When Does ‘Chicago Fire’ Come Back to TV? NBC Announces Fall 2019 Premiere Dates for Your Favorite Shows
The season-ending episodes of Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., and Chicago Med aired less than four weeks ago. While it will be several months until they return to TV, fans who are suffering from One Chicago withdrawal can at least mark their calendars with a premiere date for their favorite shows, since NBC has unveiled its complete schedule for fall 2019.
Chicago Fire premieres September 25
Season 8 of Chicago Fire will premiere September 25 at 9/8c on NBC. Its sister shows, Chicago Med and Chicago P.D., will also premiere on that date, airing new episodes at 8/7c and 10/9c, respectively.
The three hit shows are keeping their Wednesday night timeslot, which they’ve held since the network decided to start airing the Windy City-set dramas as a block in 2018.
