It’s great news for the actress who plays the new paramedic on Chicago Fire.

When actress Kara Killmer left the show, the producers had to find a replacement for Paramedic In Charge Sylvie Brett.

Violet Mikami (played by Hanako Greensmith) became the PIC after Brett left. But she needed a new partner.

The first new partner for Violet was Jared Lennox (played by Wesam Keesh). Lennox clashed with the people of Firehouse 51.

After Chief Boden sent Lennox packing, a floater named Lizzy Novak was paired with Violet.

Initially hesitant about Lizzy, Violet felt she was a bad fit, but the PIC changed her mind after several important calls.

Jocelyn Hudon becomes a series regular on Chicago Fire

We will see much more of Lizzy Novak during Chicago Fire Season 13. Jocelyn Hudon, who plays the new paramedic, has been promoted to a series regular.

This means she will be featured in nearly every episode as Violet’s partner, giving Ambulance 61 a static duo of strong women.

Jocelyn shared the news on her Instagram page, along with many fire emojis.

The announcement gives the firehouse some stability. This is despite some major changes coming next season.

Eamonn Walker (he plays Chief Boden) is done as a series regular, forcing the firehouse to turn to new leadership. Boden told Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) that he was the man for the job. But will Herrmann get all the necessary qualifications to make the transition seamless?

Regarding the calls that helped win over Violet, below is an important one that Lizzy helped with during Season 12.
