NBC’s hit TV series, ‘Chicago PD’, ‘Chicago Med’, and ‘Chicago Fire’ are ramping up production with a start date set for September 2020.

According to Reel Chicago, a few production personnel have reportedly prepared for Coronavirus COVID guidelines before the cast and crew arrive. Production was shut down in March with only a few episodes left from wrapping their seasons due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

The IATSE is “cautiously optimistic” and will return to work on September 21st or 22nd.

Alexander Pissios, President of Cinespace Chicago Film Studios, where the One Chicago shows maintain sets, shared his reaction to the news with Reel Chicago, “We are 100% prepared and thrilled that our One Chicago teams are returning to production.”

NBC’s procedural dramas are huge for aspiring actors and crew workers. Since these shows film over 20 episodes a season, it provides an enormous amount of job opportunities especially those looking to get started in the film industry.

For casting calls and job opportunities check out the following:

NBC’s Chicago PD centers on the Intelligence team located at the District 21 of the Chicago Police department. This team fights the city’s major offenses including organized crime, drug trafficking, and high profile murders.

NBC’s Chicago Fire is from renowned Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf (“Law & Order” brand) and co-creator Derek Haas, the writer behind “3:10 to Yuma,”/ “Chicago Fire,” a look into the lives of ordinary heroes assigned to one of America’s noblest professions. The firefighters, rescue squad and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51 endanger their lives week in and week out to protect and shield the residents of Chicago.

NBC’s Chicago Med focuses on the city’s most extremely experienced medical team that saves lives. The Gaffney Chicago Medical Center’s elite team of dedicated doctors, nurses and staff face difficulties each day as they do what it takes to heal their patients, seldom in surprisingly inventive ways. As the city’s last line of defense, doctors Charles, Reese, Halstead, Rhodes, Choi, and Manning; nurses Sexton and Lockwood; and hospital administrator Sharon Goodwin comprise the core of Dick Wolf’s Chicago series.
