Chicago PD, Fire & Med return to production in September

Sources tell Reel Chicago that the Chicago P.D. team will begin to return the second week of August with a scheduled Chicago shoot date on September 22.

A few Chicago P.D. production personnel have begun to prep for COVID regulations before the crews arrive. Chicago Med and Chicago Fire are also said to follow the same schedule for start up.

Production was shut down on all three sets in March, just one or two episodes away from wrapping their seasons, due to the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
