When Chicago Fire returns in the new year it’ll kick things off with a crossover event with Chicago P.D. And we’re certainly not complaining!

In “Some Make It, Some Don’t,” Dawson and Casey fight to remain Louie’s legal guardians while Severide finds himself going back to his old habits.

NBC released promotional photos from part 1 of the 2-part crossover event, which kicks off at a special time (9pm) with Chicago P.D. following with part 2 at 10pm.




Here’s the synopsis for “Some Make It, Some Don’t”:

DAWSON AND CASEY MEET WITH LOUIE’S BIOLOGICAL FATHER – Dawson (Monica Raymund) and Casey (Jesse Spencer) deal with legal matters in hopes of remaining Louie’s legal guardians. Severide (Taylor Kinney) continues in his efforts for a bone marrow procedure to help Anna (guest star Charlotte Sullivan), but when things don’t go as planned, he finds himself slipping back into old habits. Meanwhile, Brett (Kara Killmer) opens up to Dawson and members of Firehouse 51 become competitive, much to the dismay of Chief Boden (Eamonn Walker). David Eigenberg, Miranda Rae Mayo, Yuri Sardarov, Joe Minoso and Christian Stolte also star. Marlyne Barrett and Jeff Hephner also guest star.

Chicago Fire returns on Tuesday, Jan. 3 at a special time 9/8c on NBC.
