Chicago Fire rumors present an interesting wrinkle to a future storyline if actress Serinda Swan gets her way. She hopes to find a way to return to the Chicago Fire and present a bit of drama through a story arc involving Kelly Severide and Stella Kidd.

Swan played Brittany Baker, who die-hard fans of the show should recognize as the wife Severide acquired in Vegas during Season 3 of the show. Severide spoke about her briefly after meeting Kidd, revealing that the short marriage had been annulled.

“[I]would be down for [Brittany] to just randomly show up one season and mess things up a bit for him again,” Swan said during a new interview that she did with TV Line.

But first, Chicago Fire fans need to find out if Severide even survived that boat rescue that left him and the rest of his team trapped underwater during the Season 9 finale. If he does survive, then the Severide-Kidd wedding could come up at some point during Season 10.

Why did Serinda Swan leave the Chicago Fire cast?

“[I] had to exit so fast because I had to go off to the next season of Graceland, that not everything was tied up properly,” Swan elaborated when she addressed questions about why she only appeared in four episodes as a member of the Chicago Fire cast.

She also says that people still ask her about the turn she made during Season 3 of the hit One Chicago show and that she would definitely be down for returning and causing some drama between the two firefighters.

It doesn’t appear that there are any plans for the Chicago Fire writers to include Brittany in a Season 10 episode, but things could change, especially with Swan stating that she is up to the task.
