Now, the show must go on and at some point, of course it will! It’s just going to take a little bit of time in order to get new episodes ready to go. The production of season 13 should kick off at some point in July, and the plan is to bring it back either in September or October. This is, at the very least, what we have seen in the past for normal seasons. We’re sure that one priority pretty early on here is going to be naming a new Chief, whether it be an established face or someone who is totally new to the series.

In some ways, it does feel like it’s a little bit easy to forget about what we saw with the character at the end of last season, but it is worth noting that this is Kelly Severide’s half-brother. Why didn’t Benny ever say anything about that? For the time being, that’s one of those questions we’re going to need answers to, and soon — especially since he also is a part of the Chicago Fire Department. Out of all the various jobs that he could have had…
