Chicago Justice will premiere on NBC at midseason, but fans will see members of the cast from the new series pop up again before that. With Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD premiering their new seasons in the fall, Dick Wolf and his writers will have plenty of chances to put the Chicago Justice crew in front of the viewers.
There are plans to show off Philip Winchester and his cast in episodes of the other series before the midseason launch of Chicago Justice.
Matt Olmstead teased the following about the plans to The Hollywood Reporter:
“Yeah, for sure, we don’t know the exact specifics but I was talking to Dick about it and we definitely want to use whatever episodes we have on the other shows before Justice airs to help platform. And it’s not even that formal of an approach, it’s just to kind of get to know ’em. They drop in for a Molly’s scene or maybe there would be a couple-episode arc, but more it’s just to show them in that universe so that when that show launches, the audience knows them that much better.”
After Chicago Justice premieres, Dick Wolf has already teased the possibility of a fifth series in the franchise.
