The world of "One Chicago" is getting a little smaller.
NBC has canceled "Chicago Justice," the latest spinoff in Dick Wolf's franchise, after just one season. The drama was not on the list of renewals during the network's upfront presentation and its future seemed bleak. "Chicago Fire," "Chicago P.D." and "Chicago Med" all received renewals.
All of the "One Chicago" shows post decent ratings, and the original "Chicago Fire" is NBC's second-highest rated drama after freshman breakout "This Is Us."
"Chicago Justice" actually fared better in the ratings than two dramas that were renewed, "Shades of Blue" and "Taken." But it's likely that money played a role in "Justice" getting canned. None of the "One Chicago" shows have been sold into syndication yet.
"Chicago Justice" starred Philip Winchester, Carl Weathers, Jon Seda, Joelle Carter and Monica Barbaro. It's possible that Seda could return to "P.D." or any of the other characters somehow integrated into the other shows.
