NBC’s One Chicago franchise welcomes its fourth series March 1 with a three-hour crossover ending in a special preview of Chicago Justice.
Cast members and executive producer Dick Wolf talk about the impact of the four-show franchise in the video here.
“Chicago Fire” kicks off the event, airing on a special night and time. “Chicago P.D.” follows, airing an hour earlier than normal. NBC then offers up a preview of “Justice,” which settles into its regular night at 9/8c Sunday, March 5.
And fear not, “Chicago Med” fans. Your favorite doctors and nurses will appear in all three hours of the crossover.
The crossover follows Firehouse 51 fighting a harrowing warehouse fire that seriously injures Det. Olinsky’s daughter and the investigation to find the arsonist. When the suspect goes to trial, his high-powered attorney tries every trick in the book to get him acquitted.
Truck and squad are called to aid in a massive all-city response when countless victims are trapped by a blaze. An old, ill-equipped factory-turned-live/work space quickly turns into a firestorm. The dire situation becomes personal when it is discovered that one of Chicago PD’s own has a family member at the scene. With the rescued victims in need of serious medical attention, the doctors and nurses of Chicago Med are tested as the major influx of patients are brought through their doors. In the aftermath, the building owner steps forward to cooperate with the ongoing investigation, but the situation takes a sudden and unexpected turn.

“Fake,” 10/9c March 1
Firehouse 51 responded to a horrific warehouse fire that killed 39 people. This led the Chicago P.D. on a manhunt for the suspect. Now with someone in custody for both arson and multiple murders, ADA Peter Stone gets to work. He and his team, including lead investigator Antonio Dawson, work to bring some peace and resolution to the many families and friends of those lost—including one very close to home. That’s when they face a hotshot attorney (guest star Bradley Whitford) with tricks up his sleeve. A dicey confession, incriminating evidence and a questionable motive also could derail their case.
“Justice” cast: Philip Winchester, Jon Seda, Carl Weathers, Joelle Carter and Monica Barbaro
