Chicago Fire Alum Monica Raymund looks absolutely stunning in new photos from a photoshoot. The actress played Gabriela Dawson on the hit series until 2019, when she left to pursue other projects. The show has continued on and is now in its tenth season, with a Mid-season finale airing soon.

The photos from her recent shoot with The Bare Magazine are truly breathtaking.

“Thank you @tina_turnbow for this dope photoshoot and to @the.baremag for the spread! Autumn in New York,” Raymund shared to Instagram.

The photos of Raymund are both gorgeous and authentic, really giving off those “Autumn in New York” vibes she mentioned.

Raymund has since gone on to have roles in High Town and Bros. Meanwhile Chicago Fire continues on without Raymund.

‘Chicago Fire’ Will Feature an Iconic Location in Upcoming Episode

While Raymund’s photoshoots take place in an iconic city, a new episode of Chicago Fire will feature an iconic location of its own. The cast of the show recently took a trip to the Shedd Aquarium in what many are guessing will be a setting for an upcoming episode.

And what an interesting setting that would be for a fire-related incident. The Chicago mainstay averages on 2 million visitors each year and is one of the biggest aquariums in the world. Who knows what upcoming episode will feature the aquarium or whether or not it’ll be involved in a fire-related incident or just be a setting for a personal outing.

Here’s How the Showrunner Keeps Fans Guessing

An Aquarium fire sounds pretty wild, but it’s far from the craziest thing that would ever happen on the show. Seriously, Chicago Fire has been full of its twists and turns over the years. Fans frequently love to take to social media to theorize, and it’s something that production is taking to its advantage.

Showrunner Derek Haas once discussed how he keeps fans guessing through a powerful weapon: social media. With social media, Haas is able not only to drop clues, but keep fans guessing if he thinks they’re getting too close.

“To me, the only defense is to go on the offense,” he told Entertainment Weekly about how he teases the show. “I try to be honest on the feed, but my honesty is also going to mislead you… If I can add any piece of doubt into whatever is the pervading theory, that’s a victory.”

So, if you’re one of those fans whose been kept on their toes about what’s going to happen next, you can tune in for the holiday episode of Chicago Fire when it returns from break on December 8th at 9/8 central following a brand new episode of Chicago Med.
