A dramatic cliffhanger featuring Jay Halstead closed Chicago P.D.’s fall season 7 finale in November (Jesse Lee Soffer). Chicago P.D. Season 7’s winter debut will not air until January 8, 2020, making the situation much more difficult. One Chicago supporters will have a cold start to the season as a result of this. The only thing that can help us forget about the Chicago P.D. fall finale is to pick a new streaming show to watch during the little break.
In 2014, Dick Wolf and Matt Olmstead founded Chicago P.D., which is now the city’s police department. As the 21st District of the Chicago Police Department tries to bring justice and overcome their own personal and professional problems, it follows. With the cancellation of Chicago Justice, NBC’s One Chicago brand has now grown to include Chicago P.D. as the fourth show in the series, following Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago Justice. Since the show has been running for seven seasons now, we’re eager to watch how the cast and characters continue to grow and change over the course of Chicago P.D. Season 7.
Most Chicago P.D. fans are already familiar with the other One Chicago series, so we omitted them from this list in order to keep things simple. The show’s fans may be interested in a range of police-related dramas, as well as a few light-hearted comedies, that have some similarities to Chicago P.D. Chicago P.D.’s return may be a little more bearable with the help of these streaming shows
1. NYPD Blue (Hulu)
From 1993 until 2005, ABC showed NYPD Blue. Because to Dennis Franz’s complex portrayal of Andrew Sipowicz in all 12 seasons, NYPD Blue has a timeless quality. In addition to David Caruso, Jimmy Smits, Amy Brenneman, James McDaniel, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar, there were a number of additional key and supporting characters in the series. With its graphic representation of New York City crime, NYPD Blue was subject to censorship concerns at the time. As a result, NYPD Blue has become one of the longest-running primetime television shows of all time. For its screenplay and acting, it’s widely regarded as one of the best. Fans of Chicago P.D. will like NYPD Blue because both series deal with the mental and physical strains of trying to deliver justice to a corrupt city in a similar fashion.
2. NCIS (CBS: All Access)
A record 17th season of CBS’s successful drama NCIS was aired in September, making it the second longest-running show on television. “NCIS” is about a group of extremely skilled and knowledgeable Naval Criminal Investigative Service officers led by Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon). When a crime involving a Navy or Marine Corps personnel occurs, these officers are called to duty. The popular show incorporates comic aspects to lighten the mood compared to other criminal dramas.
3. Blue Bloods (CBS: All Access, Hulu)
Frank Reagan, the father of the Reagan family, serves as the New York City Police Commissioner (Tom Selleck). As a result of the Reagans’ long history in law enforcement, each member of the family represents a different aspect of the justice system. At its core, Blue Blood is a family drama that explores the challenges and successes that every family experiences. Family is important in both Chicago P.D. and Blue Bloods, however in Chicago P.D. it is something you create, whereas in Blue Bloods it is something you inherit.
4. 9-1-1 (Hulu)
They worked with Fox again to make a procedural drama called 9-1-1, which features Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear as producers. 9-1-1 follows Los Angeles first responders as they deal with the most recent crisis in both their professional and personal lives. With a January 2020 release date for the spin-off series 9-1-1: Lone Star, 9-1-1 is on its way to becoming Fox’s equivalent of One Chicago. Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, and Jennifer Love Hewitt are all part of the 9-1-1 cast.
5. Law and Order: SVU (Hulu)
Due to the fact that both Law and Order: SVU and Chicago P.D. were created by Dick Wolf, they can be described as existing in the same universe. Olivia Benson, played by Mariska Hargitay, heads the NYPD’s Special Victims Unit. There have been 21 seasons of Law & Order: SVU, making it now the longest-running show on TV. As a result of Dick Wolf’s work on Law and Order and SVU, One Chicago was able to follow in his footsteps.
6. Bosch (Prime Video)
Follows LAPD Detective Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) as he tries to overcome both personal and professional obstacles. Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch novels serve as a source of inspiration for Bosch. The show’s executive producer is Michael Connelly. City of Bones, The Last Coyote and The Concrete Blonde are only a few examples of Harry Bosch’s crime novels that are included in each season of Bosch. Both Bosch and Chicago P.D. draw inspiration for their fictitious cases from real-life events, and this is a common thread between the two shows.
7. The Shield (Hulu)
For seven seasons, Michael Chiklis portrayed Vic Mackey on The Shield. Because the primary characters in The Shield are just as corrupt as the criminals they are after, the show is extremely different from typical police dramas. For his portrayal as Vic in the FX series, actor Michael Chiklis won an Emmy. Even though The Shield has more mature subjects and a harsher tone, it also shows the occasional blurred edges and instability of justice in some episodes.
8. Southland (Hulu)
In 2009, Southland premiered on NBC. NBC picked it up for a second season, however the network chose to terminate it before the second season aired. To make up for the loss, TNT picked up Southland. TNT broadcast the programme for another four seasons. There was a distinct shift in focus from the traditional procedural drama style to the lives of the characters played by Michael Cudlitz, Ben McKenzie, Regina King, Shawn Hatosy, and C. Thomas Howell on the show Southland. Those who are already fans of Chicago P.D. will love Southland because both shows focus on the people behind the badge.
9. Monk (Prime Video)
Adrian Monk is played by Tony Shalhoub in the USA Network television series Monk. In its eight seasons on USA Network, Monk became the most-watched scripted television series on the cable network. ‘Monk’ Unlike other procedural shows, Monk invented a cop who became a private investigator who wasn’t the standard hard-charging thug. Adrian Monk, on the other hand, was a figure driven by fears, anxieties, and obsessive actions. It was Tony Shalhoub’s portrayal of a police officer on television that revolutionized the image of how cops should appear and behave. Fans of Chicago’s P.D. who want to branch out from the usual procedural fare might check out Monk.
10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Hulu)
The crew of the New York City Police Department’s Brooklyn 99th precinct is the focus of the show Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The cast of this former Fox popular comedy is led by Andre Braugher and Andy Samberg (now NBC hit comedy). When it comes to solving crimes and sparing people from harm, Brooklyn Nine-Nine takes a lighthearted approach. Chicago P.D. could have been Brooklyn Nine-Nine if it were a comedy rather than a drama. As long as NBC has both Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Chicago P.D., we’re all simply waiting for the Law & Order: SVU, One Chicago, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine crossover event; come on!
