Chicago Fire season 10 premiere date confirmed

NBC has officially announced the Chicago Fire season 10 premiere date, confirming when the crime drama will return.

Chicago Fire season 10 will start on Wednesday, September 22 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, in the same time slot as last season. NBC will continue to air an all-One Chicago night of programming on Wednesdays.

The season will have a big question to answer, as season 9 left off with a cliffhanger in which multiple members of Firehouse 51 ended up trapped underwater and running out of air. Among the characters whose fate was left unknown was fan favorite Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney). Will Severide or any of his rescue squad colleagues be killed off in the 10th season premiere? So far, there have been no clues one way or the other.

However, viewers know that Hanako Greensmith is now a series regular as paramedic Violet Mikami. Greensmith was brought back in season 9 as a recurring player when actress Adriyan Rae left Chicago Fire for personal reasons; after fans seemed to embrace Violet as part of the team, producers decided to keep Greensmith on and promoted her to the main cast for the upcoming season.

The Chicago Fire season 10 premiere date is the second major piece of news for the show in the last two weeks. The series also landed a new syndication deal with MyNetworkTV, further adding to the number of places One Chicago fans can watch reruns (and adding another revenue stream for Universal Television). It will join the MyNetworkTV lineup less than a week before new episodes resume on NBC.
