There are a LOT of shows in the Chicago TV family, but sadly one of them will not be going forward. NBC has officially canceled Chicago Justice ahead of its second season.
Although most of Dick Wolf’s Chicago-centered series are major hits for the network, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that the newest edition to One Chicago — which is made up of Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., Chicago Med and until recently, Chicago Justice, didn’t live up to expectations.
The other three series from Wolf were, however, picked up for another season during this month’s NBCUniversal Upfront presentations, so at least fans have those shows to tune back into next fall.
Chicago Justice followed Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) as the Chief of the Special Prosecutions Bureau, who always seemed to be fighting with his boss, Cook County’s Attorney Mark Jefferies (Carl Weathers).
We are still waiting to hear if Jon Seda, who moved from Chicago P.D. to Chicago Justice, will be returning to the show he started on, or if this is the last we’ll see of him in the Chicago universe.
“To the cast & fans of @NBCChicagoFire @NBCChicagoPD @NBCChicagoMed & @chicagojustice I’m forever grateful for the ride we shared 2gether!👊🏻,” Seda tweeted after the news was announced.
Although Seda appears to be saying goodbye to Chicago fans, we’re not convinced his character Antonio Dawson won’t be popping back up on one of the three remaining series.
