Production

Development

The series pilot, co-written by creators Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, was filmed in Chicago and, according to an NBC representative, the series would continue to be filmed there.[47] Producer John L. Roman was involved from the beginning having worked with the Chicago Fire Department and Deputy District Chief Steve "Chik" Chikerotis on Backdraft.[48] Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel made an appearance in the series' pilot episode. Emanuel stated: "It's easier being mayor than playing mayor. I told them I'd do it under one condition: the TV show is making an investment to the Firefighters' Widows and Orphans Fund."[49]

The title "Chicago Fire" sparked some confusion in the show's first season due to it duplicating the name of a local professional soccer team, the Chicago Fire Soccer Club (later renamed Chicago Fire FC). Actor Taylor Kinney has said "If you (say) 'We're working on Chicago Fire,' they ask you if you're a soccer player."[50] Producer Dick Wolf hoped that fans of the team might watch the show.[50] The Chicago Fire sports team accepted the shared name and showed the series premiere on October 2, 2012, at Toyota Park after a game with the Philadelphia Union.[51]

The network placed an order for the series in May 2012.[52] After receiving an additional script order in October, Chicago Fire was picked up for a full season on November 8, 2012.[53][54] On January 29, 2013, Chicago Fire had its episode total increased from 22 to 23.[55] One week later, on February 6, 2013, Chicago Fire received one more episode, giving it a total of 24 episodes for season one.[56] The pilot episode had an early release at NBC.com, before the series' premiere on television.[57]

On November 9, 2015, NBC renewed the series for a fifth season.[58][59] The season premiered on October 11, 2016.[60]

On May 9, 2018, NBC renewed the series for a seventh season,[61] which premiered on September 26, 2018.[62] On February 26, 2019, NBC renewed the series for an eighth season,[63] which premiered on September 25, 2019.[64] In February 2020, the series was renewed for its ninth, tenth, and eleventh season.[65] The tenth season premiered on September 22, 2021.[66] The eleventh season premiered on September 21, 2022.[67] On April 10, 2023, NBC renewed the series for a twelfth season,[2] which premiered on January 17, 2024.[3] On March 21, 2024, NBC renewed the series for a thirteenth season.[4]

Filming

The building used in the show for the firehouse exteriors is a working Chicago Fire Department firehouse, and is the headquarters of Engine 18, located at 1360 South Blue Island Avenue at Maxwell Street, between 13th & Racine. Housed here is ALS Engine 18, 2–2–1 (Deputy District Chief – 1st District), 2–1–21 (1st District Chief), 6–4–16 (High-Rise Response Unit), and ALS Ambulance 65. The interiors of Firehouse 51 are filmed at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios. The station house used for exteriors in Chicago PD is just a few blocks away at 949 West Maxwell Street at Morgan Street (interiors likewise filmed at Cinespace).

Chicago artist and retired firefighter Lee J. Kowalski's oil paintings of fire scenes can be spotted in several episodes.

Molly's, a small bar owned by Herrmann, Dawson and Mouch, was filmed at Lotties in Bucktown.[68][69] Filming no longer takes place on location to avoid disrupting business. Instead, the interior and exterior surroundings were recreated at Cinespace.[70]

In November 2012, WGN-TV reported a plane crash at 29th and Martin Luther King Drive on their morning newscast and showed live footage for a few minutes before realizing it was merely a set piece staged for Chicago Fire and not an actual emergency situation.[71]

On March 13, 2020, Universal Television shut down production on the series due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[72]

Production on the series was temporarily halted on September 14, 2022, after a shooting occurred near the set.[73]
