The series from superproducer Dick Wolf  followed prosecutor Peter Stone (Philip Winchester), the ambitious Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau for the city of Chicago.

The network recently canceled freshman shows “The Blacklist: Redemption,” “Emerald City,” and “Powerless.” NBC has renewed “Law & Order: SVU,” “The Blacklist,” “Blindspot,” “Taken,” “Chicago Med,” “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago PD,” “Shades of Blue,” “Superstore,” “This Is Us” (for two seasons), “Great News,” and “The Good Place.”
