There isn’t any reason to wait any further for the Chicago Fire season 6 episode 7 return date: NBC has went ahead and confirmed it!
Today, the network made it clear that the Jesse Spencer – Taylor Kinney series will be back on the air come Thursday, January 4, where it will air the first of five episodes weekly until the Winter Olympics come around. This is something that showrunner Derek Haas confirmed to CarterMatt while at One Chicago Day (read more on that over here). When the series returns, it will also have its work cut out for it trying to resolve its biggest cliffhanger when it comes to Dawson’s father Ramon: He found himself at the end of the last episode in grave danger. From here, the big test for his daughter is figuring out a way to save him while also figuring out the right way to separate some of her feelings for him as a daughter with what is actually happening to him within the moment. That is not the easiest thing in the world to do.
The good news for Chicago Fire fans is that while this current hiatus is a long one, there are going to be many episodes coming on the air from March onward. The structure of the season enables them to have straight runs of many episodes without having to do a whole lot of starts and stops with one-week hiatuses or the like. Think of this as a little bit of a silver lining in the midst of what is otherwise a long break.

For the record, one of the reasons for these earlier return dates is simply the fact that there are Winter Olympics coming. While other networks may not shy away from airing programming opposite it NBC doesn’t have much of a choice. They’re not going to be able to air their regular programming for a few weeks in the midst of their coverage.
This schedule could actually end up being for the best for them — one of the good things is that January is a time of the year in which most viewers tend to be home; therefore, there could be a pretty golden opportunity for the network to grab a hold of some of these viewers.
