The last episode of season 6 was aired on May 10. The creators of the show decided to take a new route and finish the season about a week earlier than they usually do. Season 5’s finale titled “My Miracle” aired on May 16, 2017, and season 4 ended with “Superhero”, which was broadcast on May 17, 2016.

So, why did they make a change?

Well, this year, Chicago Fire concluded the season with a two-hour finale instead of its traditional one-hour conclusion. That is why we had to say ‘goodbye’ to the show a week early.

The two-hour finally consisted of two episodes called “One For The Ages” and “The Grand Gesture” in which an important decision laid ahead of two of the main characters, Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymund).

But for those who feel like they can’t get enough of their favorite characters, NBC tonight has good news. The network renewed all three Chicago series. Chicago Fire, the oldest one of them, was picked up for a seventh season.

But who will be back considering that all five original cast members —  Jesse Spencer, Taylor Kinney, Eamonn Walker, Monica Raymund and David Eigenberg — had six-year contracts that expired at the end of the current season?

Rumor has it the producers of the show have already approached leads Spencer and Kinney about the renewal of their contracts, and they both were happy to sign one-year extensions.


But none of the other three actors had been approached yet. There have been some speculations that the most prominent female cast member Raymund might not be back on the show.

But we will see whether there is some truth to this or not when the shooting of the season 7 begins.
