Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. crossover will bring back old romance memories between two main characters of the NBC shows.
The Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. crossover storyline will revolve around Lieutenant Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney). He will help a woman named Anna (Charlotte Sullivan), who needs a bone-marrow transplant. However, when things do not go as planned, Severide finds himself slipping back into old habits and somehow get involved in a vehicular homicide. His is ex-girlfriend Chicago P.D. Detective Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) will come in to arrest him.
Chicago P.D. executive producer Matt Olmstead reveals that the idea for the crossover started in one episode of P.D. about a car-theft group.
How Did They Choose Severide for the Crossover?
Olmstead tells TVLine the firefighter lieutenant is a great candidate for the crossover since he has not been seen too often in P.D.
How Would Lindsay Treat Severide Now That He Is a Suspect?
“It really helped us out, because not only is Voight kind of keeping an eye on her [Lindsay], and aware of the fact they used to date, but he’s also smartly bringing her into it and letting her use that because it’s keeping Severide talking,” says Olmstead.
Chicago Fire executive Producer Derek Haas tells CarterMatt that viewers would not want to miss the P.D. episode since Severide’s past relationship with Lindsay will certainly add to the excitement.
Meanwhile, Lindsay’s current boyfriend, Detective Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), is a little quick to think that Severide is guilty because of his past with his girlfriend.
Olmstead teases the situation will distract everyone but not Sergeant Hank Voight (Jason Beghe). Voight will capitalize on all of these emotions and relationships to get to the bottom of what happened.
Is Severide guilty of vehicular homicide? Let’s all find out when the two NBC procedural dramas return on Tuesday.
The Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. crossover will air back-to-back starting at 9:00 p.m. EST on CBS.
Chicago Fire is already in its fifth season, while Chicago P.D. is in its fourth.
