Jocelyn Hudon Promoted to Series Regular on 'Chicago Fire'

Hudon, whose character Lyla Novak was introduced in season 12, has been elevated to series regular status for the upcoming 13th season of the NBC procedural drama series.

AceShowbiz - "Chicago Fire" is gearing up for an exciting 13th season with significant changes to its cast lineup. Jocelyn Hudon, who joined the NBC series in season 12 as paramedic Lyla Novak, has been promoted to series regular.

Hudon's character quickly became an integral part of Firehouse 51, even though she was initially reluctant to join the team. Her promotion follows a season of growing camaraderie, particularly with Hanako Greensmith's Violet Mikami.

Hudon is best known for her roles on FX's "The Strain" and numerous Hallmark films. In addition to her work on "Chicago Fire", she has appeared on shows like "The Irrational", "Dave" and "Acapulco". Her career is on an upward trajectory, with upcoming projects including "Inclusive Space", "Degenerate" and "The Sound". Hudon's versatility and experience suggest she will bring depth to the character of Lyla Novak, further enriching the show.

While Hudon's promotion brings fresh excitement, "Chicago Fire" also bids farewell to some beloved characters. Eamonn Walker, who has portrayed Chief Wallace Boden since the show's inception, has stepped down as a series regular. In the finale of season 12, Boden was promoted to Deputy Commissioner of the CFD, marking a significant shift in his storyline. Walker will continue to appear in a recurring capacity, ensuring fans still catch glimpses of Boden's leadership.

Kara Kilmer's exit as Sylvie Brett, who left mid-season after marrying Matthew Casey, is another major change. Moreover, Alberto Rosende, who played Blake Gallo, did not return for season 12. With these departures, the show will introduce a new chief, Dom Pascal, whose Miami-honed leadership style is a contrast to Boden's. Casting for this role is currently underway.

Season 13 will premiere this fall on NBC, continuing its tradition of airing on One Chicago Wednesdays, flanked by "Chicago Med" and "Chicago P.D.". These evolving dynamics and fresh faces, alongside the steadfast presence of long-time cast members like Taylor Kinney and David Eigenberg, ensure that "Chicago Fire" will continue to captivate its audience.

Whether you're a long-time fan or new to "Chicago Fire", season 13 promises compelling storylines and character developments that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
