On this article, we’ve rounded-up the facts regarding the possible fate of the fireman drama on whether or not it can get a season 2 renewal. Keep reading for our early prediction –
Chicago Fire premiered with weak ratings (6.61 mil/1.9) on its original Wednesday 10pm berth on NBC. However, in week three, the series surged a huge 20% change and a 1.8 rating on the same adult demo. According to Deadline, Law and Order: SVU which aired its 300th episode that same week, served as a great lead-in for the struggling drama.
On the heels of the aforementioned good news, the network has ordered five more additional episodes for the Dick Wolf-produced series. Week five showed tremendous promise as Chicago Fire brought in another huge 38% change in rating — plus gaining 7.03 million set of eyeballs, a 25% increase from its previous outing. On that note, NBC has officially ordered the series a 24-episode freshman run after being upped from the previous 23. and 22.
So far, the following episodes of Chicago Fire have served the network a streak of impressive performances. Albeit going against the well-watched CSI from CBS, the NBC rookie has evidently fared strong.
While NBC is yet to announce the official renewal of its primetime listings for the 2013-2014 fall lineup, we predict that Chicago Fire is a ‘slum dunk’ for season 2.
