With the exception of vampires, every monster from folklore and mythology is a missing link between apes and humans, and they all seem to love Chicago. To combat the threat, Chicago PD formed Special Unit 2, known to the rest of the department as a deep-cover plainclothes unit they should steer clear of, to hunt them down and eliminate them. Officer Kate Benson, who has always been seeing things out of the corner of her eye since childhood, gets recruited into the unit when she discovers people are being kidnapped by real-life gargoyles for food and is paired up with trigger-happy Nicholas O'Malley.

Why SU2 was canceled
28 January 2007 | by (Rochester, Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

The reason the show was canceled was due to a copyright infringement. It turns out that the show was based on a role playing game and no one got permission from the creator to pinch his stuff.

He tried to talk to the producers and writers but couldn't find any satisfactory answer to the infringement. The producers decided to cancel the show.

I believe the name of the RPG was "Bureau 13", I was also told that the writers had played the game when they were younger.

They probably forgot where they got the idea for the show (I least I hope it was accidental.)
