Severide’s (Taylor Kinney) past will soon come back to haunt him again on Chicago Fire, but this time, it has nothing to do with his complicated romantic entanglements. With Severide’s mom Jennifer Sheridan (Kim Delaney) already headed to town, we now know that his father Benny (Treat Williams) will also drop by for another one of his frustrating visits, and according to showrunner Derek Haas, that anticipated family reunion won’t exactly be a happy one.
“You’ll see Mama Severide and Papa Severide, who did not have the best relationship, coming together in ways that will torment their son,” showrunner Derek Haas tells TV Guide.
Given that Jennifer suffered a small breakdown after Benny cheated on her — forcing Severide to live with Chicago Med’s April Sexton (Yaya DaCosta) for a short period — you can expect major fireworks when Mama and Papa Severide end up in the same room together. However, they won’t be the only ones drudging up drama for poor Severide.

The firefighter’s former mentor Chief Grissom (Gary Cole) will continue to try and use Severide to fuel his own selfish ambitions. “Part of what happens as he’s trying to groom Severide is he thinks, ‘Oh well maybe there’s still some gas left in my own tank and maybe I can start affecting things a little bit more since Severide’s not listening to me,’” Haas explains.
And since Grissom is an old friend of Benny, there’s no telling how he’ll use that relationship to manipulate our beloved hero. Brace yourselves, Severide’s in for a world of torment.
Chicago Fire returns Thursday, Jan. 4 at 10/9c on NBC.
