Chicago Justice, also a Wolf-created series, debuts Mar. 5 at 9/8c on NBC and is the fourth show in the Chicago franchise. It spun off from Chicago P.D. last May.

Wolf has been keen on intertwining his two successful franchises. In the backdoor pilot for Chicago Justice, Lorraine Toussaint reprised her Law & Order role of defense attorney Shambala Green. Chicago Justice showrunner Michael S. Chernuchin also wrote for Law & Order while Brooks was on the show.

Chicago Justice premieres Sunday, Mar. 5 at 9/8c.
