Chicago P.D. Promises to be a "More Aggressive" Crime Show Thanks to an Unlikely Leader

Coming from the man behind the long-running Law & Order franchise — which has spawned four spin-offs since the mothership's 1990 debut — it should come as no surprise that the Dick Wolf-produced Chicago Fire would meet a similar fate.

Chicago Fire Boss Teases Shay's Fresh Start, a "Powerful" Fall Finale and a Big Cliff-Hanger

Paramedic Leslie Shay (Lauren German) has never had the best timing on Chicago Fire. Last season, she jumped back into a relationship with her pregnant ex-girlfriend, Clarice, just before Clarice found out she had to move away. Then, she tried to have a baby with her best friend Severide (Taylor Kinney) just before his ex-girlfriend showed up at their doorstep pregnant and claiming that the baby was his.
