NBC has renewed hit procedurals “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” for season five and season four, respectively, the network announced Monday night.
The announcement comes on the heels of NBC’s season two renewal for freshman hit “Blindspot,” which has been one of the few success stories of the fall and is the first new show to receive a second season pickup.
NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt announced the news at a Chicago press event for the two shows and their upcoming spinoff, “Chicago Med,” which premieres on Nov. 17.
“This is a great city full of culture and it’s a city full of heroes. Hopefully, we’re depicting them properly in these series. We couldn’t be more proud as a network to have these three shows,” Greenblatt said.
All three series are executive produced by Dick Wolf, who has had plenty of success in establishing highly-rated TV franchises, thanks to his lucrative “Law and Order” empire, which was also established at NBC.
“Fire” and “P.D.” have been solid ratings performers for NBC this season, so the news comes as little surprise — although the fate of Wolf’s remaining “Law and Order” series, “SVU,” has yet to be decided.
