A little early I know, but NBC have announced 3 pick ups for next season early, so might as well start the thread here and now.

As rumoured Chicago Medical, a spin-off of Fire/P.D. has been given the go ahead, along with Blindspot and Heartbreaker. Blindspot is a drama about a woman with amnesia whose body is covered in tattoos, each of which is a clue to an unsolved crime. Heartbreaker is a medical drama about a transplant surgeon.

Needless to say all sound 100% missable.

Medical dramas seem to be in these days. Of course Chicago M.D. will probably last a while considering the plot that Chicago Fire seems to be going at.

It sounds like the idea of a shitty movie, not a TV show. Like how could that last for more than one (short and shit) season.

Meh. What's next? Chicago City Hall? Chicago Post Office? Maybe they'll do a young adult spin-off: Chicago Teens. Or how about Chicago Housewives?

I'd wager some kind of naval/sea based spin-off would be the only other viable option, but then NCIS has that niche sewn up.

Why stick with Chicago, they could just spin it off to a different city and do all three again. How about Milwaukee: Fire

QUOTE
the multi-cam project follows two diverse couples who are both neighbors and best friends. As they go through life side-by-side, they can’t help but analyze and obsess about everything — from topics like sex and race, to the fact that the trusted new babysitter might just be a porn star.

The CW have officially cancelled Hart Of Dixie and The Messengers and picked up yet another DC show, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Cordon:

DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known? The cast includes Victor Garber (The Flash); Brandon Routh (Arrow); Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who); Caity Lotz (Arrow); Dominic Purcell (The Flash) and Wentworth Miller (The Flash). Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter are EPs.

CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND Rebecca Bloom is a successful, driven, and possibly crazy young woman who impulsively gives up everything – her partnership at a prestigious law firm and her upscale apartment in Manhattan – in a desperate attempt to find love and happiness in that exotic hotbed of romance and adventure: West Covina, Calif. (it’s only two hours from the beach! Four in traffic). The cast includes Rachel Bloom (Robot Chicken), who also serves as executive producer along with Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada); and Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man).

CORDON When a mysterious and deadly epidemic breaks out in Atlanta, a vast urban quarantine is quickly enforced, forcing those stuck on the inside to fight for their lives while local and federal officials desperately search for a cure. Trying to keep the peace on the streets is police officer Lex Carnahan, who has quickly risen through the ranks of the Atlanta PD. But Lex’s job becomes even harder when he learns that his longtime girlfriend, Jana, and his best friend and fellow officer Jake, are trapped within the cordoned area. Also quarantined in viral ground zero is 17 year-old Teresa, who is eight months pregnant and now separated from her boyfriend on the other side; Katie Frank, an Elementary school teacher now placed on lockdown with her entire class, including her young son; and CDC researcher Dr. Victor Cannerts, the doctor who initially made the controversial call to quarantine the area and is now racing to find a cure for the virus. On the outside, Dr. Sabine Lommers is leading the government efforts to contain the outbreak, and has asked for Lex’s help in enforcing the cordon – which grows increasingly difficult as the public trust deteriorates. And the public has reason to be wary, as journalist Leo begins unraveling a conspiracy, finding that something doesn’t add up in the official story being told. Torn apart from their loved ones, the survivors trapped within the cordon are fighting against not only fatal infection, but also isolation, fear, and the disintegration of society around them. But as they begin to gain each other’s trust, hope remains, and on either side of the cordon unlikely heroes will rise. Cordon stars David Gyasi (Interstellar); Christina Moses (Starship: Apocalypse), Chris Wood (The Vampire Diaries), Kristen Gutoskie (Beaver Falls”); Claudia Black (“The Originals,” “Farscape”); George Young (“Casualty”); Hanna Mangan Lawrence (“Spartacus: War of the Damned”);and Trevor St. John (“One Life To Live”). Based on the original Belgian series created by Carl Joos for Eyeworks, CORDON is produced by My So-Called Company in association with Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Julie Plec (“The Vampire Diaries,” “The Originals”) and David Nutter (The Flash,” “Arrow

Sounds exactly like 'Memento' to me! ohmy.gif (Except I presume these will be various crimes as opposed to finding out her own).
