Just in case you want something more to be excited about when it comes to Chicago Fire season 7, here it is: Something awesome could be within the first two episodes!
In a new post on Twitter, show executive producer Derek Haas noted that the first two episodes of the season are being filmed out of order; while this is a reasonably-common occurrence for many network shows (we know that Hawaii Five-0 is doing something similar right now), there tend to be very specific reasons for it. Sometimes, it’s because of a location or an actor who can only be available at a certain time. At other points, it’s because an actor is directing and having them direct the first episode in production is easier on their schedule so they can prep better.
Alas, Haas isn’t offering too many updates right now about the switch, other than saying it’s a “secret” — so yea, there is a pretty important reason for it. Consider this something to keep it mind, but also something that we’ll have to wait for more information on.
The lucky (and awesome) news is that with Chicago Fire back in production again, that means that there’s likely going to be a ton of news coming up over the weeks ahead! We’re hoping for some opportunities to hear a little bit more about everything from casting to storylines to crossovers and the like. We know that this is a season of change in a lot of ways, which Monica Raymund now gone, but we’ve seen in the past that the One Chicago series can figure out a way to handle some of this change. Here’s to hoping that they do the same thing now.
Chicago Fire season 7 will premiere on Wednesday, September 26 as a part of the three-hour One Chicago programming block the network has set up — that’s an exciting scheduling move, but we’ll have to wait and see whether or not it leads to better ratings for any or all of the shows.
