After the events that brought in motion the search for Katie it is clear that the team has lot on their hands. This is the lowdown of what went on in last night’s episode.
Severide, still stinging from Keeler’s release, heeds his impatience with Chicago P.D. and decides to exact justice on his own. He recruits a few others on the down low, eager for revenge on the man who kidnapped Katie. What he doesn’t expect, though, is a visit from his dad, once again experiencing marital problems and shocked when he hears Keeler’s free. Benny asks to get involved, but Severide shuts him out.
Otis catches wind of Severide’s secret plan and, heartbroken and frustrated, demands to help the cause. As Severide explains why Otis should stay back, Lindsay interrupts them and asks if they planning to find Keeler for themselves? Severide tries to turn the subject but is warned that if they take matters into their own hands…it won’t be pretty.
Dawson rejoins the firehouse as Shay’s partner again but coming back feeling awkward and defeated and still resting her injured ankle. Her return comes at the same time the new candidate and her fellow trainee Jones comes to the firehouse. Her first day gets off to a rough start when she cracks a saw blade during a rescue attempt. She annoys the firehouse even more by demanding someone on Squad run drills with her during down time, a request Herrmann reroutes to a more candidate-appropriate task: mop duty in the showers. Making matters worse, after Jones spies Dawson and Casey together, she warns Dawson not to sabotage her candidacy. Dawson takes the affront personally and makes the same argument Herrmann, Mouch and Cruz echo to him in private – Jones is entitled and cocky. Casey agrees, but believes she deserves a chance nonetheless.
But Jones’ real issue is talking; in an attempt to gain respect and build rapport, she teases the other squad members. This catches the watchful eye of Severide who reminds her of the two main tenants of being a candidate: do your job and keep your mouth shut. Jones is failing point number two.
Mouch in this episode has issues with Connie, Boden’s prickly secretary, results in the relocation of his prized possession, the couch. Its absence drives him crazy, and he seeks advice from Boden, only to have the chief shrug in response. So he makes a peace offering in the form of a small cactus and a full apology. His couch magically reappears in its rightful place a few hours later.
A major high-rise fire sends 51 downtown and seems like the perfect opportunity for Jones to redeem herself. With the elevators on the fritz, the whole squad hikes up 18 flights of stairs carrying all their gear, only to find a raging fire within and a wealth of victims inside. Jones struggles to keep her cool as she learns the differences between reality and training. With Casey and Herrmann’s help, she manages to make it through, but the experience serves as a humble reminder of her place on Squad.
Later, everyone ends up at Molly’s for a relaxing pint – until Lindsay snakes her way over to Severide to deliver some unsettling news. CPD found Keeler’s vehicle with the keys in the ignition… and no Keeler. He disappeared.

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.
And the good news is that Taylor Kinney’s Kelly Severide is making a comeback after a ten-month hiatus. Back in January, the actor announced a personal leave of absence from the series, but fans are surely eager to see him back on the firefighter drama once again!
One Chicago Shows Score a Massive Renewal at NBC
Don’t worry, your favorite One Chicago shows aren’t going anywhere anytime soon!
As the 2022-2023 TV season winds down, TV networks are already looking to the future, and the upcoming 2023-2024 broadcast season.
Per TVLine, Chicago Fire has been renewed for season 12, Chicago PD for season 11, and Chicago Med for season 9.
