The 40-year-old actor has starred in the hit series since 2012 but at the end of season nine fans were left hanging as he was caught in a capsized boat that exploded.

However his co-star Miranda Rae Mayo accidentally let it slip that Taylor's character, Lieutenant Kelly Severide, would make it out of the dangerous situation when the actress, who stars as firefighter Stella Kidd, shared a throwback picture from the set of the 1990 film Cry Baby, starring Johnny Depp and Amy Locane.

The picture featured the two on a blanket as director John Waters coached them through their kissing scenes, which have since become iconic.

Miranda shared it on her Story with the caption: "This is our lives," while tagging Taylor.
