The Chicago Fire season 8 premiere is titled “Sacred Ground,” and suffice it to say, we’re worried about what’s coming up. Just remember the way that the seventh season ended, and then also this show’s history of losing important characters.
Also, just remember the nature of the firefighter gig! People die, people get hurt, and people are forced to leave early. There’s no guarantee that any of this is going to happen within this particular premiere, but the synopsis below has us more than just a little bit nervous:
09/25/2019 (09:00PM – 10:00PM) (Wednesday) : In the season 8 premiere, the mattress factory fire spirals out of control. Truck and squad lay it on the line in hopes of getting the trapped victims out alive.

One of the things that we learned is that the mattress factory fire is one of the worst kinds of fires out there, mostly because the nature of the structure and then also the flammable product within. We’re in a situation here where just one wrong turn can lead to things spiraling out of control. These characters need to be very aware of their surroundings; otherwise, they could find themselves never walking out of the building alive.
There’s a chance that the premiere could leave you devastated, but there is a reason why NBC isn’t sharing a whole lot of details within. There will be a chance to address the state of things for Severide, Stella, Casey, Brett, and other characters … eventually. The first order of business for all of them is surviving what they are going through here. The next order of business is then figuring out more of what they want out of their lives. We don’t want Chicago Fire to stay sad for too long, provided of course that something sad happens in the premiere. This is routinely one of the more lighthearted shows within the One Chicago world — the humor and the firehouse antics make it a great way to divide up the darker drama that you see in Chicago Med and Chicago PD.
