If you recall the 11th season finale “Red Waterfall,” where Brett waits for life-changing news, and Herrmann encounters a psychic with a grave warning on a call. Later, Kidd finds a new lead on the Homeland Security case, then you are aware that there are many questions on your mind like, “When will the fans get to see the new episodes on Chicago Fire Season 12?”
While we understand your anticipation, we are regretful to inform you that the new season is not going to be on NBC in June 2023. The fans will have to wait for some more time if they want to watch the show on this streaming platform. As a result, we’ve compiled a list of everything that the fans should look forward to and know about while they wait and recall events from the previous seasons.
Here is everything we know so far about Chicago Fire Season 12 at Web News Observer!
Chicago Fire Season 12: When will the new season begin airing on NBC?
As of writing this, we can confirm to the readers that the potential release date for the 12th season hasn’t been disclosed, as the final episode of Chicago Fire Season 11 ended a few days ago, which makes it way too early to disclose this information. Moreover, the renewal for the 12th season was also confirmed a month ago, which means it will take time to even begin production this month alone.
But if we have to predict the potential release window, then it is expected to arrive in the fall of 2023, with September being the most likely broadcast schedule with the same time slot of 9/8c on the NBC network. In the meantime, the fans should wait patiently, stream the whole series if they haven’t already, and hope for the best outcome!
Take a look at the official renewal announcement of One Chicago as shared by Wolf Entertainment, below:
Chicago Fire Season 12 Production Status
The production of all three One Chicago television series is expected to start filming in July 2023, just like the prior season, after taking a few weeks off for the summer from other shows on the NBC network. The original production stage also takes time to complete some of the scripts before filming begins, so there is still a lot of time left for production to commence for the new season.
We would also like to mention that there is a slight possibility that the show might not even return to television screens this year!
This is because a lot of significant writers’ rooms have been on strike for a long time, which might affect their production and force large studio networks to put off their premieres. There is a potential that the show’s makers may only aim for release next year in order to start the production process without any obstacles until a good resolution is achieved for the writers to begin working on it.
Chicago Fire Season 12: What can the fans expect to see in the new season?
The next season has received a 22-episode order which is expected to air on a weekly basis. As not much hasn’t been disclosed about the new plotlines, it is intended to follow the plot from the final episode of the prior season, which follows the professional and personal lives of the firefighters and paramedics of Firehouse 51 as they risk their lives every day to save and protect the citizens of Chicago.
“I’m pleased to continue my four-decade relationship with Universal Television and NBC,” One Chicago creator Dick Wolf said in a statement. “All six shows [including the Law & Order franchise] 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.”
The main cast members among other recurring cast members who are speculated to return in the new season are as follows:
Taylor Kinney as Lieutenant Kelly Severide, Kara Killmer as Paramedic Sylvie Brett, David Eigenberg as Lieutenant Christopher Herrmann, Joe Miñoso as Firefighter Joe Cruz, Christian Stolte as Firefighter Randy “Mouch” McHolland, Miranda Rae Mayo as Lieutenant Stella Kidd, Alberto Rosende as Firefighter Blake Gallo, Daniel Kyri as Firefighter Darren Ritter, Hanako Greensmith as Paramedic Violet Mikami, and Eamonn Walker as Deputy District Chief Wallace Boden.
These cast members are subject to change because the network may subsequently make announcements about other cast members who will join or leave the series. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens next.
“We understand the emotional connection our audience has with these characters and we can’t wait to bring more of their stories to the forefront next season,” Lisa Katz, the president of scripted programming at NBCUniversal and Streaming, said in a statement. Further adding, “A huge thank you to Dick and his amazing team who are the masters of producing incredibly compelling television week after week.”
On the other hand, the fans want Jesse Spencer to return as Matt Casey in the new season after seeing him return for a short cameo in the present season. “The idea when I left the show was that if it was appropriate and it would work with the storyline they wanted to do, I would be open—and they would be open—to bringing Casey back,” Spencer tells NBC Insider.
“The storyline [in Episode 18] does allude to Casey sort of eyeing whether he could actually move back to 51. Can he potentially, in the future, rekindle his relationship with Brett [Kara Killmer] and start that fire again? We’re ‘gonna have to see. Casey’s looking at it; it’s a potential thing, but we just don’t know right now. We’ll leave that to the future. We’ll throw it to the gods and see what they say.”
Chicago Fire is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Wolf Entertainment. Executive Producers are Dick Wolf, Derek Haas, Andrea Newman, Michael Gilvary, Reza Tabrizi, Arthur Forney, and Peter Jankowski.
