Let’s jump right into it. Yes, Gabby is coming back on Chicago Fire. Actress Monica Raymund is returning to her character of Gabby Dawson, which has long been requested by fans of the show.
While it’s great news that Gabby is returning to the show, there is a lack of details for how long she will be back on Chicago Fire. What we do know for sure is that she will appear in the next episode of the show.
The expressions of the Chicago Fire cast members in the image above will be shared by viewers of the show who have not yet seen a preview for the brand new episode. The writers are bringing back Gabby for the fall finale, and it will be an episode that everyone will want to tune in for.

Monica Raymund as Gabby on Chicago Fire
Gabriela Dawson was a paramedic on Ambulance 61 and the former second officer of Truck 81 at Firehouse 51. She was an essential part of the team and had quite a few exciting storylines over the years.
For a long time, Gabby and Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) were in a relationship, and they ended up getting married on the show.
When Raymund decided that she wanted to stop playing Gabby for a bit, the writers sent the character to work on relief efforts in Puerto Rico. It was a sad ending for the relationship that fans had cheered on.
The character left the show at the end of Season 6 but reappeared for a quick episode in Season 7 to say her real goodbyes to Casey. A video of that last goodbye is shared below.
Gabby also has a brother named Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda), who was a primary member of the Chicago P.D. cast for several years. He also appeared in many Chicago Fire episodes early on.
Seeing Gabby back at Firehouse 51 will be a nice treat for fans of Chicago Fire, but it is unclear how long we will get to enjoy her presence. Make sure to tune in next week in case this is just a single episode guest-starring appearance for actress Monica Raymund.
Chicago Fire airs Wednesday nights at 9/8c on NBC.
