One for the books! Taylor KinneyIs content with the way Chicago Fire’s season 10 finale — and Kelly Severide and Stella Kidd’s wedding — turned out.
“It was a special,” the 40-year-old actor, who has been playing Lieutenant Severide since 2012, exclusively told Us WeeklyMonday, May 16th at the NBCUniversal upfront display of the onscreen nuptials. “It was a family affair. It was a big event.”
The Pennsylvania native noted that there’s “always” going to be “plot twists” in the One Chicago universe, but he is confident that “the fans will love it.”
Kinney added: “I hope they get as much out of it watching as we did shooting it. It was great. We had a lot of fun.”
Fans of the NBC series have been waiting for years to see Kinney’s character find his happily ever after, especially after Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) joined the cast during season 4 in 2016. The TV couple got married in season 9. Despite their ups and downs, the couple have been preparing for a fiery wedding all season.
Stellaride’s nuptials will also signify the return of Jesse Spencer’s Captain Matt Casey. After having starred alongside Kinney from the beginning of the firefighter drama, the 43-year old Australian actor quit the series in October 2021.

It was gusty, windy, freezing,” Kinney told UsOn Monday, he explained that the crew had to change things up in order to get the shot. “We changed locations and we did it on the river in Chicago and the backdrop is amazing. It was a beautiful day.”
The Vampire Diaries alum continued: “Some of the crew [was] involved and we had a stunt coordinator … who got dressed up in a tux and he was in it for a brief scene.”
Kinney revealed that he has “no clue” whether Severide and Kidd will have children come season 11 but he told Use he’s “excited” to see what happens in the future.
“It’s never lost on me how special it is to be a part of something with [the] longevity this has, and it’s a testament to Dick Wolf [and] the team of people that he puts together,” the Zero Dark ThirtyStar added. “I’m excited for season 11. I’m not privy to script’s information of where they’re going with it.”
