‘Chicago PD’ Season 8 Plot
The seventh installment has ended on a major twist. But the show wasn’t prepared for a finale like this. Rick Eid, the showrunner revealed that they have to make changes and wrap up the story with fewer episodes than planned.
This is because of the coronavirus pandemic across the globe. The production houses are not operational in most of the regions. But somehow they completed 20 episodes by working hard.
Rick Eid explained everything by saying, “We had an exciting season finale that will probably get pushed to episode 4 or 5 of next season.”
“I can’t really talk specifically about the episode, other than to say someone we know is murdered,” he added.
But still, the show has done a fantastic job without ruining the suspense that the viewers are expecting. Officially, there is nothing out in the name of season 8 plot we will update this section very soon.
But if you have seen S07E20 some parts of the story are not covered in the finale. So, the initial episodes of the upcoming installment may be focused more on connecting the untied ends.
