The lack of storyline for Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) has fans of Chicago Fire worrying that the character is being written out, but nothing could be further from the truth.




Is Kidd leaving Chicago Fire?
In an interview with CarterMatt, Chicago Fire showrunner Derek Haas indicated that there is plenty of drama ahead for the character, who recently passed her lieutenant’s test. For now, she is off screen visiting another city where she is launching another chapter of Girls on Fire, the program that she created and is near and dear to her heart.

What happened to Stella on Chicago Fire?
Haas said, “She has other things going on in her life… namely, some Girls on Fire related business takes up her time.”

Stella was absent from the 200th episode of the series, so she wasn’t able to say goodbye to Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer), but Spencer indicated during an interview with Parade.com and other reporters that he may return to the show—at least for a guest spot or two.

“With Jesse possibly coming back at some point in this season, we’ll see a Kidd/Casey scene I’m sure,” Haas said in that same interview.That scene could be at Kidd’s wedding to Severide (Taylor Kinney), because Casey is supposed to be Severide’s best man. And when asked by Parade.com if he would return for the wedding, Spencer said, “How could I not?”

While Haas added, “We’re in the camp of whenever Jesse wants to come and do an episode with us, we will move mountains to make that happen. So, we’ve been talking. We’ve got some ideas and I would say you’ve hit the nail on the head as to what some of those moments might be.”

Chicago Fire is only five episodes into its 10th season, and with Spencer’s departure in the 200th episode, the series needed to spend time to build his exit story to make it have a ring of truth to it. Now that he is gone, there is room for Kidd’s story to unfold, which, hopefully, will include both her career trajectory and her engagement and upcoming wedding to Severide.

But here’s a crazy thought. When Casey was in Firehouse 51, there were too many officers, and it looked as if Kidd would have to transfer to another firehouse in order to serve at her rank. But with Casey’s exit, what if Kidd will be his replacement in command of Truck 81?

“We’re doing a major storyline over who’s going to be the next commanding officer of Truck 81, so I don’t want to spoil anything but that becomes a storyline through the winter break because, obviously, there is some shifting chairs within the firehouse,” Haas said in the same interview he discussed Casey’s departure.
