Fans were hoping to see more of Atty. Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) in "Chicago Justice." But unfortunately, NBC has decided to cancel the legal drama after it completed its freshman run on May 14. The announcement came after the network renewed "Taken" and "Shades of Blue" despite their poor performance in terms of demo ratings.

'Chicago' renewals

Earlier this month, NBC revealed the list of renewed "Chicago" series which covered "Chicago Fire," "Chicago P.D." and "Chicago Med." The Winchester-starrer, on the other hand, remained on the bubble until the network finally announced the cancellation of the Dick Wolf creation.

"Chicago Justice," which ran for 13 episodes, followed the journey of a team of prosecutors and prosecutors in charge of working around the clock to provide justice to those who fell victims of inequity.

Winchester shared the small screen with Jon Seda as Chief Investigator Antonio Dawson, Joelle Carter as Investigator Laura Nagel, Monica Barbaro as Assistant State's Attorney Anna Valdez, and Carl Weathers as State's Attorney Mark Jefferies.

The freshman series was the fourth part of Wolf's "Chicago" franchise along with "Fire," "Med" and "P.D." After the cancellation, NBC is yet to give the word whether Seda will reprise his role in "Chicago P.D."

Un-cancellation
