Plot

The show explores the lives, both professional and personal, of the firefighters, rescue personnel and paramedics of the Chicago Fire Department at the fictional Firehouse 51, home of the fictional Engine Company 51, Truck Company 81, Rescue Squad Company 3, Battalion 25 and Ambulance 61. Following the death of veteran Firefighter Andrew Darden, loyalties fracture and divide as Lieutenant Matthew Casey, officer-in-charge of Truck Company 81, and Lieutenant Kelly Severide, officer-in-charge of Rescue Squad Company 3, blame each other for the death of their long-time friend and colleague.

New to the station is Peter Mills, a Firefighter Candidate assigned to Truck Company 81, who is following in the footsteps of his late father and trying to find his place over the objections of his mother.

Alongside the firefighters are paramedics Gabriela Dawson and Leslie Shay. Shay dies in the third-season premiere "Always". Some new faces appear in the firehouse as the series progresses. Under the leadership of 25th Battalion Chief Wallace Boden, the firehouse family faces life or death decisions every day, but they treat each other like family, looking out for each other no matter what happens.

Crossovers

Production

Development

The series pilot, co-written by creators Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, was filmed in Chicago and, according to an NBC representative, the series would continue to be filmed there. [34] Producer John L. Roman was involved from the beginning having worked with the Chicago Fire Department and Deputy District Chief Steve "Chik" Chikerotis on Backdraft. [35] Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel made an appearance in the series' pilot episode. Emanuel stated: "It's easier being mayor than playing mayor. I told them I'd do it under one condition: the TV show is making an investment to the Firefighters' Widows and Orphans Fund." [36]

The title "Chicago Fire" has sparked some confusion in the show's first season in regards to it being shared with a local major professional soccer team; the Chicago Fire Soccer Club (now called Chicago Fire FC). Actor Taylor Kinney has said "If you (say) 'We're working on "Chicago Fire,"' they ask you if you're a soccer player". [37] Producer Dick Wolf hoped that fans of the team might watch the show. [37] The Chicago Fire team themselves have accepted the shared name with the show and have shown the series premiere on October 2, 2012 at Toyota Park after a game with the Philadelphia Union. [38]

The network placed an order for the series in May 2012. [39] After receiving an additional script order in October, Chicago Fire was picked up for a full season on November 8, 2012. [40] [41] On January 29, 2013, Chicago Fire had its episode total increased from 22 to 23. [42] One week later, on February 6, 2013, Chicago Fire received one more episode, giving it a total of 24 episodes for season one. [43] The pilot episode had an early release at NBC.com, before the series' premiere on television. [44]

On November 9, 2015, NBC renewed the series for a fifth season. [45] [46] The season premiered on October 11, 2016. [47]

On May 9, 2018, NBC renewed the series for a seventh season, [48] which premiered on September 26, 2018. [49] On February 26, 2019, NBC renewed the series for an eighth season, [50] which premiered on September 25, 2019. [51] In February 2020, the series was renewed for a ninth, tenth and eleventh season. [2]

Filming

The building used in the show for the firehouse exteriors is a working Chicago Fire Department firehouse, and is the headquarters of Engine 18, located at 1360 South Blue Island Avenue at Maxwell Street, between 13th & Racine. Housed here is ALS Engine 18, 2–2–1 (Deputy District Chief – 1st District), 2–1–21 (1st District Chief), 6–4–16 (High-Rise Response Unit), and ALS Ambulance 65. The interiors of Firehouse 51 are filmed at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios. The station house used for exteriors in Chicago PD is just a few blocks away at 949 West Maxwell Street at Morgan Street (interiors likewise filmed at Cinespace).

Chicago artist and retired firefighter Lee J. Kowalski's oil paintings of fire scenes can be spotted in several episodes.

Molly's, a small bar owned by Herrmann, Dawson and Mouch, was filmed at Lotties in Bucktown. [52] [53] Filming no longer takes place on location to avoid disrupting business. Instead, the interior and exterior surroundings were recreated at Cinespace. [54]

In November 2012, WGN-TV reported a plane crash at 29th and Martin Luther King Drive on their morning newscast and showed live footage for a few minutes before realizing it was merely a set piece pre-staged for Chicago Fire and not an actual emergency situation. [55]

On March 13, 2020, Universal Television shut down production on the series due to the COVID-19 pandemic. [56]

Reception

The first season holds a score of 49 out of 100 on Metacritic, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[ citation needed ]
