An anonymous source informed Deuxmoi on Instagram that they spotted Kinney leaving set along with a photo.
"I guess those stories about Taylor Kinney leaving Chicago Fire weren't true," the source said in a message.
The season nine finale left Kelly Severide (Kinney), Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso), Harold Capp (Randy Flagler) and Tony (Anthony Ferraris) trapped in a sinking ship with the rest of the crew watching from the shore, which cast doubt over their futures on the show.
The next season reportedly began filming earlier this month, Reel Chicago reported.
NBC previously announced that Chicago Fire and its two sister series, Chicago Med and Chicago PD, will return for the fall line-up in September.
"Hopefully, the second episode, like we've done in the past, will be a major crossover," showrunner Derek Haas told TVLine about what comes next for the three shows.
"We've already started talking about ideas for it and to do one in the vein of Infection, where it was three big episodes with all three shows represented in all three hours," he explained. "That would be ideal."
While Haas did not discuss Kinney, castmate Miranda Rae Mayo may or may not have dropped a hint. The 30-year-old shared a photo of Johnny Depp and Amy Locane on the set of 1990's Cry Baby on her Instagram Story where director John Waters talked them through the iconic kissing scene and tagged Kinney with the caption "This is our lives."
The post gave fans hope that Kinney will be appearing in some capacity in season ten.
Still, fans will just have to wait for the September 22 premiere to find out.
