If this episode didn’t have your heart beating in every minute of the run time…there’s something very wrong with you.
When we last left Casey, he was being searched by Nesbitt’s team when they checked his phone for any wire tap. Turns out Casey was clean. It was revealed that he tossed the wire in the bathroom before the men frisked him. Either way, when he meets up with Voight and Dawson in the surveillance van, he informs them that Nesbitt and his associates didn’t discuss anything of value.
Back at 51, Rice apologizes for how he reacted to Severide’s question on ducking the call. Yet things between the Squad and Truck have not died down especially during a call to a gas leak. It was the decisions from both sides that divided the team even further. Chief Boden even asked if the entire firehouse can function properly. Severide gets to the bottom of this by asking the equipment specialist if Rice ever brought his equipment. Turns out he never took any equipment to the shop. In Boden’s office, Severide calls in Rice and removes his friend from Squad. Rice finally confesses to ducking calls in an effort to remain safe for his family, but the excuse fails to impress Boden or Severide. With Rice now off the team Boden announces that Cruz will assume his spot on Squad and Otis will drive the truck…Finally.
Just as thing got a bit confusing with the change in sides, a call sends them out to a fire in progress with a handful of fellow firefighters and civilians trapped inside. Severide and Dawson both rush to save the victims, but soon find themselves trapped and with only one working oxygen mask. Boden demands that the rest of the team remain outside while he goes in for Dawson and Severide. Chief orders a fall back on the search. Cruz, certain that they should wait longer, threatens the chief with physical harm unless he stands down the order. Other firefighters pull him away, and the squads spray water onto the building, ending any hope for those inside. But moments later Cruz is vindicated when Boden, Severide and Dawson get out alive and unharmed.
Chief Tiberg awaits 51’s return from the fire and asks to know the name of the culprit who threatened the other station chief with violence. But before Cruz can confess, Otis steps forward. And then Severide. And Mouch. Soon the whole team, both Squad and Truck, confesses to threatening the chief. Tiberg exits without a name and Boden suggests he stop asking. Regardless, this moment reunites the firehouse, and the whole gang heads to Molly’s to celebrate. They’re joined by Roman from P.D. who takes a liking to Brett… and at the end of the night the two wind up at Roman’s apartment.
Still concerned about the situation at Stilletos, Casey comes clean to Boden about his undercover assignment with Chicago P.D.’s Intelligence unit and requests to take off his next shift. Voight and Antonio provide support for his cause, explaining how Stilletos acts as a criminal front… but the discussion occurs in plain sight, where a spying Nesbitt sees the whole thing. The next time Casey visits the club, Nesbitt suggests Casey’s collusion with the police, and the lieutenant denies any association. Nesbitt plays dumb despite the lies and asks Casey to meet him later that night.
Meanwhile, Chili receives the prototype for Chileeze and it sparks a great idea from Herrmann – they need a celebrity spokesperson. This leads them to a hotel lobby, and with a great assist from Otis, they trap Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen in the elevator. Chili gives him the Chileeze pitch and Pippen agrees to participate. Everything appears to line up for an awesome business venture, until Herrmann and Chili make a devastating discovery that another competitor beat them to the punch. Well, it’s back to the drawing board.
The end of Dawson’s night takes a different spin. Feeling sick to her stomach all day, Dawson leaves her shift at Molly’s early and winds up in the bathroom with a pregnancy test in her hand. She stares at the results and rushes to Casey’s apartment… where she finds the door already open. Dawson enters and calls out his name, but no one responds. As she walks through the apartment, she notices signs of some kind of struggle, and soon finds the likely result – a woman on the floor, unmoving, next to a rug soaked in her blood. It’s Katya from Stilletos found dead at his apartment. Now the dying question we have this summer…where’s Casey?
What happened to him and what will become of Dawson now that she’s carrying his baby? What will happen to the new Firehouse 51 with switch ups and changes all over? All these questions when Chicago Fire returns for Season 4 this fall!

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.
