Chicago Fire Showrunner Hints On When To Expect The Stellaride Wedding

Like plenty of other shows with characters that largely all work in the same profession, NBC's firefighting series "Chicago Fire" is arguably more about interpersonal dramas within its characters' lives than it is about firefighting. Accordingly, then, one ongoing plot thread that has become a focal point for many fans of the show is an ongoing romance between lieutenant Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) and firefighter Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney), referred to by the "Chicago Fire" fanbase as Stellaride.

At first, when Stella and Severide first started up a relationship with one another, fans were divided, with some accusing their dynamic of lacking realism. Since then, however, viewers have seemingly come to recognize their relationship as core to the show, to the extent that fans largely expressed fear and disbelief at what once seemed like the possibility of their separation.

Fortunately for those and other viewers invested in Stellaride, the two are currently engaged to be married. Following their in-fiction engagement, the showrunner of "Chicago Fire" recently revealed in an interview when in the series their marriage might take place.

Most likely, the Stellaride wedding will happen during Season 10

In an interview with Variety focused in part on his work on a new TV series, "Chicago Fire" showrunner Derek Haas revealed that Kelly Severide's marriage to Stella Kidd will likely air some time during Season 10, which is currently ongoing.

"We are on scope for a wedding episode this season. I would write it down — maybe not in ink, but as close to ink as you get," Haas said.

Furthermore, Haas hinted at the prospect of the Stellaride wedding prompting the return of Jesse Spencer's Matthew Casey. Spencer, who was once a series mainstay, left "Chicago Fire" midway into Season 10 after appearing in a grand total 200 episodes. Fortunately, Casey is still very much alive and capable of returning to Chicago for the occasion of his former coworkers' wedding.

"I would be mortified if there was a wedding that didn't include Casey," Haas said, all but confirming that fans missing Spencer's presence on "Chicago Fire" may not have to wait long for his return.
