Chicago Fire is starting Season 4 with big drama and new faces. Season 3 ended with Casey disappearing, and the action will pick up right where it left off. The cops of Chicago PD will do their best to find Casey before his time is up.
Should fans really worry about Casey’s fate? Not at all. He is mentioned in future spoilers for the upcoming season, so he is not likely to die. He is also featured in goofy cast photos from the set. The drama factor will be huge, though.
The Chicago Fire YouTube page released two different previews for the upcoming Chicago Fire Season 4.
The first is a trailer with the focus on Casey’s rescue. He will face down a gun during the Season 4 premiere.
The second preview is an extended behind-the-scenes look with new footage of Season 4 throughout. The cast talks about the upcoming season with a voice over.
As for the new faces, Steven R. McQueen has joined the cast as the new candidate for Firehouse 51. He will not have a good start, though.
TV Insider shared the first photo for Chicago Fire Season 4 earlier this week, and McQueen is featured in the sneak peek photo. He is facing down Chief Boden, and no one looks happy.

Entertainment Weekly shared more spoilers for McQueen’s character just last week, and it looks like someone else in the house will help him win Boden over in the end. That someone is Casey. That is why fans should not worry about the premiere.
“His character Jimmy Borelli doesn’t make a great first impression. Late for his very first shift, a duct-taped and toilet paper-wrapped Jimmy is dumped at 51 by his older brother, a fellow firefighter from a different house. ‘He’s summarily told to hit [the road] by Boden,’ EP Matt Olmstead teases. ‘He has to work his way back to the good graces of Boden to try and get back in 51.’ But Casey sees more to this candidate with a complicated history and ‘realizes this guy could be a really great firefighter.’ “
Some have wondered about McQueen’s casting for Chicago Fire. He had been dropping hints about wanting a superhero role on social media for months, but this role is far from that.
Olmstead had good things to say about McQueen, though. According to TV Insider, he said that, “We wanted a very different take on a candidate. Across the board [during casting], everyone said about McQueen, ‘That’s the guy!’ ”
McQueen is not the only male joining the Chicago Fire cast. A previous Inquisitr report revealed that Brian White was joining the series, as well. The cast from the end of last season is remaining intact, and there is more drama and romance coming to Firehouse 51 during the season ahead.
Chicago Fire will return to NBC on October 13.
