The first responders of Dick Wolf's NBC dramas in the Windy City seamlessly cross over throughout the year, even outside of the annual three-show events.
Fire's paramedics bring a patient in and firefighters have dropped by to help with an accident on Med. P.D.'s Intelligence officers routinely stop by the hospital or 51 for a case. There have been romances across the show. (Fire's Mouch and P.D.'s Platt are one of the most stable couples in the One Chicago universe.)
From One Chicago to 'SVU' to the 'FBI' show to the Stabler spinoff, there are plenty of characters to pick from.
With all three shows already renewed for three more seasons, that means there's plenty of time for more of those mini-crossovers that this world does so well. So scroll down for a look at the characters we'd like to see appear on another show next season. (Note: We're not including the obvious, aforementioned ones.)
Chicago Fire's Gallo
The young firefighter followed up on a victim at the hospital in Season 8, and it’s easy to imagine him continuing to do so in the future. Why not use that to have him interact with the Med staff more?
Chicago Fire's Kidd
Kidd started her “Girls on Fire” program, but the girl who had been the most excited — and the one to recruit other high schoolers — went MIA in the finale. Isn’t this the perfect opportunity to have this be a storyline that results in Kidd crossing over to P.D.?
Chicago Fire's Herrmann
This one is simple: there can never be enough scenes at Molly’s or enough Herrmann. And what better way to do that than to have him behind the bar, interacting with characters from Med and/or P.D.?
Chicago Med's Sharon
Sharon Goodwin keeps Med running, but just because she has an administrative position doesn’t mean she needs to miss out on the crossover action. Have Fire have a call or P.D. a case that requires one or more of their characters to visit the hospital — and discuss the work with her.
Chicago Med's Dr. Charles
It pretty much goes without saying that almost all the characters across One Chicago could probably use someone to talk to. But he could also lend his expertise in other ways, most likely with P.D. as he has in the past in court.
Chicago Med's Ethan
The unintentional Med Season 5 finale saw Ethan going out into the field on a ride-along with paramedics. Why not see him go into the field again, this time working Fire‘s 51?
Chicago P.D.'s Hailey
Hailey just spent some time in New York in a crossover with FBI, but it’s unclear if that will change her at all given that her time there was cut short due to production shutting down. And we saw her alongside the doctors of Med during the “Infection” crossover. Why not give us more of the latter (without her life in danger)? We could even see her and Will together a bit; after all, next season could see some key developments in her relationship with his brother Jay.
Chicago P.D.'s Rojas
The newbie of Intelligence was part of the major “Infection” crossover and is still settling in with the unit; she and Hailey are becoming particularly close as the latter takes her under her wing. Why not have Rojas’ circle of friends expand to the other shows, especially after things went south when her ex-boyfriend learned the truth about her job?
Chicago P.D.'s Jay
There can never be too many Halstead brother scenes, and maybe Jay could use some advice about dating a coworker after a relationship with another coworker has gone south.
