After 11 seasons, Chicago P.D. has cemented itself as one of television's beloved police procedurals. Together with Chicago Fire and Chicago Med, the trio of Dick Wolf shows make up a powerful block on NBC's TV lineup. Not surprisingly, NBC renewed all three shows and they will be back with full seasons in the fall. 

Here's what we know about Chicago P.D. season 12.

Chicago P.D. season 12 release date

Chicago P.D. season 12 will air Wednesdays at 10 pm ET/PT on NBC in the fall, with Chicago Med season 10 kicking off the night at 8 pm ET/PT and Chicago Fire season 13 following at 9 pm ET/PT.

You can catch up on previous seasons of Chicago P.D. and the other One Chicago shows on Peacock

Chicago P.D. season 12 will air on NBC, with new episodes streaming the following day on Peacock. All of the previous seasons are also available on Peacock. If you've cut the cord, you can also watch NBC live through streaming services like Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV, YouTube TV and Fubo

If you want to watch any NBC show the day after it airs, you'll have to subscribe to Peacock. Peacock can be accessed through a smartphone or computer, or you can watch it on TV. Some cable providers offer Peacock for free as part of their cable bundle. You can also watch Peacock through platforms such as Fire TV, Apple TV Plus and Roku.
