‘Chicago Justice’ Renewed or Cancelled: Will the Show Return for Season 2?

While Chicago Fire, PD, and Med have all been renewed, NBC’s Chicago Justice is still in limbo, awaiting an official verdict.

Season 1 of the newest Chicago spin-off premiered on March 1, 2017, and centers on Peter Stone, the Deputy Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau, and the rest of the prosecutors and investigators at the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. The show averaged a 1.12 rating in the 18-49 demographic, and 6.13 million viewers. (For comparison: Chicago Med averaged a 1.23 and 6.63 million viewers, Chicago PD averaged a 1.38 and 6.53 million viewers, and Chicago Fire averaged a 1.53 and 7.08 million viewers.)

If Chicago Justice does return, it could come back in the fall, or in January 2018. The other show that still has yet to be decided on is Trial & Error. According to TV By the Numbers, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt has said that for Chicago Justice, it may just come down to finding the right spot for it later in the season. “We were so rich with our shows and moving things around, we decided we just didn’t have a place for it yet,” he says. “… We’re still putting pieces together for post-Olympics and summer.”

Which shows has NBC definitively renewed? America’s Got Talent, Better Late Than Never, The Blacklist, Blindspot, Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, Chicago PD, Days Of Our Lives, The Good Place, Great News, Law & Order: Special Victims UnitThe Night Shift, Superstore, Taken, This Is Us – Through Season 3, Timeless, andThe Voice.

Justice is the fourth series in Dick Wolf’s Chicago franchise. It debuted to less-than-great ratings, and has become the least-watched of the Chicago shows. The show stars Philip Winchester as Peter Stone, Jon Seda as Chief Investigator Antonio Dawson, Joelle Carter as Laura Nagel, Monica Barbaro as Anna Valdez, and Carl Weathers as Mark Jefferies.

When the show premiered in March, it received relatively positive reviews from Variety, who called its content “solid, satisfying stuff.” USA Today, meanwhile, described the show as “irredeemably ordinary as TV gets.”
