Last week we saw Casey having it against his brother-in-law for the pain he caused against his sister and the hardships she had to ensue. Casey barges into Jim’s office ready to rumble, only Jim sends him back with surprising news it turns out that Christie co-signed every document authorizing the asset transfers. So with Newhouse’s help, Christie secures a solid lawyer, but he warns that a battle like this often ends poorly and without full compensation. Christie takes this to heart and shocks Casey by deciding to accept the settlement rather than fight it out with her soon-to-be ex. But his niece’s fear and undeserved guilt pushes Casey to continue, and he requests Newhouse to dig deeper – and finds that Jim’s mistress has a warrant out for her arrest in Alabama. Casey takes this evidence to Jim and pressures him to do right by his daughter… or risk losing his mistress and his money.
Money’s on Newhouse’s mind when he enlists a reluctant Mills to help him with a recovery side job involving a stolen dog. Mills stands guard and suspects the worst when gunshots fire while Newhouse sprints from a house with the dog in his arms. The true dog’s owner pays Newhouse handsomely for the risk and Mills feels uncomfortable with the whole deal… until Newhouse hands over his cut from the job. It’s not all glory, though – Newhouse later takes a blindside beating from a hooded man that leaves him bleeding and reeling from the man’s threat: he knows where to find Newhouse.
Back on the job, Severide and Herrmann perform a balancing act to save a woman’s son from a balcony railing disaster, but at the hospital police take him away from her, pointing to a past case of child abuse. When she begs Brett for assistance at 51, Severide denies the mother any slack and warns Brett about getting too close to victims. Brett advocates the opposite, intent that the mother deserves a second chance. She rallies Severide and they visit the mom and discover everything in order with zero evidence of an abusive household. But even a good word with the overworked Child Protective Services lands them in a bureaucratic stalemate… until Brett demands they take action. In a huge win for Brett’s morale, CPS rules in the mother’s favor and reunites the child with his mom. The good vibes continue for Brett when Severide asks her on an impromptu trip to Vegas. She turns him down… did she just miss an opportunity? I say nice job Brett you deserve better. His name is Mills…just saying.
Opportunity knocks for Dawson, too as Herrmann pushes her to the limit, forcing her to train on frustrating drills she already learned at the academy. After a succession of exhausting activities, Dawson snaps and pleads with Herrmann to allow her to do her job a chance she receives during a joint effort with a police matter that requires her to help break down a door. Herrmann calls on her to bust it down and, despite her earlier frustration, all the training pays off. She nails it.
Casey receives a payoff too when all his pressure on Jim results in a major about-face – not only does Jim double the child support payments, he also covers his daughter’s tuition and takes their house off the market. Despite all the good news, Casey elects to keep his methods a secret from Christie and Violet.
Meanwhile, in Vegas (or if you didn’t pay attention to the table it said Horseshoe in Hammond, IN) Severide’s down to his last $75 at the craps table when he discovers a good luck charm in the form of guest star Serinda Swan of Graceland. With his incessant urging, she scores assists him at the table and scores big on two rolls of the dice. The crowd erupts and Severide kisses her impulsively and she kisses back…dang man. He’s still got it. Damn you Severide!!!
Well we are off next week because of the election but in two weeks its the ultimate crossover beginning with our show and continuing Wednesday with Law And Order SVU and Chicago PD. Here’s a sneak peak and we’ll see you in two weeks.
One Chicago Shows Announce 2024 Premiere Dates
It’s finally happening—our favorite One Chicago shows are coming home to us!
Chihards, mark your calendars and get ready to sit down in front of the TV on January 17 because that’s when Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD will make their highly-anticipated and long-awaited premieres!
It’s truly beginning to feel a lot like Christmas… though I hope that turning around new episodes doesn’t mean that the actors will have to work through the holidays.

Chicago Med returns for season 9, Fire for season 12, and Med for season 11.
Of course, the full NBC 2024 lineup will kick off on Jan 1 with America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League, which means they are wasting no time getting back into the swing of things following the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike delays.
Law & Order franchises will have their moment on Thursday, Jan 18 with Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime.
Part 1 of The Voice returns on Feb. 26, along with BC’s new Deal or No Deal spinoff, Deal or No Deal Island.
Quantum Leap and Magnum P.I., Lopez vs. Lopez, The Weakest Link, Password, That’s My Jam and The Wall currently don’t have a premiere date.
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.
Fans will also be delighted to know that Dick Wolf’s other shows, Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime have also been renewed.
“I’m pleased to continue my four-decade relationship with Universal Television and NBC,” Dick Wolf said in a statement. “All six shows being picked up again is the ultimate accolade to our incredible casts, producers and writers. I’d also like to thank our loyal fans who have kept our NBC shows on the air for what will be a cumulative 84 seasons.”
Renewals and cancelations are a big deal, with many audiences patiently awaiting verdicts for their favorite dramas.
