Update 9/14: Bad news, Chicago Fire fans! A rep for the drama confirms that Brittany Curan’s Katie Severide is not who Otis is speaking to in the photo. Guess it’s back to guessing!
We’re just a few weeks away from Chicago Fire’s return, and the anticipation of what’s to come is really building. As the premiere inches closer, there are still a lot of unanswered questions and speculation around Chicago Fire season 6, and it’s all thanks to the show’s creator.
Week after week, Chicago Fire creator Derek Haas has been giving fans a small taste of what is coming up this season. On Thursday (Sept. 14), Haas once again took to Twitter to tease a season 6 surprise, and this time it’s all about a certain fan-favorite character, and her possible return.
“Two weeks away. My view right now,” Haas tweeted alongside a photo of numerous actors standing around on set. “And who is Otis talking to?” he asked.
The “who” that Haas is referring to has a lot of fans buzzing with excitement. Although we can’t see her face, we do know that Brian “Otis” Zvonecek (played by Yuri Sardarov) is talking to a female, and all signs are pointing to it being the one and only Katie Nolan (played by Brittany Curran)!
While the identity of the mystery woman is still being kept under wraps, we can see why fans are thinking it’s Katie, aka Kelly Severide’s (Taylor Kinney) half sister. Between the actress’ look and Otis’ happy expression, it really does appear to be her. Take a look at the photo Haas tweeted below:
If it is, it would certainly be a treat for fans — especially since it’s been awhile since her character has been on the drama. The last time we saw Katie was back in 2014 when she was a recurring character on season 2. In case you need a refresher, Katie was in culinary school and practiced her cooking skills on the firefighters, thanks to her brother’s insistence, which is how she met “Otis.”
Sadly, after being kidnapped (she was ultimately saved by Severide), Katie decided she needed a change and left both Kelly and Otis behind. Now, however, that could all be changing.
What do you think? Could this mystery woman be Katie?
Chicago Fire returns for season 6 on September 28, 2017 on NBC.
