Help is on the way. NBC has renewed its Chicago PD TV show for a sixth season, with a start date TBD. The procedural is the second series (following Chicago Fire) in Dick Wolf’s successful Chicago franchise on the Peacock Network.
An NBC police procedural, Chicago PD stars Jason Beghe, Jon Seda, Jesse Lee Soffer, Patrick John Flueger, Marina Squerciati, Elias Koteas, LaRoyce Hawkins, Amy Morton, and Tracy Spiridakos. Mykelti Williamson recurs. The drama centers on the men and women of the Chicago Police Department’s District 21, who pursue the perpetrators of Chi-town’s major street crimes. Detective Sgt. Hank Voight (Beghe) is at the heart of the war on crime in Chicago and will do anything to bring criminals to justice.
