"The State's Attorney's dedicated team of prosecutors and investigators navigates heated city politics and controversy head-on while fearlessly pursuing justice. As they take on the city's high stakes and often media-frenzied cases, they must balance public opinion, power struggles within the system and their unwavering passion for the law. These are their stories."

Chicago Justice is an American legal drama television series created by Dick Wolf as the first spin-off from Chicago P.D. and the fourth installment of Dick Wolf’s Chicago Franchise. The series premiered on NBC as a special preview on March 1, 2017. The show follows the prosecutors and investigators at the Cook County State’s Attorney's Office as they navigate their way through Chicago area politics, the legal arena, and media coverage while pursuing justice.

On May 22, 2017, NBC announced that Chicago Justice has been cancelled after one season. This is the first Chicago series to be cancelled.


Chicago Justice did not have a crossover event with the Law & Order franchise like its sister shows Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. However, characters from Chicago Justice went on to appear in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, while former Law & Order franchise actors reprised their roles on Chicago Justice.

Philip Winchester, who played Assistant State's Attorney Peter Stone, the son of Benjamin Stone, appeared as a main character in the second half of SVU's nineteenth season, as well as all of its twentieth season. Carl Weathers, who played State's Attorney Mark Jefferies, guest-starred as that same character in the latter season as well.

Shambala Green appears in the Chicago P.D. backdoor pilot, representing the boy who nearly killed a police officer. Danielle Melnick is revealed to have been made a judge in Chicago, and Paul Robinette also appears.
