Viewers will get their first look at the offshoot — which will revolve around the Windy City’s police department — in Chicago Fire‘s May 15 Season 1 finale.

Eastwood will play Officer Jim Barnes.

Coincidentally, the cast also includes Eastwood’s Texas Chainsaw 3D costar, Tania Raymonde.

Executive producer Dick Wolf, who’s had past successes with franchise extensions (Law & OrderLaw & Order: SVULaw & Order: Criminal Intent) for the Peacock Net, will reportedly helm the spinoff with Chicago Fire creators/executive producers Derek Haas and Michael Brandt and executive producer Matt Olmstead.

It remains unclear which, if any, Chicago Fire cast members might jump ship to the police-focused series.

    Both Scott Eastwood and Tania Raymonde have been cast in this, they co-starred together in Texas Chainsaw 3D.

    He is cute!

    I love how the network is talking spin-off but haven’t officially renewed the show for a second season.

    • EatMorePez says:

      To be fair, NBC hasn’t renewed any shows for next season yet.

    • eye says:

      They’re not going to consider spinning off a show this early into it’s existence that they don’t’ intend to renew, so that is a good sign! There may be no announcement til May, even though CBS chose to announce.

      • Martoukian says:

        Seems a little desperate for NBC. I love Chicago Fire, more all the time, and its ratings are encouraging–but it’s far from a blockbuster hit. Granted, this isn’t the kind of spinoff that would sap the energy of the parent show (because it’s unlikely to take anything from the oroginal), but that relationship to Chicago Fire also isn’t going to have much benefit for the spinoff. The whole idea smacks of Dick Wolf overreaching again.

    Don’t forget about the success of Law & Order: Los Angeles and Law & Order: Trial by Jury. Oh wait . . . never mind.

    • Although I agree with you about the ‘success’ of both Law & Order’s: Los Angeles and Trial by Jury — this is a chance for Wolf, Chicago Fire’s writers, and NBC to turn the L&O franchise around. Warren Leight on the dying SVU just isn’t going to cut it; rumor says NBC is considering to swing the ax at the show because of it’s age (good riddance IMO).

      Law & Order: Chicago would be a really good idea for both the City of Chicago, NBC, and Wolf. It’s about ratings and money, Chicago Fire is doing that, the L&O brand is doing that no long.

  5. Leo says:

    Antonio, Dawson’s brother, has to be on the spin off.
