Why is the entire One Chicago franchise renewed for more seasons by NBC?
More successful drama shows on NBC have received three-year extensions. Three additional seasons have been ordered for each of Dick Wolf’s three Chicago television series. Chicago P.D., Chicago Med, and the flagship Chicago Fire have all been renewed through season eight. The enormous pickup is a component of a large new contract Wolf recently signed with Chicago studio Universal Television.
According to Deadline, 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.
“Dick Wolf has proven time and time again that he makes shows audiences love,” said Paul Telegdy, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “We are delighted, excited and proud that as part of this epic deal with Wolf Entertainment, NBC’s loyal audience will know that their favorite shows have a certain future for the next three years.”
Following the massive renewals, the three Chicago series will have to negotiate new deals with their casts. Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. have both already gone through that process at least once. Wolf is known for keeping his procedural franchises resilient either by having the series’ signature star on for the entire run, which has been the case with Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: SVU, or successfully reinventing the shows with new characters and new cast members as was the case with the mothership Law & Order series.
