The end of “Chicago Fire” season 2 is near, but before NBC closes this chapter, they’ve decided to give you one additional crossover from this massive world they have created.
In a post on Instagram, Sophia Bush confirmed that she is going to be guest-starring on the final episode of the season as Erin Lindsay, her character from “Chicago PD.” This is not the first crossover that Bush has done by any means, as she has done multiple episodes of “Chicago Fire” dating back to the first season when her character was introduced. She was also given a chance to appear on an episode of “Law & Order: SVU” this season, just to give that new show that much more of an additional boost.
“Chicago PD” and “Chicago Fire” have not necessarily become runaway hits for NBC by any means, but they have done enough for the network to feel like there is a potential franchise here. Both bring something a little bit different to TV than you get from most other series out there, at least in that they are more focused on the sense of fraternity and the politics of being in the police or fire department hen just catching some sinister bad guy or telling a whodunnit style mystery. Both shows have already been renewed for another season; it’s ironically “Law & Order: SVU,” which is now in its 15th season, that is the one still waiting to find out what lies on the other side of the rainbow.
The “Chicago FIre” finale will air next month, and is still multiple weeks out. We’ll have more news as we creep up to the time of it airing.
