NBC's hit series "Chicago Fire" is gearing up for an even more thrilling Season 12 with the addition of Michael Bradway to its ensemble cast. Best known for his standout role in "Marked Men," Bradway is set to make waves in his television debut as the charismatic firefighter Jack Damon, sources affiliated with the production disclosed to Deadline.

Bradway's introduction in episode 10 not only promises fresh narratives but also hints at his potential elevation to a series regular in the upcoming season. This strategic casting move is part of "One Chicago's" dynamic strategy to keep the series fresh and engaging.

Following the exclusive revelation on Friday about Jocelyn Hudon joining as a new paramedic, Bradway's addition signifies NBC's commitment to invigorating its lineup with new talent. This comes on the heels of the departure of beloved cast members Alberto Rosende, Kara Killmer, and Rome Flynn, who have left indelible marks on the series' legacy.

One Chicago Renewed

The renewal of all three "One Chicago" series— "Chicago Med," "Chicago Fire," and "Chicago P.D."—for the 2024-25 season underscores NBC's confidence in the franchise's enduring appeal.

"Chicago Med" enters its 10th season, while "Chicago Fire" blazes into its 13th and "Chicago P.D." locks down its 12th, all produced by Universal Television in collaboration with Wolf Entertainment. This triad of dramas continues to dominate Wednesday nights, with "Chicago Med" leading at 8 p.m., followed by "Chicago Fire" at 9 p.m., and "Chicago P.D." closing the evening at 10 p.m., with episodes promptly available the next day on Peacock.

Michael Bradway's career trajectory from the big screen, with notable appearances in "Marked Men" alongside Alexander Ludwig and "Copperhead" under Jamie Marshall's direction, to a promising television debut, has been nothing short of remarkable.

Represented by Luber Roklin Entertainment and GGSSC, Bradway is poised to bring a new layer of depth and charm to "Chicago Fire," further enriching the captivating world of "One Chicago."
