale.

Squerciati was all smiles in the photo alongside former co-star Elias Koteas, who made a surprise appearance in the finale six years after his character, Alvin Olinsky, was tragically killed off in Season 5, and LaRoyce Hawkins, who currently portrays Kevin Atwater.

“The pictures from Jesse’s birthday at @LyraGreek that I wasn’t allowed to show you before,” the 40-year-old actress wrote in the caption, adding, “an Elias surprise.”

The second photo found Spiridakos, Soffer and Koteas—without his signature beanie—sharing a meal and sipping on wine at the establishment.

As for the third photo, it gave fans a look at the rest of the party, which included Jason Beghe (who plays Det. Hank Voight), Benjamin Levy Aguilar (Dante Torres), and newcomer Bojana Novakovic (SVU Detective Jo Petrovic). Squerciati noted the shot was taken on Bojana’s “old school camera.”

Previously, Spiridakos brought fans to tears by uploading a series of sweet behind-the-scenes photos embracing Koteas during his brief cameo in the finale episode.

“I’m so glad Luce had a camera to capture our reunion. Love you so much!” she wrote in the caption, as fans commented on the “nostalgic” moment and “unexpected surprise.”

These IRL glimpses will have to hold fans over until the fall when Chicago PD returns for its 12th season on NBC, along with sister shows Chicago Fire and Chicago Med, airing their 13th and 10th seasons, respectively.
