With plenty of exciting plot points - such as the answer to a marriage proposal and a series veteran's return to Firehouse 51 - Chicago Fire looks set to bring plenty of drama as it returns for its 12th season.

Featuring a massive cast of returning regulars and newcomers, the Chicago Fire Department returned to the small screen on January 17 following an unfortunate delay due to 2023's writers' and actors' strikes.
