All the Signs Taylor Kinney May Be Leaving ‘Chicago Fire’ After Season 9
Taylor Kinney is rumored to be on his way out of Chicago Fire as the season 9 finale approaches. Since the show’s premiere in 2012, Kinney has played Lieutenant Kelly Severide, Rescue Squad 3 as one of the show’s leading men.
But that doesn’t mean he’ll be back the next season. Here are all the signs that Kinney might be leaving Chicago Fire at the end of the ninth season.
Taylor Kinney’s exit rumors are sparked by the showrunner of “Chicago Fire.”
Derek Haas, the showrunner of Chicago Fire, made some huge promises about the end of season 9 during a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight. He also sparked speculation that Kinney’s run on the show was coming to an end.
“We’re going to have one of these massive last ten minutes that will make our audience insane,” Haas said.
“Maybe,” Haas said when asked if the season 9 finale would contain life-or-death cliffhangers. There will be a lot of activity.”
Taylor Kinney’s contract has come to an end.
The fact that Kinney’s contract expires after season 9 is one of the main reasons fans are concerned about his future with Chicago Fire. The last time reports of Kinney’s imminent departure circulated was in 2019, when his contract was set to expire.
Kinney signed a two-year contract to return for seasons 8 and 9 at the time. Jesse Spencer (Captain Matthew Casey, Truck Company 81) and Kinney’s co-star Jesse Spencer (Captain Matthew Casey, Truck Company 81) both renewed their contracts at the same time.
When Kinney and Spencer first joined the cast of Chicago Fire nearly a decade ago, they both signed six-year contracts. Over the years, both have renegotiated higher wages.
‘Chicago Fire’ excels at keeping secrets.
Despite Haas’ promises of a major season finale, that doesn’t necessarily mean Kinney will leave the show. No one has said anything about the 39-year-old actor’s departure, however… This is a condensed version of the plot. I hope you found it entertaining.
