Hall of Fame producer Dick Wolf and Wolf Entertainment have signed a new five-year deal to remain at Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios, his studio home for the past 36 years. As part of Wolf’s new pact and in an unprecedented show of support for four of its highly popular dramas, NBC has given three-year pickups to its “Chicago” brand – “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.” and “Chicago Med” – as well as fan favorite and record-breaker “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” the longest-running live-action primetime program in TV history, now in its 21st season. Wolf’s deal comes on the heels of his recent pact with NBCUniversal’s soon-to-be-launched streaming service Peacock, where Wolf’s extensive library – including both the “Law & Order” and “Chicago” franchises – will be available for users.

Chicago Fire Season 9
Chicago Fire is an American action-drama TV series created by Michael Brandt and Derek Haas with Dick Wolf as an executive producer. It is the first installment of Dick Wolf’s Chicago franchise. The series premiered on NBC on October 10, 2012. The show follows the firefighters and paramedics working at Firehouse 51 of the Chicago Fire Department, home of Truck Company 81, Engine Company 51, Squad Company 3, Ambulance 61, and Battalion 25 as they risk their lives to save and protect the civilians of Chicago.
Following the death of veteran Firefighter Andrew Darden, loyalties fracture and divide as Captain (previously Lieutenant) Matthew Casey (Jesse Spencer), officer-in-charge of Truck Company 81, and Lieutenant Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney), officer-in-charge of Squad Company 3, blame each other for the death of their long-time friend and colleague. Severide is consumed with even more guilt when he learns Darden’s wife also blames him for the tragedy. Despite their differences, the firehouse comes together after the near death of Truck Company 81 Firefighter Christopher Hermann (David Eigenberg).
Alongside the firefighters are paramedics Gabriela Dawson and Leslie Shay. Shay dies in the season 3 premiere “Always”. Dawson leaves Chicago after the season 6 finale “The Grand Gesture”, but briefly returns in the season 7 premiere “A Closer Eye”.
Some new faces appear in the firehouse as the series progresses. Under the leadership of 25th Battalion Chief Wallace Boden (Eamonn Walker), the firehouse family faces life or death decisions every day, but they treat each other like family, looking out for each other no matter what happens.
On May 9, 2018, NBC renewed the series for a seventh season. The season premiered on September 26, 2018. On February 26, 2019, NBC renewed Chicago Fire for an eighth season, which premiered on September 25, 2019.
Chicago Fire Season 8 was supposed to have 23 episodes. But due to the coronavirus outbreak the production was suspended on March 13, 2020 and the season wrapped up with 20 episodes.
