“Chicago Justice” has been canceled after just one season at NBC, Variety has learned.
The series from superproducer Dick Wolf followed prosecutor Peter Stone (Philip Winchester), the ambitious Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau for the city of Chicago. The series also starred Carl Weathers, Monica Barbaro, Joelle Carter, and Jon Seda. In addition to Wolf, Michael S. Chernuchin, Matt Olmstead, Derek Haas, Michael Brandt, Arthur Forney, and Peter Jankowski serve as executive producers. Wolf Films produced in association with Universal Television.
The series was one of four “Chicago” shows produced by Wolf, along with “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago Med,” and “Chicago Pd.” All of the other three shows were renewed, as was Wolf’s other NBC series, “Law & Order: Svu.” This fall, NBC will air the first installment of the new Wolf-produced anthology series “Law & Order True Crime,” with Season 1 focusing on the case of the infamous Menendez brothers.

Justice, the fourth addition to Dick Wolf's Chicago franchise, opened softly midseason with a 13-episode run that averaged a 1.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 8.7 million viewers. However, the drama boasted by far the smallest cast of the Chicago franchise, with just five series regulars.
The legal spinoff, starring Philip Winchester and Carl Weathers, leaned decidedly more procedural than its soapier counterparts like Chicago Fire, reminiscent of Wolf's first NBC series, Law & Order. In addition to showrunner Michael S. »

The legal offshoot was not on the network’s list of Chicago renewals earlier this month, which included pickups for Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med. Next season, P.D. will hit its milestone 100th episode, while Fire and Med are headed into their sixth and third season, respectively.
I hear NBC has made its decision on the remaining Chicago drama, opting not to renew freshman Chicago Justice for a second season. Flagship Chicago Fire as well as Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med were renewed earlier this month, while the decision on the newest and lowest-rated entry in the franchise, Chicago Justice, was tabled until after the upfronts. Over the past month of so, there had been some chatter that one of the newer Chicago-set shows, likely Chicago Justice… »

“Dynasty” has reclaimed its night in history.
For much of the primetime soap’s original 1980s run on ABC, it aired on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. And that’s exactly where The CW is putting the show’s reboot, which The CW confirmed was a nod to tradition.
As for The CW’s new lineup, the network will make several other aggressive moves, including shifting “Arrow” to Thursday nights behind “Supernatural”; pairing “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (which shifts to 8 p.m.) with “Jane the Virgin” on Fridays. Also, by moving “Jane” off Mondays, The CW will utilize “Supergirl” to help launch new military drama “Valor.”

DC Comics drama “Arrow” moves to Thursday to reunite with “Supernatural.” “Supergirl” slides down an hour on Monday to 8 p.m. to make room for new military-themed drama “Valor” at 9 p.m. The CW formally presents its schedule later today to advertisers in New York, closing out a busy week of broadcast network upfront events.
“Next season, we will have our strongest schedule ever, with a broad range of series to appeal to both women and men, across a wide range of demographics,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz. “And we will continue to provide our advertisers new opportunities to reach our audience, the youngest of any broadcaster, on every platform.”

What is it with Chicago Fire and deadly finale cliffhangers? Last night’s Season 5 finale ended, quite literally, with a bang. Following the trend of past finales, “My Miracle” started out as just another regular episode. Normal calls to the firehouse, car crashes and bizarre people doing weird stuff. Nothing out of the ordinary. What was out of place, however, were the two conflicts that started last week — Dawson and her father and Cruz blaming Mouch for his suspension — and these two plots drove the episode until the very last minute. Now, I get why Joe was upset,...read more »
