Chicago Fire returns to screens on 22 September

The One Chicago franchise has become known for its annual multi-episode crossover events, which sees all three series come together to tell one story across three gripping hours of television. Sadly though, fans missed out in the 2020-21 season, as the pandemic made filming a sweeping three-show storyline simply not possible. 

Discussing it back in June, he said: "We've already started talking about ideas for it and to do one in the vein of Infection [the 2019 three-part crossover event], where it was three big episodes with all three shows represented in all three hours. That would be ideal."

The One Chicago franchise returns to screens Wednesday 22 September, beginning with Chicago Med at 8pm ET/PT, followed by sister shows Chicago Fire and Chicago PD at 9pm and 10pm, respectively.
