Exciting news, Chi-Hards: All shows in the One Chicago family have been renewed for the 2023-2024 season on NBC. That means you'll be getting new episodes of Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago P.D. each week starting in the fall. Hooray! 

How to Watch

Watch Chicago Fire on NBC and Peacock.

“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.”

So, what all do we know about Chicago Fire Season 12? Well, very little right now, but we'll be keeping you posted as new information comes in. Keep checking back here for the latest details. 

Read, below, everything to know about Chicago Fire Season 12. 

When is the Chicago Fire Season 12 premiere date?

Fall 2023! No specific premiere date has been announced yet.

Who will be in the Chicago Fire Season 12 cast?

No changes to the Chicago Fire cast have been announced at this time. 

“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. “A huge thank you to Dick and his amazing team who are the masters of producing incredibly compelling television week after week.”

What will happen in Chicago Fire Season 12? 

At this point, storylines for Chicago Fire Season 12 are up in the air. We'll have to see where things end with Season 11. 

If fans have anything to say about it, though, they'd like more Jesse Spencer, who returned as Matt Casey for Season 11, Episode 18. His appearance was just for one episode, but it's left Chi-Hards begging for more. 

And Spencer is game if the cards fall right. "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."
