With Chicago Fire nearly halfway through its 10th season, the hit series’ showrunner, Derek Haas, is offering details about what fans can expect in the season’s upcoming episodes.

During a recent chat with TVLine, the Chicago Fire showrunner declared that Kara Killmer’s Sylvie Brett will be reunited with some loved ones during the 10th season. “The question becomes, how young we can have people on set?” Haas explained. “So we’re working through that because we do want to see her this year.” 

Haas then stated to the media outlet that the Chicago Fire character will reunite with her two-year-old sister, Amelia, and her father this season. “And very soon,” Haas revealed. 

During a recent interview with Fort Worth Magazine, Kara Killmer spoke about her Chicago Fire persona.” I feel fortunate that I get to play a very versatile character. That I can kind of mingle with any of the groups and any of the other characters in the story. That keeps it interesting after almost a decade. To be able to play the fun stuff and also the really dramatic stuff.”

‘Chicago Fire’ Star Kara Killmer Spoke About What Fans Can Expect From Season 10

While chatting with Fort Worth Magazine, Kara Killmer opened up about what Chicago Fire fans can expect from the show’s tenth season. “We really have a lot of interesting changes coming to the house,” she explained. The actress noted that Firehouse 51 is a tight-knit group and fans will see Stella Kidd coming into her own as a lieutenant and trying to find a place. 

“A the end of season nine, we see that [Wallace] Boden is possibly looking at getting a promotion as well,” the Chicago Fire actress continued. “So it kind of leaves everyone figuring out, ‘Okay, how are we going to reconfigure?’ It’ll be interesting.”

Killmer then stated that she is fortunate to work on Chicago Fire and it really is the “best jumping-off point” due to the crew being so dedicated. “We’re a really tight-knit cast. I don’t think that what we have is very common on other shows in terms of just being so close.”

She also declared that the Chicago Fire cast has a little Midwestern charm and Midwestern grit in the cast and crew. “I think that really comes across on the screen. I definitely think there’s a comfortability that I’ve found being on their show for eight years going.”

In regards to any projects she’s working on outside of Chicago Fire, Killmer noted that she only has a very small window for any projects besides the show. “We usually try and pull off between 22 and 24 episodes, which takes up most of the year.”
