Brett and Antonio proved to be fan favorites together on Chicago Fire and Chicago PD, so you can’t be surprised that the producers want to embrace this again! As a matter of fact, we figure that there are many out there celebrating the opportunity to see the two parties together.
Luckily, the good news is that they didn’t necessarily end things on terrible terms where there wasn’t a chance to see the two parties back in each others’ orbit. As a result of that, there are going to be opportunities to get the two back together in a way that sounds like it will stem from a crisis. In speaking on the subject to TVLine, Chicago Fire showrunner Derek Haas had the following to say about the two parties joining forces and getting back with each other once more:
“We are going to reignite the flames that had died unexpectedly last season, because we really like Jon Seda and Kara Killmer’s chemistry … They will be seeing each other again under trying circumstances and deciding, ‘Maybe we were too quick to walk away from each other. We’re at different times in our lives now.’ They’re going into this second time with eyes wide open.”
This in turn should help each other, and maybe make the two of them stronger together. From a creative perspective, having one of these characters be Antonio Dawson makes the pairing even stronger. You already had a good reason to bring him over to Chicago Fire here and there thanks to his sister, so adding in there Brett ups the ante and allows for even more crossover potential. We’re sure that this is a delicate balancing act since you’re speaking about two different shows and trying to balance complicated schedules, but we know that the NBC series has pulled this off before. Therefore, we feel pretty darn confident that they are capable of pulling this off again. (Just remember — at one point last year Seda was basically working on three different shows with Chicago Justice starting up. Somehow, this may feel like a breather compared to some of that.)
New episodes of Chicago Fire will kick off this fall, but unfortunately, they’re not going to be starting with anything as joyous as true love. After all, you have to remember that there was a pretty gut-wrenching cliffhanger at the end of season 5 and we’re still waiting to learn one way or another if Casey, Mouch, Kannell, and Severide are still alive on the other side of the fire. Once we learn who survived, we may get a chance to move on to lighter topics.
