Is there a chance that more news on Chicago Fire season 13 is going to surface over the course of the summer? It feels like a given, but is it wrong for us to think so?

Well, let’s not beat around the bush here too much — after all, it is a given in some ways that a date will be announced soon. After all, the Taylor Kinney series is going to be premiering on NBC in the fall, and they will want to get a date out there long before that. This indicates summer — heck, it actually indicates the relatively near future!

If there was a specific period we would watch out for when it comes to a date announcement, it is actually the next couple of weeks. That would allow NBC to promote Chicago Fire with a specific date attached to it throughout the July 4 holiday and beyond that, also during the Olympics. This is something that they are always keen to do with a lot of their shows.

So, provided a premiere is coming in late September or early October, what could you expect to see in terms of the story? Well, the big cliffhanger about Jack Damon being Severide’s half-brother has to be explored further, and that will be a huge component to whatever story gets explored … though it is also far from the only one. Remember that there is also going to be a new Chief coming to Firehouse 51, meaning that Herrmann is not going to be able to step in as Boden’s replacement. That is a bummer, but hardly a surprise given that a show like this wants drama. Isn’t it easier to create that with someone new, and someone who probably has a different leadership style?
