From the moment the Chicago Fire season 9 finale faded to black, fans have been impatiently counting down the days until the arrival of Chicago Fire season 10 largely due to the shocking cliffhanger the season ended on.

As season 9 came to a close, Squad was called to respond to a boat accident on Lake Michigan which required them to slip into their scuba gear and take to the waters to perform an underwater rescue.

While all seemed to be going well at first, things quickly took a turn for the worst when the boat began collapsing on top of them blocking their exit. On top of having their escape route blocked, Severide (Taylor Kinney), Cruz (Joe Minoso), Capp (Randy Flagler) and Tony’s (Anthony Ferraris) air tanks had run out of air.

Just before the episode faded to black and the credits began rolling, the water rose above Squad’s heads leaving their lives hanging in the balance. Given the way in which season 9 ended, it’s understandable that the biggest question on the mind of fans is whether anyone on Squad won’t survive the ordeal.

The One Chicago franchise is no stranger to heartbreaking and shocking character deaths, but what exactly are the odds that the Chicago Fire season 10 premiere will feature the death of a beloved member of 51?

Will anyone die in the Chicago Fire season 10 premiere?

As the Chicago Fire writers have proven, they’re not opposed to killing off a character as a means of reminding viewers of the real dangers that come with the job. That said, our gut is telling us that season 10 won’t be kicking off with a funeral.

While NBC has not yet revealed any spoilers directly, there have been some interesting leaks from the set which seem to confirm that both Severide and Cruz survive their brush with death.

Taylor Kinney has been spotted on set a number of times since filming has begun seeming to confirm Severide will survive. Meanwhile, Joe Minoso recently filmed a promotional video for Wolf Entertainment in which he was in full costume on set suggesting he’ll be back in action again this season.

As for Capp and Tony? While there have not been any leaks confirming whether Randy Flagler or Anthony Ferraris are back on set filming the new season, a recent casting call seems to suggest they’ll both make it out of the ordeal as well.

Shortly after production began on season 10, a casting call reported NBC was looking for extras to appear in a baby shower scene. While details were limited, the casting call seems to have been for Cruz and Chloe’s baby shower and seemed to be planned for early on in the season. If 51 has just lost a member of its family, one has to believe the baby shower would be delayed which seems to suggest all of Squad will survive.

Of course, we’ll have to wait until season 10 premieres on Sept. 22 to know for certain what the writers have planned but we’re optimistic that no one will die in the Chicago Fire season 10 premiere!
