Chicago Fire showrunner Derek Haas has teased a major season finale plot for Kelly Severide and Stella Kidd.

The two have become a fan favorite, with their ship name Stellaride, and Derek revealed that there will be "a major Stellaride event right near the end of the season."

Earlier in season nine, the two - played by Taylor Kinney and Miranda Rae Mayo - spoke of going away together to the cabin.

Will fans see that romantic getaway?

Speaking to TVLine, Derek baited fans with a simple: "We haven’t been to the cabin in a while, have we? Hmmm."

Kelly and Stella were revealed to have met years prior at the training academy - when Kelly tried to woo her without realizing she was married - but when the firefighter joins Firehouse 51 they keep their past friendship a secret.

Over the seasons, their chemistry has become undeniable and as of season nine they are dating - with fans expecting a possible engagement sooner rather than later.

Is that the major event we will see on screen?
