It’s been several seasons since we’ve seen “Chicago Fire” fan-favorite character Brian “Otis” Zvonecek, played by actor Yuriy Sardarov. Outsiders may recall the actor‘s departure following his character’s death in season eight. However, now, alongside “Chicago Fire’s” Miranda Rae Mayo, who plays Stella Kidd, Saradarov will make a new appearance. Together, he and Mayo star in the cast of a brand new show.

According to Deadline, Mayo and Saradarov star in a new dark comedy called “Daddy.” The new film, written and directed by Neal Kelley and Jono Sherman, takes place in a dystopian society. The film takes an interesting perspective regarding parenthood and government.

The outlet states the stars’ new film features a government with power to determine which members of society may father children. It follows a government-sanctioned retreat in the mountains of California, where four men have been permitted to go.

“Daddy’s” overall storyline seems to surround the four men’s ordeal. Together, they stay within the mountains without further instructions and no guide. Deadline states each of the four individuals remain “left to their own devices.”

From here, they’re responsible for proving both to themselves and each other that they would make suitable fathers.

In our society, so much of the stress of parenthood is placed on mothers. Now, it will definitely be interesting to follow the “Chicago Fire” stars as they navigate topics regarding fatherhood.

‘Chicago Fire’ Showrunner Started in Film

Back on the set of “Chicago Fire,” fans are dependent on showrunner Derek Haas for all pertinent insight.

However, while we’ve learned a lot about “Chicago Fire” through the ever-dependable showrunner. Now, we’re excited to share with you a little about the showrunner himself.

Maintaining his position on NBC for 10 impressive seasons, it might be hard to imagine Haas dropping hints and insight for any other films or series. However, prior to his role on “Chicago Fire,” Haas worked as a writer for the hit film “2 Fast 2 Furious,” as well as “Wanted.”

Regardless, we’re glad to have his insight here in “One Chicago.”

Further, Haas revealed he’d never had a role in television until “Chicago Fire.” And despite his history in film, his work on “Chicago Fire” is essential, for both fans and cast members alike.

After all, Haas is frequently the reason “Chicago Fire” fans flock together to decipher the show’s next steps. It’s led to theories regarding character pairings, subplots, and so on. He shared with Entertainment Weekly, “I try to be honest on the feed, but my honesty is always going to mislead you…If I can add any piece of doubt into whatever is the pervading theory, that’s a victory.”
