Netflix, the popular streaming platform known for its wide array of TV shows and movies, has added yet another fan favorite to its collection. And this time, it’s a fiery one. That’s right, we’re talking about the Chicago Fire. The American action-drama series that follows the lives of our brave firefighters and paramedics in the city of Chicago has been a hit among viewers since its premiere in 2012.
With multiple seasons under its belt, it’s natural for fans to wonder how many seasons are available on Netflix. Well, your search ends here as we dive into all the details about how many seasons of Chicago Fire you can stream on Netflix.
If you’re new to the world of Chicago Fire or have been meaning to re-watch some of your favorite episodes from earlier seasons, then you’re in luck. On September 1st, 2021, Netflix announced that they have licensed not just one but two popular spin-off shows – Chicago Med and Chicago Fire – for streaming in select regions.
According to reports, the streaming giant managed to secure licenses for seasons 1-4 of both shows in a total of fourteen regions including Australia and Canada. This means that subscribers in these regions will be able to binge-watch all four exciting seasons without any interruptions.
As much as we’d like all good things to last forever on Netflix, unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. As per their licensing agreement with producers Universal Television and Wolf Entertainment Inc., both shows were only licensed on a single-year basis. What does this mean? It means that after being available for a year on Netflix (from September 2021 – August 2022), both Chicago Med and Chicago Fire will depart from the streaming platform once again until further licensing agreements are made.
Chicago Fire is not your average drama. It follows the men and women of the Chicago Fire Department as they put their lives on the line to save others, all while dealing with their struggles. Led by Captain Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Lieutenant Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney), this diverse and dedicated team includes paramedics Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer) and Gallo (Alberto Rosende), along with firefighters Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) and Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg).
With its high ratings and loyal fanbase that has continued to grow since it first premiered in 2012 until now with nine seasons under its belt – it’s fair to say that it’s time for a binge-watch marathon! Plus there’s nothing like cozying up in front of a warm fire while watching these fearless firefighters battle blazes. Don’t wait any longer; head over to Netflix now. Grab your popcorn, sit back, and get ready to watch the Chicago Fire.
