For everyone out there who loves Chicago Med and is waiting for more episodes, you likely know at this point that you’ll be waiting a while still. New episodes are going to return on NBC starting next month, and in this article we’re kicking off a little more speculation on the subject of crossovers.

Are there some big ones coming up? At the moment, not so much. Earlier this fall, show executive producers Andrew Schneider and Diane Frolov told CarterMatt that there were little ideas that they had to feature Chicago Fire and Chicago PD characters, but nothing that was so big to be hit with the epic “crossover” label.
So is there a way to still make that happen? We still like to think so given that there is so much time still left in the season. There are also a number of interesting ways in which it could happen, but our #1 primary would be finding a way to get some of the doctors out of the hospital and doing some different things, whether it be tending to an emergency at firehouse 51, providing medical information for a case, or just being a part of an emergency that just happened on someone’s day off.
One of the things that Chicago Med did right with the controversial Will Halstead storyline from earlier this season is that it gave us a chance to see Will out of the hospital doing a wide array of different things. What they did wrong, however, was putting him in a situation where he was hiding information from Natalie when, at least on the surface. It feels like there was a different way in which it could’ve been handled. Getting the characters out of the hospital allows for more of their humanity to creep in, and it also allows us to see more of what really makes them who they are as well as some of the people they care about. This sort of stuff is important to shaping the overall world of the show and providing some compelling subject matter for the writers to showcase in the future.
Here’s to hoping that when Chicago Med does come back, there are some new creative twists and turns that keep us guessing and excited for the future.
