In season seven, NBC’s Chicago PD TV series attracted 10% more viewers than the previous season. That’s a very rare thing these days. Will the ratings continue to rise in season eight or, will they drop? Will Chicago PD be cancelled or renewed for season eight? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A police drama, Chicago PD stars Jason Beghe, Jesse Lee Soffer, Patrick John Flueger, Marina Squerciati, LaRoyce Hawkins, Amy Morton, and Tracy Spiridakos. 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 (Jason 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.
