Now in its second season, the crew of Chicago Firehouse 51 is like a family, often squabbling among themselves, but pulling together in emergencies – except that for them, emergencies happen every day. Budget cuts threaten the firehouse’s closure. Casey becomes a temporary guardian to two young boys. Severide becomes the target of a serial arsonist. Gabby, Otis and Herrmann grow concern over their bar’s competition and of Arthur who demands a higher share of the bar’s profits. After being betrayed by his mother, Captain Bowden, and Gabby, who still has feelings for Casey, Mills decides to apply to Chicago’s police department.

Language on the series of Chicago Fire included uses of “son of a bitch,” “ass,” “damn,” and “hell.” Violence was frequent, with close-ups of bloody trauma wounds, as well as firehouse-themed staples like explosions, burning and collapsing buildings, trapped children, injured and imperiled firefighters, and the like. Sexual content in the series included sexual innuendo and references made by the crew about each other’s personal lives. The third episode had Cruz reply as to why he wanted to live with Severide and Shay, “For the residual tail.”

Chicago Fire is not recommended for viewers under age 18.
