The available roles haven't been stated explicitly, for now, that's why it would be risky for fans of the firefighting drama who might also like to be a part of the action and join the full squad of the Firehouse 51 crew. Interested applicants should apply now

Those who'll make it to the finals of the auditions will feature alongside old characters in Chicago, Illinois, this February. 


Currently, in its eighth season, the series has its calendars lined up for the next episodes premiering.

Season 8's thirteenth episode will premiere on February 5, 2020. Entitled "A Chicago Welcome," the episode would be the first from the series to air on-screen in 2020. 

Subsequent episodes include Season eight, chapter 14, subtitled "Shut it Down" is going to be televised on February 12, 2020.


Chapter 15, which the title isn't known at the moment, would be on NBC's showtime on Wednesday, February 19, 2020. For people unfamiliar with the action-drama, here are some interesting facts to know.

Chicago Fire made its maiden premiere on October 10, 2012. The show reflects the risks taken and sacrifices made by firefighters and paramedics in their daily life struggles and career. 


Created by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas, the series has completed seven seasons. And with the eighth season still running, the show has televised a hundred and seventy-one episodes in less than eight years. 

According to Country Living, the entire cast of the T.V. program has undergone thorough firefighter training to ensure everyone was adequately planned for as the show involved real fires in the scenes. 


The primetime series had recorded rapid success that, in five years of its existence, it had indirectly birthed two spin-off series, "Chicago Med" and Chicago Ph.D., which became instant successes from the start.  

From inception, "Chicago Fire's" creators have always added a bit of realism to the series. From using real firehouses and convincing the Mayor of Chicago to guest-star and creating set pieces that had the media thinking a plane crashed on the scene, Chicago Fire is a stand-out show.
