‘Chicago Fire’ Co-Creator Derek Haas to Exit One Chicago Franchise, Wolf Entertainment

Haas will leave after this season to create a new series


“Chicago Fire” co-creator Derek Haas is exiting the One Chicago franchise he helped develop and Dick Wolf’s production company Wolf Entertainment after 10 years, TheWrap has confirmed.

Haas is set to make his departure next year, when the TV season wraps up, in order to develop new series.

The longtime producer and writer currently serves as co-showrunner of “Chicago Fire” and CBS’ “FBI: International,” the latter of which he co-created with Wolf.

Haas joined Wolf Entertainment after meeting with the company in 2011, launching “Chicago Fire” (and its subsequent franchise) along with co-creator Michael Brandt in 2012. The show, currently on Season 11, is also co-showrun by Andrea Newman.

Haas also executive produces spinoffs “Chicago P.D.” (in its 10th season) and “Chicago Med” (in its eighth season). “Chicago Med” recently saw the departure of cast member Asjha Cooper, who finished her two-season tenure as Dr. Vanessa Cooper on Wednesday night.

Variety first reported the news.
