MNT’s 16th season, which debuts Sept. 20, expands its partnership with Wolf Entertainment and Universal Television to include Chicago Fire.
NBC’s Chicago Fire has paused filming its ninth season for two weeks due to multiple positive COVID-19 tests. The Chicago-based firefighter drama shut down production on Sunday, Nov. 8. Several individuals on the Chicago Fire production team, believed to be in Zone 1, produced positive results when tested as part of the show’s COVID safety protocols.
The network hands out three-year renewals to the prolific producer for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and his three Chicago series as part of a new five-year deal to keep his Wolf Entertainment production company at Universal Television.
NBC is staying put in the Windy City: The network has renewed Chicago Fire and its spinoffs Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med, it was announced on Tuesday. Fire has been picked up for season 8, while P.D. and Med will return for their seventh and fifth seasons, respectively.
Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med have all been renewed for the 2017-18 season. However, no decision has yet been made on the fourth addition to the Windy City franchise, Chicago Justice, which premiered earlier this year, or on producer Dick Wolf’s fifth scripted series at NBC, Law & Order: SVU.
A few years ago, the producer behind the Law & Order empire at NBC saw his three primetime shows cut back to one, and was stung when the original series was canceled just shy of setting a record for the longest-running scripted prime-time show. He settled for a tie. Now, Wolf makes the Chicago trilogy of dramas for NBC and is talking about a fourth.
NBC continued handing out early renewals late Monday, picking up Dick Wolf procedurals Chicago Fire and Chicago PD for the 2016-17 season. Chicago Fire will return for its fifth season, while spinoff Chicago PD will begin its fourth season.
The network has tacked on an additional episode to the current seasons of first-year breakout Blindspot and Dick Wolf’s trio of Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Law & Order: SVU — bringing their respective episode counts to 23.
Earning additional season orders for the 2015-16 television season are The Blacklist (season three), Chicago Fire (season four), Chicago PD (season three), Law & Order: SVU (season 17) and Grimm (season five), the network announced. Still waiting for word on their futures are midseason entry Hannibal, which typically is renewed over the summer; as well as NBC’s one returning comedy from last season About a Boy.
Episodes of three of the network’s dramas, Chicago Fire, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Chicago P.D., will share a story line about an effort to crack a child pornography ring.
The Chicago Fire spinoff, which has averaged 6.8 million viewers and a 1.7 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo, will get two additional episodes to its rookie-season order, bringing the episode total to 15.
NBC has handed the expected early renewals to its stronger drama series, freshmen Revolution and Chicago Fire as well as Parenthood, Grimm and veteran Law & Order: SVU. All have received full-season, 22-episode pickups.
The potential project would be set at a Chicago police department as the network looks to build on the steady performer.
The Chicago Fire Soccer Club announced that Fox-owned MNT affiliate WPWR Chicago will be the official television broadcast partner of the Chicago Fire for the 2013 season.

The Rochester, N.Y., NBC affiliate expressed regret on Thursday for televising a repeat of Chicago Fire, a network drama about firefighters, that bore resemblances to the real-life Christmas Eve shooting in nearby Webster, N.Y.
