With Chicago Fire season 6 almost over, we’re making our case to get Chicago Fire renewed. Here are 5 reasons NBC needs to order Chicago Fire season 7.
It’s May, which means two things: season finales, and TV show renewals or cancellations. The Chicago Fire season finale is this Thursday on May 10, and just a few days after that is when NBC makes its upfront presentation to advertisers—and unveils its slate for the 2018-2019 fall TV season.
With that in mind, we’re getting up on our soapbox to campaign for Chicago Fire season 7. This current season has been a period of transition for Firehouse 51, with characters both coming and going (and some who may still be going), plus Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) getting a bump up to Captain that he should’ve had years ago.
Meanwhile, this was also the first season without co-creator Michael Brandt, who left the show to pursue other opportunities. While his fellow co-creator Derek Haas successfully ran the ship solo, Fire also found itself bounced to Thursday nights and running into not one but two major schedule preemptions. Whether it was in front of or behind the camera, there were a lot of big things happening and we’d like to see a few more.
Click through the below slideshow for the 5 reasons we think NBC should have Chicago Fire renewed, and we encourage you to add your own thoughts in the comments at the end of this article. We’ll keep you updated when we know whether or not Firehouse 51 will be open next season.
