You know what day it is, it’s Hump Day, and the cast of Chicago Fire had fun with it on social media Wednesday afternoon.
The cast showed off their dance moves that you can watch below:
In the video, some members of the cast shout out #OneChicago. If you are not already familiar, this shoutout was for the a popular podcast that covers Chicago Fire. The fans for the NBC phenom are passionate, and this video is a fun way to show them that they, too, can have fun while working on the set. You can see from the video that everyone is jovial and happy and that even without Spencer in the fold anymore, the show is going to be just fine moving forward with such a fun cast.
It is also Wednesday, which means a new episode premiers on NBC tonight.
First episode without Jesse Spencer
The longtime fan favorite will not be on tonight’s episode. The show moves on without Jesse Spencer, who stayed on until the show’s 200th episode. Why did he leave? The actor has worked in television for over 18 years now and needed a break and time to focus on his family. Spencer first earned the spotlight on Fox’s House years ago starring Hugh Laurie.
Again, Spencer finished up his role last episode. Now, rumors are swirling as a new character returns. Andy returns after appearing in eight episodes before being written off the show. The opportunity is there to get fans excited about a new era on the show. Will the new cast member stick around? Will we see a variety of returning faces?
This is what makes the future of Chicago Fire so interesting and why cast members are having fun today. You can dance and celebrate because the vibes are good for the program. Remember, on tonight’s episode the storyline revolving around the serial arsonist and the church picks up steam. Things are going to look a lot different without Spencer leading the way. This is a good opportunity to freshen things up as the show heads towards 200 more episodes.
From the synopsis:
“A major security breach in the city’s computer networks forces Firehouse 51’s senior leaders to take matters into their own hands. Severide gears up for an arson investigation.”
You can watch Chicago Fire on NBC at 9 PM EST on Wednesdays. You can also stream it on Peacock along with any of the other previous seasons. Tonight’s episode will be the first without Jesse Spencer who left the show for personal reasons.
