Chicago P.D. starts up and filmed on location last week

Chicago P.D. is up and running in their first week of filming for Season 8.

Cautiously following all Covid-19 guidelines, the Chicago P.D. masked crew began shooting last week at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios and on location over the weekend in a near south side Chicago neighborhood.

With the onset of Covid-19 in March, Chicago PD halted production before they were able to complete filming for Season 7.

We welcome back the cast and crew and officially welcome in Season 8 which is scheduled to premiere on November 11th.
