It’s not just the firefighter neighbors who will drop in on Chicago PD, NBCs midseason police-centric Chicago Fire spin-off. Dick Wolf’s new cop show gets an official welcome to the Law & Order family when SVU detectives Fin (Ice-T) and Rollins (Kelli Giddish) share their expertise in an episode most likely airing after February’s Winter Olympics, TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively.
The New York sex-crime cops visit the Windy City precinct, PD executive producer Matt Olmstead confirms, for “a case that involves a serial rapist/killer, who the cops believe started his spree in New York and moved on to Chicago. Finn and Rollins are brought in by Detective Voight [Jason Beghe] who heads the [Intelligence] Unit,” Olmstead says. “They work very well with their Chicago counterparts.” Sounds like a return crossover visit to the Big Apple could be in the future.
Chicago PD premieres Wednesday, Jan. 8 at 10/9c, following Law & Order: SVU (9/8c).
