A trio of shows that take place in Chicago — “Chicago Med,” “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago PD” have all been renewed at NBC, TheWrap has learned.
A spokesperson from the network confirms that no decision has been made yet on “Chicago Justice.”
“Justice” was the fourth series ordered in the “Chicago” franchise, which is spearheaded by “Law & Order” creator Dick Wolf. It stars Philip Winchester, Jon Seda, Joelle Carter, Monica Barbaro and Carl Weathers as prosecutors and investigators in the Cook County State Attorney’s office as they solve cases across the Windy City.
The plots of the other three follow the same formula, depicting the lives of emergency room workers, firefighters and police officers across the city. They all take place within the same universe, and often cross over with each other.
All series have also crossed over with Wolf’s “Law & Order.”
All three of Wolf’s other “Chicago” shows have been solid ratings performers for the network. “Med,” for example, was the top scripted show of its Nov. 17 premiere night, earning a 2.2 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, along with 8.6 million total viewers.
“Chicago Justice” just premiered on March 1, but it got off to a strong start despite a three-hour crossover premiere event. It led the network to a ratings win on its premiere day.
