Chicago PD follows Detective Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) and his elite Intelligence Unit at the Chicago Police Department combat brutal offences and bring the criminals of Chicago to justice. Despite the last episode of the crime drama being left on a cliffhanger, Chicago PD isn’t planning to air on its usual NBC slot next week. Unfortunately, it appears fans of the procedural drama are going to be waiting for at least a fortnight for the show to make a return. According to NBC’s broadcast schedule, there is no new episode of Chicago PD next week or even the following week.
Meaning the earliest that fans could expect Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer) and the rest of the Chicago crew is on Wednesday, March 22. However, this is a pretty normal procedure for NBC around this time of year as the network most likely wants to build momentum on episodes during the all-important February sweeps period.Apart from NBC’s potential schedule shake-up, not many details have been released as to why the show has been delayed for the next two weeks. In the meantime, fans can look forward to seeing more heightened drama and character-specific stories, following what the season has already given fans so far.
Fans can hope to follow the storyline of the continuing recovery of Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati), who is now coming to terms with the full extent of her post-traumatic stress. The writers have been hinting at Kim’s issues for a while now, with it being quite clear she needs to begin treatment now and it’s likely there will be some more struggles ahead for her.
