‘Chicago Fire’ is an action-drama television series that revolves around the firefighters, rescue squad, and paramedics of Firehouse 51 of the Chicago Fire Department, carefully interwoven with their personal lives. The reel life show is proven all the more profound with the health care and other essential workers working around the clock, fighting as warriors on the front-lines of the global pandemic in real life.
The eighth season of fan-favorite drama ended abruptly amid the COVID-19 pandemic driving it to wrap up three episodes early, leaving plenty of unanswered questions looming about and making the audience wonder where the next installment will be headed. If you are wondering about ‘Chicago Fire’ season 9 too, worry no more, we have all the tea right here!
Chicago Fire Season 9 Release Date
‘Chicago Fire’ season 9 is all set to premiere on November 11, 2020, at 9 pm ET on NBC. It is not when fans would normally expect to see Firehouse 51 return to duty but with the show being among the pack of hundreds of others whose production was shut down because of a rapid soar in the number of COVID-19 patients, it’s impressive that the delay is only 2 months.
Chicago Fire Season 9 Cast: Who is in it?
The central characters are all set to return for the ninth season. The returning cast includes Jesse Spencer as Captain Matthew Casey, Taylor Kinney as Lieutenant Kelly Severide, Eamonn Walker as Chief Wallace Boden, David Eigenberg as Christopher Herrmann, Yuri Sardarov as Brian “Otis” Zvonecek, Joe Minoso as Joe Cruz, Christian Stolte as Randy “Mouch” McHolland, Kara Killmer as Sylvie Brett, and Miranda Rae Mayo as Stella Kidd.
The cast member that won’t be making a comeback in this season is Annie Ilonzeh as paramedic Emily Foster as producers have decided to write off her character from the show. Meanwhile, Daniel Kyri, who plays Firefighter Darren Ritter, has been promoted to a series regular.
Chicago Fire Season 9 Plot: What can it be About?
Cut short due to production halt, the storylines taking place in the last three episodes will be developed as season-starting storylines for the next installment. Show’s creator Derek Haas mentioned in an interview that he’ll be taking forward the Girls on Fire storyline for Kidd in season 9. Following a huge factory fire and a harrowing attack at a juvenile detention center in season 8, Brett has officially returned to Chicago after breaking off her engagement with Kyle.
Season 9 might explore Casey-Brett’s relationship further as they are growing closer throughout Brett’s birth mother’s ordeal. The show is all set to turn up the heat on the possibility of a career change for Foster. Her long-brewing desire to return to medical school might take a definite turn this time around. It is safe to say that Brett along with other cast members might be put through the emotional wringer, again, in the ninth season.
