Season 12 of the hit TV show, Chicago Fire, is set to bring fans another rollercoaster ride of emotions. In a recent interview with TV Line, showrunner Andrea Newman shared some intriguing details about what viewers can expect from the upcoming season.
Newman revealed that there will be a time jump in the premiere episode, taking the viewers and the crew of Firehouse 51 on an exciting journey together. She hinted at big changes for the 51 gang, leaving fans wondering where their favorite characters will be emotionally, mentally, and even physically.
She specifically mentioned Uri (who played Otis), David Eigenberg (who played Herrmann), and Kara Killmer (who played Brett) as the individuals who welcomed her the most. Being a part of the show has also changed Mayo as a person. She shared that she has become more curious, especially about how people in the firefighting profession operate. The challenging part for her, however, has been adjusting to the cultural differences between actors and firefighters.
While actors love to talk about their feelings and process, the firefighters she met have a different approach – they value family, helping others, and being part of a community.
With the show's history of dramatic storylines, unexpected twists, and heartfelt moments, there's no doubt that viewers will be hooked from the very first episode. So mark your calendars and get ready for another intense season of Chicago Fire, starting on January 17th on NBC.
