Chicago Fire has been in our lives for a decade. The firefighting drama has given us countless scares, romances, and shocking cases during its run, and season 11 is poised to deliver some of the most exciting storylines yet.

As production on season 11 continues, however, the question inevitably falls to the future of the show. Chicago Fire has yet to be renewed for additional seasons, so is there a possibility that it will end after this upcoming season?

Let’s take a look at what we know about the future of Fire.

Is Chicago Fire getting renewed?

For starters, season 11 is the last of a multi-year extension that NBC announced in 2020. At the time, the show was in its ninth season, and the extension felt like a huge vote of confidence from the network.

Paul Telegdy, the Chairman of NBC Entertainment, told Deadline that:

"“Dick Wolf has proven time and time again that he makes shows audiences love, [and] we are delighted, excited and proud that as part of this epic deal with Wolf Entertainment, NBC’s loyal audience will know that their favorite shows have a certain future for the next three years.”"

This multi-year extension is pretty standard for NBC and Wolf Entertainment, as both Chicago PD and Med were given similar deals. The biggest indicator of success, of course, is ratings, and stats for Chicago Fire have continued to be strong throughout the back end of season 10.

In fact, the season 10 finale was the highest-rated and most-watched title of all the Wednesday programming across the networks, with some of its competitors including Survivor and The Flash. It’s clear that Chicago Fire is still a ratings juggernaut for NBC, and given how much has been put into keeping all three One Chicago shows in the spotlight, the future looks bright.

There’s also the impressive history of other Wolf Productions shows. Law and Order ran for two decades and was recently revived, while Law and Order: SVU broke the record for longest-running live action series of all time. If these metrics are anything to go by (and they are), then Chicago Fire is going to be around for a long, long time. Season 11 is just going to be part of the adventure.
