Casey meets his niece Violet at a café and discovers that she is experiencing trouble at school and at home. Shocked, Casey follows up with his sister Christie to see if he can help and she assures him that she can manage just fine, the family’s just going through a rough financial period. But her lack of specifics piques Casey’s curiosity and he visits Jim, Christie’s husband, at his firm downtown where Jim drops the big news – he and Christie are in the midst of a divorce. Except Casey suspects Jim of withholding more information when his secretary bounds in and acts a little too casual.

The lieutenant’s concern for his sister’s family boils over into 51 when he borrows Dawson for advice and leaves Herrmann with menial candidate duties. This causes resentment and an irate Herrmann mentions it to Boden – the two men clash in a difference of opinion and, as the chief, Boden wins out. Later, Herrmann’s frustration reaches a peak when he notices another mistake from Dawson – except she admits to making the mistake on purpose to test whether Herrmann and the squad would treat her like a normal candidate. After a big argument, Dawson requests to shadow Herrmann instead of Casey – and Herrmann agrees. It seems her true test is yet to come.

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.

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.
