When does Chicago Fire return in 2023?

When does Chicago Fire return in 2023? The next new episode of Chicago Fire Season 11 will be on May 3, 2023, which is when One Chicago's other shows, Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med, will also return to NBC. A title name or summary for the Season 11, Episode 18 of Chicago Fire hasn't been announced yet. According to Parade, NBC's shows, including the One Chicago franchise, often take a break in April.

Where is Chicago Fire filmed?

Where is Chicago Fire filmed? Chicago Fire and the other One Chicago shows are all filmed in Chicago, Illinois. The building used for the firehouse exterior shots is a working Chicago Fire Department firehouse, Engine 18, located at 1360 South Blue Island Avenue. Meanwhile, the interiors are filmed at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, the largest independent movie studio outside of Los Angeles. "We thought Chicago would be a great city to set it in, since Rescue Me had been done in New York, and Chicago was born out of this great fire," Haas also told Collider.

"So, we said, "Put us on a plane to Chicago and let us research. We spent three weeks in firehouses in Chicago, and then wrote the show."

The show films all over Chicago, and residents might recognize shots from the Magnificent Mile in the city's downtown or aerial views of the Chicago River. NBC revealed that the producers of Chicago Fire wanted Firehouse 51 to have a sliding poll (which was even included in the pilot episode). But, because most of the new Chicago firehouses are one-story buildings, Chicago Fire decided to get rid of the pole to stay authentic to Engine 18. Other fan-favorite locations include Molly's bar, which is actually Lottie's Pub, a bar located in the Bucktown neighborhood of Chicago. However, to prevent disruptions to Lottie's business, later seasons of the show recreated the interior of the bar at Cinespace for Molly's scenes. When Chicago Fire actors have to interact with the law enforcement officers of Chicago P.D., some scenes are filmed at the police station located just around the corner from Engine 18.
