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.
