Season 10 of ‘Chicago Fire’ is finally here, and it’s going to be the epitome of intensity. EP Derek Haas foreshadowed the ‘harrowing’ aftermath of the Severide and Cruz incident, as well as a ‘life-altering’ 200th episode.
Last season’s Chicago Fire ended on a cliffhanger: Severide and Cruz were trapped underwater, and their lives were in risk. On September 22, when Season 10 premieres, Chicago Fire will disclose their fates. Showrunner Derek Haas gave HollywoodLife the EXCLUSIVE scoop on what to anticipate from Severide and Cruz. “You’ll have to wait and see,” Derek teased, “but it’ll be harrowing, I guarantee you.”
Casey and Brett eventually confronted their feelings for each other in the season 9 finale. Season 10 will usher in a new chapter for the relationship, one that will not always be easy. Derek explained, “It’s Chicago Fire, so it’s never easy.” “In Season 10, they’re going to have some obstacles coming up soon.”
“That’s always a concern, but when the bells go off, they are total professionals,” Derek said when asked if being together will affect their work life. They set aside everything to concentrate on the victims and save lives.”
Stella passed her lieutenant’s exam, and Severide and Stella are now engaged. Is a job change on the cards for her? “In the early part of the season, Kidd is going to have a lot going on,” he said. “Girls on Fire will have a significant impact on her life in the near future.”
Cruz is expecting her first child. Many admirers have been speculating if he’ll give his child the name Otis. “Wait and see!” says the author. Derek made a joke.
In the tenth season, the show will air its 200th episode. Derek has enormous ideas for the Chicago Fire characters, according to him. “In the 200th episode, huge, life-altering events occur. We’re filming it right now, and it’s going to be difficult,” Derek told HollywoodLife. Chicago Fire airs on NBC on Wednesdays at 9 p.m.
