NBC Cancels ‘Chicago Justice’

The 'Chicago' Set Drama Franchise is Back to Three Hours

NBC, surprisingly, has opted against a second season of “Chicago Justice,” the fourth Chicago-set drama in the Dick Wolf franchise. The series debuted on March 1 and aired for 13 episodes. The now final episode aired on May 14.

The remaining three entries – “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago PD” and “Chicago Med” – will be returning for seasons six, five and three, respectively, in 2017-18. “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago PD” will remain in their established time periods – “Chicago Fire” in the Tuesday 10 p.m. hour (out of “The Voice”) and “Chicago PD” Wednesday at 10 p.m. (out of “Law & Order: SVU”). “Chicago Med” will return in midseason.
