The official Twitter handle of One Chicago also shared the update among its followers on June 30, 2022, quoting, “#OneChicago Wednesdays return September 21.” Take a look at the official post below:  

Moreover, the three Chicago dramas have dominated Wednesday nights in total viewers, and the One Chicago lineup is poised to give NBC just its second Wednesday season-long win in total viewers in 17 years. All three series rank among television’s top seven most-watched dramas, and all three are generating double-digit digital growth this season versus last.

In Live+7 Nielsens, Chicago Med is delivering 11.0 million viewers, Fire is averaging 11.4 million, and P.D. is attracting 11.0 million, with a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 for Med, a 1.9 for Fire, and a 2.0 for P.D.

We don’t know. It’s been a long time coming when you know how these compadres have gone through life and death together.” Further adding, “It’s hard to say goodbye, you know, see you soon, kind of thing. It was bittersweet but I really enjoyed it and we got some laughs out of it.”
