Chicago Fire: Ambush Predator (3×12)



Last week a storage containment facility caught fire. What was found inside was something even more terrfying as Casey, Severide and Dawson stumble upon a newspaper clipping on the death of one of their own, Leslie Shay. Detective Atwater from Chicago P.D. joins the search in the storage unit and agrees that all signs point to an arsonist’s arsenal, but he still warns that arson remains difficult to prove. Curious about the newspaper clipping of Shay and its link to the storage locker, Severide and Dawson revisit the collapsed building where Shay died and, in an emotional moment, they both remember how and where Shay took her last breath. Severide notes that the burn patterns don’t match what he remembers and so they need to check the official file.

Back at 51, car crash shocks the squad when they discover CFD’s Chaplain Orlovsky was in the driver’s seat in one of the cars. Casey makes the call to help the other car’s injured driver first which was risky at first. But in the end the team saves both victims, Orlovsky remains unconscious for an extended period at the hospital, during which Casey questions his initial decision and attempts to locate a living relative in the event of Orlovsky’s death… to no avail. Luckily, Orlovsky makes a full recovery, and as a show of appreciation, Casey and Herrmann enlist Herrmann’s peewee hockey team to paint Orlovsky’s apartment.

Meanwhile, both Brett and Mills turn down time off in response to their recent traumatic incident – and only Brett agrees to see a counselor. Later, they make a house call and find an obvious victim of domestic abuse in distress, but with her standoffish husband around, she refuses treatment. On a separate call at Chicago Med, Mills spots the same woman – now hospitalized – and in a rage he returns to the original apartment and assaults the husband, threatening to kill him if he hurts his wife again. The move frustrates Brett  not just because Mills’ actions could have consequences, but also because he lied to her about why he needed to visit the husband.

Severide continues to investigate the apartment and enlists the help of a friend in the Arson Department. She manages to take secret photos of the original file on Shay’s case, and after Dawson and Severide analyze every page, they identify several consistencies that suggest the burn patterns were manipulated using a trail of shredded paper.

When Will ‘Chicago Fire’ Return? Here’s When Season 12 Kicks Off Filming



Fans have been patiently waiting for the 12th season of Chicago Fire, which was announced back in April by NBC. 

The network renewed all three of the One Chicago shows at the time, including Chicago PD for season 11 and Chicago Med for season 9. 

Typically, new seasons of the dramas would’ve started in September as part of the network’s fall lineup, however, production on the shows was significantly delayed due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. The writers’ strike ended a bit before the actors’ strike, which meant that the writing staff was able to get back to work penning the scripts in October, however, things remained at a standstill until the SAG-AFTRA union negotiated a promising contract with the studios and allowed actors to get back to making shows and movies. 

Thankfully, with the strikes officially over, the shows are back in business. 

According to a Chicago Fire Extras post on Facebook, the drama set at Firehouse 51 will be kicking off filming on Monday, Nov. 27! 


And that means that we’re on track to get new episodes of the 12th season in 2024 as a premiere date has been announced as Wednesday, January 17.

With Chicago Fire back in business, it’s safe to say the sister shows are following suit—and we’ll have new episodes to watch sooner rather than later. 

CBS already unveiled its lineup for regularly scheduled programming, beating out all the other networks to the announcement, but if theirs is anything to go by, new content will be landing as soon as February. Some of your favorite sitcoms and dramas on CBS, including the NCIS franchise, Ghosts, and the FBI shows, will all be kicking off after the Super Bowl.
