About the show

Chicago Fire is an ongoing American television action and procedural drama series, and the original show in the franchise. It was created by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas and produced by Wolf Television and Universal Television. It has been on the air for four seasons following its original premiere in 2012, with the current fifth chapter debuting on October 11, 2016.

The series follows both personal and professional issues in the lives of the firefighters, paramedics and rescue squad members at one of Chicago`s stations. Facing the station shutdown, death in the family, union issues, romantic involvements, addictions - all against a backdrop of the dangerous incidents that the crews have to deal with on a day-to-day basis, sometimes cheating death in the process. The star cast includes Jesse Spencer, Taylor Kinney, Monica Raymund, Charlie Barnett, Dora Madison, Kara Kilmer and Lauren German.

Current season and future prospects

All of the series` stars returned in the fifth chapter, and a lot more of female firefighter Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) is featured since she`s been promoted to series regular. Casey has finally made his choice and showed up at Dawson’s house in the last moments of the season four finale, and their relationship is getting solidified in the new season. At the same time, Severide continues to explore his new relationship with Kidd to see where it goes.

Even though the critics` reviews of Chicago Fire have been mixed or average, the series has steadily held the prime-time viewers` attention, resulting in excellent viewership numbers. The current season is doing well ratings-wise, having debuted to 7.52 million viewers. The show`s been noted for solid acting, top-notch storytelling and realistic portrayal of emotions, but on the other hand, it has also been criticized for lack of character development and an unoriginal approach to the subject. Chicago Fire`s almost certainly getting a sixth season commission, so please stay tuned, and we`ll inform you when it is renewed.
