Chicago Fire Update: Only One Will Not Return

The “Chicago Fire” season two finale shocked viewers off their feet with an explosion to remember. An explosion that left all of the members of Firehouse 51, save for Battalion Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker), trapped inside a burning building, leaving viewers and fans to ask the burning question if anyone will make it out alive. According to  TV Line, showrunner Matt Olmstead,  has confirmed that everyone will be saved, except for one. Warning! This article contains spoilers for the upcoming third season of NBC’s “Chicago Fire.” Read only if you want to learn more about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) spoilers for “Chicago Fire” Season 3.

Now, the only question to ask is this: Which character will leave the firehouse for good? According to Olmstead, the character that will be saying goodbye is the one whose loss will shake the very foundations of Firehouse 51 and will force Kelley Severide (Taylor Kinney) and Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) to be closer than ever. Many might think that this premise is not new, as the pilot episode of the series featured a death of Andy Darden, which sorely tested the working dynamics between Severide and Casey. However, this death will be different, as the fans and viewers will get to join in on the grief, as the death will involve a character in which viewers have heavily invested in.


The viewers and fans of  “Chicago Fire” will be waiting eagerly for the new season to premiere in September 2014 to know the answers. However, in interviews, it seems like there have been some hints and clues that fans are eagerly picking up on. With the announcement that this character death will bring Casey and Severide closer, it is safe to say that both firemen will be returning this fall. Another fireman who will not be kicking the bucket is Otis (Yuri Sadarov), as he reveals to TV Guide that his character will definitely be returning to see another day.

This revelations have effectively crossed out Boden (Eamonn Walker), Casey (Jesse Spencer), Severide (Taylor Kinney) and Otis (Yuri Sadarov).  All that the fans can do know is to sit tight, wait for September 23, 2014 and cross their fingers in the hopes that their favorite character returns to grace the halls of Firehouse 51.

In the meantime, keep the discussion rolling! Who else do you think will make it, and who do you think will not?

Feel the heat once again with “Chicago Fire” on Tuesday, September 23, 2014, at 10:00 p.m. on NBC. For more updates about your favorite TV shows, including episode recaps and spoilers, check Movie News Guide (MNG) regularly.
