TVGuide.com — Following the critical and ratings success of November’s three-way crossover between Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Law & Order: SVU, the three NBC dramas will be joining forces again later this season, TVGuide.com has learned.
“It’s a real good one. Big swings, big stakes,” Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. showrunner Matt Olmstead tells TVGuide.com. “There’s nothing really cemented yet, but we’re definitely doing a big, big Chicago Fire-SVU-Chicago P.D. three-way crossover coming up around Episode 20.”
Olmstead revealed he flew to New York last week to meet with SVU showrunner Warren Leight about the plot details. “There’s a Ted Bundy-esque character who hunted in New York and hunted in Chicago, and it’s the pursuit of a character like that,” he teases.
Unlike the first three-way crossover, Olmstead says this one will have “more integrated storytelling” going back and forth between the two cities.
