It's getting hot in here, so Taylor Kinney, feel free to take off all your clothes.
Which is exactly what he does in NBC's new series from Dick Wolf Chicago Fire, which premieres Wednesday, Oct. 10. And if the promise of a shirtless Kinney, who stole hearts as Hot Uncle Mason on The Vampire Diaries, isn't enough incentive for you, House's Jesse Spencer plays Kinney's broody former BFF in the firefighter drama.
And because we're nothing but generous, we got our hands on this exclusive clip from the series premiere, which features Kinney in all his shirtless glory. Say hello to our six new best friends. (His abs, people. We mean his abs!)
But still, other important stuff happens in the clip, like an introduction to the feud between Kinney and Spencer's characters, which was ignited over the death of one of the firehouse's own. Oh yeah, and Sex and the City fan favorite David Eigenberg (Steve!) pops up.
Chicago Fire debuts Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 10 p.m. on NBC.
(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
