It seems Chicago Fire will be welcoming at least one new face to its ranks in season 11 as actor Jake Lockett has joined the cast in a mystery role. While details regarding Lockett’s casting have not yet been confirmed by NBC, Lockett has been spotted on the set of season 11 alongside returning star Miranda Rae Mayo seeming to suggest his character might be connected to 51’s latest lieutenant. Considering it’s been a quiet offseason on the casting front, Lockett’s mystery role makes him the first new addition to the season 11 cast and it should be interesting to see how his character will come into the fold at 51.
Who is Jake Lockett playing on Chicago Fire?
At this time, it has not yet been revealed exactly who Jake Lockett will be playing in the upcoming eleventh season of Chicago Fire; however, it appears he’ll be playing a firefighter at 51. In photos snapped from the set of the series, Lockett has been seen sporting a Fire Department shirt hinting that he’ll be playing a new member of Truck or Squad. Considering that filming only just began in late July, it seems likely we should get to meet Lockett’s new character early on in the season and it should be interesting to see just how large of a role he ends up playing this season.
