Sadly, you'll have to wait a few weeks to find out what's happening with your Firehouse 51 family.

Mikami Gets Emotional About Losing Hawkins | NBC’s Chicago Fire

There's a lot happening on Chicago Fire right now. Cindy (Robyn Coffin) was diagnosed with lung cancer, and while her surgery to remove it went well, she still has to undergo chemotherapy and radiation. Emma Jacobs (Caitlin Carver) made a surprising return, but Violet (Hanako Greensmith) swiftly took her down with a little help from Hawkins (Jimmy Nicholas). Meanwhile, Brett (Kara Killmer) is back in the dating game—as is Gallo (Alberto Rosende) after that awkward run with Herrmann's (David Eigenberg) niece—but both of their recent flings fizzled out. 

How to Watch

Watch Chicago Fire Wednesdays at 9/8c on NBC and next day on Peacock.

All this to say: Viewers have many questions about what's coming next. But sadly, they'll have to wait a few weeks for answers. Chicago Fire is going on a brief hiatus for a few weeks. Here's what you need to know about when new episodes are coming back. 

Is a new Chicago Fire episode on tonight? (January 25, February 1, and February 8) 

No new episodes of Chicago Fire will air the weeks of January 25, February 1, and February 8, 2023. 

When will new Chicago Fire episodes resume? 

As of now, new Chicago Fire episodes will resume on Wednesday, February 15, 2023. 

So, what can fans expect when the show returns? On the Cindy front, Chicago Fire's co-showrunner Andrea Newman told NBC Insider, "It is going to be a rough road for the whole Herrmann family as Cindy battles lung cancer. There's a tough fight ahead, with no short cuts or easy solutions, but the Herrmann family, and the 51 family, will come together to help in all sorts of ways as the situation progresses." 

"Unfortunately, we weren't able to get the margins clean," the doctor told Herrmann in the latest episode about Cindy's lung cancer surgery. "She made it through the surgery well, but we weren't able to get all the cancer out. We removed what we could, but we found some in the lymph nodes, too, which means we have a fight ahead of us. Next step: chemotherapy and radiation." 

Watch Chicago Fire Wednesdays at 9/8c on NBC. While you wait for new episodes, catch up on Peacock now.
