“Purgatory” (02/21/17) – After exercising his disdain and authority over Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker), Chief Anderson (guest star Michael Hanrahan) reassigns members of 51 to various houses around town, citing the need for improvement.
The ramifications are felt by the crew, who are left to make the best of their respective situations in their new surroundings. Boden fights to repair the situation, but it just might be out of his control. Elsewhere, Severide (Taylor Kinney) toils over an important decision.
From renown Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf (“Law & Order” brand) and creators Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, the writing team behind “3:10 to Yuma,” comes season five of the high-octane drama “Chicago Fire,” — an edge-of-your- seat view into the lives of everyday heroes committed to one of America’s noblest professions. The firefighters, rescue squad, and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51 risk their lives week in and week out to save and protect the citizens of their incredible city.
This is an extended family and everyone inside Firehouse 51 knows no other way than to lay it all on the line for each other. Lt. Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) leads the Truck Company and brash Lt. Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) runs the Rescue Squad.
The firehouse also includes Battalion Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker), a fireman’s fireman. As chief of 51, Boden keeps his house running smoothly and his firefighters prepared to overcome all adversity. Paramedic turned tough as nails firefighter Gabriela Dawson (Monica Raymund) returns alongside Paramedic Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer), seasoned veteran Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) and resourceful firefighter Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo).
Also returning for the fifth season are Randy “Mouch” McHolland (Christian Stolte), Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso) and Brian “Otis” Zvonecek (Yuri Sardarov).
In addition to Wolf, Haas and Brandt, executive producers include Matt Olmstead, Joe Chappelle, Arthur Forney and Peter Jankowski.
