Deadline reports that NBC has ordered another episode of its fire-fighter drama starring Jesse Spencer and Taylor Kinney. The series, produced by Law & Order creator Dick Wolf, will now run to 23 episodes.
In November NBC ordered a full series of Chicago Fire after ratings picked up following a slow start; the series didn’t premier until October. When ratings began to hit 8 million viewers the broadcaster decided to pick up a full first series.
While Chicago Fire has gained an episode other NBC shows have seen their episode order reduced; both Revolution and Deception have lost an episode each.
