How to Stream ‘Chicago Fire’ for Free

Chicago Fire, which debuted in October 2012, is currently in its eighth season. The series depicts the lives of firefighters, paramedics, and other first responders who work in Chicago’s Firehouse 51. Though the show portrays real issues, it is a fictional show with a cast of actors. The actors did undergo some formal firefighting training before beginning to film the first episodes. Though some scenes are filmed at the real-life Engine 18 in Chicago, much of the show is filmed in a studio.

Dick Wolf is the producer of Chicago Fire. Wolf is also the producer of the successful crime show Law and Order. The Chicago Trilogy includes Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, and Chicago Med. Unlike Law and Order, The Chicago Trilogy contains many crossover references to the other shows.

The season eight cast includes Jesse Spencer as Matthew Casey, Taylor Kinney as Kelly Severide, Eamonn Walker as Chief Wallace Boden, David Eigenberg as Christopher Herrmann, Joe Minoso as Joe Cruz, Yuri Sardarov as Brian “Otis” Zvonecek, Christian Stolte as Randy “Mouch” McHolland, Kara Killmer as Sylvie Brett, Miranda Rae Mayo as Stella Kidd, and Annie Ilonzeh as Emily Foster.
