‘Chicago Code’ Canceled

Tuesday this week, FOX Network cancelled the Windy City-bound television series “The Chicago Code” after only one season.  A series made to capture the history and image of all areas of the city, the show was filmed entirely in Chicago.  It starred Jennifer Beals, Jason Clarke, and Delroy Lindo along with several others.

The show’s creator, Shawn Ryan, tweeted: “Fox suits loved the show, but have a business to run.  Wow.  Thanks for all the kind words everyone. We tried to make the best show we could and we thank those of you who watched it.”

Although the Chi-town filmed series were strong, FOX is making room for pilots that are in development such as “Alcatraz,” which will be produced by JJ Abrams, as “The New Girl,” starring Zooey Deschanel, and a “Bones” spinoff called “The Finder.”

In addition to “The Chicago Code,” FOX also cancelled shows such as “Human Target,” “Traffic Light,” “Lie To Me,” and “Breaking In.”

Ryan has also tweeted that the final two episodes of “The Chicago Code” will air the following Mondays.  According to him, the finale should be “satisfying.”
