The brave men and women in blue will be protecting their Windy City for at least three more years. NBC has announced the Chicago PD TV show has been renewed for three more seasons — seasons eight, nine, and 10 — which will keep the cop drama on the air through the 2022-23 broadcast network season.
Airing on Wednesday nights, 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.
Today, it was announced that producer Dick Wolf and his Wolf Entertainment company have signed a new five-year deal to remain at Universal Television. The latter is a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios and has been Wolf’s studio home for the past 36 years. As part of the pact, NBC gave three-year renewals to Chicago PD, Chicago Fire (through season 11), Chicago Med (through season eight), and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (through season 24).
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Dick over the decades and it goes without saying he remains one of the most influential producers in history,” said Bonnie Hammer, Chairman, NBCUniversal Content Studios. “He is a visionary unlike any other whose impact has changed the entire television landscape. We’re beyond thrilled to have Dick and his team remain in the NBCUniversal family for many years to come.”
