NBC’s Chicago shows do a very good job of proving, on a weekly basis, that they are a part of the same universe. Now, one former Chicago Fire character is becoming a fixture on Chicago Med.
Some series take ages to get from the concept stage to the actual pre-production of the first season, but all it really takes is Dick Wolf and the city of Chicago to grease up the fast track to development. And the latest city-based spinoff, Chicago Law, just took another big step forward.
Television super producer Dick Wolf is a great fan of building shows that can be turned into other shows. He did it to major effect with the (still running) Law & Order franchise, and a few years ago he started the process all over again with Chicago Fire. Now, he’s continuing his Chicago streak with Chicago Law.
We’ve been treated to a trifecta of shows based on emergency responders in Chicago. We first saw Chicago Fire, and were then treated to Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med. It makes sense that they’d want to keep the Chicago train rolling, right? Well, now there are tentative plans for a fourth installment, and here are some possible Chicago Fire spinoffs that we have no interest in seeing, ever.
NBC has been home to one of the most successful television franchises in recent memory with Law & Order, and Dick Wolf managed to take his magic touch from the New York crime procedurals to Chicago. And now the Chicago franchise might see another new show surfacing.
It’s quite the lofty goal of having three connected dramas in one one network. NBC attempted that feat this fall with the newest Chicago Fire spinoff, Chicago Med. While the future of Chicago Med originally looked uncertain, fans now have some reason to celebrate.
NBC is hoping to repeat the magic by putting together another epic crossover event, this time between Fire, P.D. and the brand new series Chicago Med, and it is coming way sooner than we expected.
Shows that do well during their live airing often do way, way better when the final Live + 7 day numbers come in. In addition, shows that only do okay when they first hit the airwaves can sometimes see big gains in the days that follow via other platforms, like DVR and On Demand. Here are the shows crushing DVR gains.
It’s always nice when you find out one of your favorite shows will be around for a bit longer. Well, today is a good day for anyone who enjoys a dramatic TV show set in Chicago. NBC has just renewed Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. for next season.
Few TV shows are ever 100% safe from cancellation before a certain point, and the nagging question behind every cliffhanger is of whether or not the show will have time for resolution. Fortunately for fans of some of NBC’s most notable primetime series, there have been surprisingly early orders for extra episodes.
It’s been a few months since we’ve seen any real info on Casey, Severide and the rest of the Chicago Fire gang. However, this week, the NBC drama released the first Season 4 trailer for the hit series, and it’s a doozy, picking up with Casey’s ultimate kidnapping from the end of last season.
The big networks have all released their respective fall 2015 schedules, but if you want to figure out all the tricky maneuvers you are going to have to make with your DVR, you can take a look at our master list, here. Everything from The Flash to Scorpion has conveniently been listed.
There’s good news on the horizon for fans of Dick Wolf’s Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.. NBC has ordered the next spinoff in the franchise, Chicago Med to series just a few weeks after we began seeing the hospital staff on the small screen.
Yesterday NBC aired a crossover event connecting Chicago Fire with Chicago P.D., which is usual, but also Law and Order: SVU, which is unusual. The three-way crossover was highly advertised by the network leading up to the big event, and apparently the bid paid off.
Casting is already underway for the Chicago Fire spinoff Chicago Med and this week, we learned The Big C and Fargo actor Oliver Platt has been the latest big name to join the series. He's not the only recent name who has signed on.
