"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.


The pilot was introduced as planned spinoff in Season 3, Episode 21 of Chicago P.D. , titled "Justice", which filmed in Chicago.

It featured Ryan-James Hatanaka as Investigator Daren Okada who is working alongside fellow Investigator Laura Nagel (Joelle Carter), Philip Winchester as Assistant State's Attorney Peter Stone (Ben Stone's son), Nazneen Contractor as Assistant State's Attorney Dawn Patel, and Carl Weathers as State's Attorney Mark Jefferies.

Shambala Green appears in the backdoor pilot as well representing the boy who nearly killed Officer Sean Roman.

On May 12, 2016, a day after the backdoor pilot aired on Chicago P.D., NBC gave the show a series order.

In the Chicago Justice episode "Fake", Danielle Melnick is revealed to have been made a judge and is seen presiding over the mass murder case Stone is prosecuting.

In the Chicago Justice episode "Uncertainty Principle", Paul Robinette is shown representing Officer Kevin Atwater when he is accused of murder. Paul and Peter share their opposing views on the case and talk about Peter's father, who Peter is later seen calling but his voice isn't heard.
