Currently, "Chicago Justice" is still in bubble territory. In other words, it's still waiting to find out if it's getting that happy renewal announcement.

Currently, we don't have any details about the number of episodes that season 5 will bring to the table or a premiere date. Hopefully, that important information will pop up sometime in June or early July. We'll certainly be on the lookout for it, so just keep checking back. We also might get some spoiler teasers for "#Chicago Fire's" new season 6 as soon as tomorrow if the media outlets are able to hound the producers and showrunners for some early details. Again, just keep your eyes peeled for something to pop up this week.

Second highest rated

Deadline also put out a renewal article that gives out some information, telling us that "Chicago Fire" is actually NBC's second-highest-rated series behind their new hit drama: "This Is Us." We've also got another report from them, revealing that "Chicago Fire's" current co-creator/executive producer/co-showrunner, Michael Brandt, has decided to leave the show, along with executive producer/director, Joe Chappelle.

Executive producer, Derek Haas, will be working solo from here on out. So, that might mean we could see a new change or look in the storylines. We'll see.

Slightly weaker ratings

Season 5 definitely started off a lot stronger than what it is now numbers-wise with a 1.8 demographic rating for ages 18-49 and a whopping 11.41 million viewers. Those numbers have gradually dipped down to about a 1.2 demo rating as of the 21st episode, which aired last Monday, May 9th, 2017. The show brought in 9.78 million viewers in the 18th episode. We're still waiting for the numbers for the last three.

Even with that drop, those are still strong numbers, which is why NBC didn't have much of a problem, giving it the renewal greenlight. Those viewer numbers are worldwide numbers. The United States-only numbers, show 7.52 million viewers to kick off the season, and a dip down to 5.92 million viewers as of episode 21. That's a definite decline. Hopefully, those numbers can climb back up in the new season 6. Stay tuned.
