‘Chicago Fire’s Jocelyn Hudon Upped To Series Regular

EXCLUSIVE: Chicago Fire newcomer Jocelyn Hudon has been upped to series regular beginning Season 13, sources tell Deadline.

Hudon joined the Season 12 cast in April as Lyla Novak, a new paramedic at Firehouse 51 who at first loves freelancing but reluctantly agrees to join Violet (Hanako Greensmith) as an official part of the team. In a short time, Lyla has proven to be an integral member of the paramedics with leadership skills that will go far at 51. She also realizes that standing still and being part of something big feels pretty nice, too.
