It's not known why the franchise is taking another break so soon after returning from the month-long hiatus caused by NBC's coverage of the Winter Olympics, although some have speculated that it could be down to the showrunners needing more time to finish post-production work on the episodes.

In the latest instalment of the firefighter drama, it was revealed that Kara Killmer, who plays Sylvie Brett, would be bowing out of the show indefinitely.

Elsewhere, viewers also saw Miranda Rae Mayo's Stella Kidd settle into her new role as Lieutenant while also making amends with Andy Allo's Wendy Seager after the latter expressed feelings for Stella's fiance Kelly Severide, played by Taylor Kinney.
