There’s no need to worry about Chicago Fire being cancelled right now since the Wednesday night drama has already been renewed through season 11. Could that be the final year for this NBC series or, will the ratings stay strong enough to keep it on the air for many years to come? Stay tuned.
A first-responder drama series, Chicago Fire stars Jesse Spencer, Taylor Kinney, Eamonn Walker, Kara Killmer, David Eigenberg, Christian Stolte, Miranda Rae Mayo, Joe Minoso, Alberto Rosende, Daniel Kyri, and Hanako Greensmith. This series revolves around the personal and professional lives of the firefighters, rescue squad, and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51. Captain Matthew Casey (Spencer) and Lt. Kelly Severide (Kinney) run the Truck and Rescue Squad and Battalion Chief Wallace Boden (Walker) keeps his house running smoothly. These leaders and their team risk their lives week in and week out to save and protect the citizens of the Windy City. The series also features crossovers with Chicago Med and Chicago PD.
