He may have left Mystic Falls, but The Vampire Diaries' star Steven R. McQueen has found a new home in Chicago.

McQueen has joined NBC's Chicago Fire in a recurring role as new candidate Jimmy Borelli, it was announced Tuesday. The new member of Firehouse 51 will make quite the dramatic entrance on his first day of work, and Chief Boden is not a fan.

The show's executive producer Danielle Gelber also shared the news on Twitter.

Are you looking forward to seeing McQueen on Chicago Fire? What trouble do you think he'll get into?

Chicago Fire returns Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 10/9c on NBC.
