Though it can feel like there’s very little justice when it comes to TV cancellations and renewals, the most popular series usually end up staying on the air for many years. Thankfully for fans of Chicago PD, there’s no need to worry about this show being cancelled by NBC anytime soon. The police drama series has already been renewed for seasons nine and 10, through 2022-23. Will the series continue to do well in the ratings? Could the peacock network’s executives end up regretting the multi-year renewal? Stay tuned.
Chicago PD stars Jason Beghe, Jesse Lee Soffer, Patrick John Flueger, Marina Squerciati, LaRoyce Hawkins, Amy Morton, Tracy Spiridakos, and Cleveland Berto. This TV show follows the personal and professional lives of the men and women of the Chicago Police Department’s elite Intelligence Unit. They combat the city’s most heinous offenses including organized crime, drug trafficking, and high-profile murders. Detective Sgt. Hank Voight (Beghe) is at the center of the department’s war on crime and he’ll do anything to bring criminals to justice. The series also features crossovers with Chicago Med and Chicago Fire.
