Chicago Fire spoilers reveal some big news from the set. Actor Taylor Kinney is back after taking some time away from the show.
Taylor plays firefighter Kelly Severide on the Chicago Fire cast. He took a leave of absence from the show during Season 11 but has returned for Season 12 episodes.
Several cliffhangers happened in the previous season finale, including Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) leaving Firehouse 51 to find her husband. Severide joined a task force after he left arson training, but Kidd sought to return him to Chicago.
Rumors about whether Taylor would return to the Chicago Fire cast popped up in many places. He hasn’t publicly addressed his leave of absence, but Taylor has returned to work.
Chicago Fire fans get to welcome back Severide, but it is almost time to say goodbye to several main characters. Season 12 is going to start with some episodes that are difficult for the fans.
Kara Killmer is leaving Chicago Fire. She will finish playing paramedic Sylvie Brett during the new season. Expect a countdown until her final episodes air on NBC.
