Word is out this evening that Chicago Justice has been cancelled after its first season. The mid-season legal drama premiered in March as the fourth and most-recent entry in the hit Chicago franchise, but soft ratings on Sunday nights did not make a compelling case for a pickup.

The fourth entry in the franchise, Chicago Justice could have been a case of one too many shows under the same umbrella. Its viewership, while not terrible, was the lowest among its franchise-mates. The remaining three entries - Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, and Chicago Med - were all recently renewed for 2017-2018 and will be returning for Season 6, Season 5, and Season 3 respectively.
