One Chicago fans can rewatch the most recent episodes as NBC will reair the Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD midseason finales tonight.

One Chicago viewers who want to get ready for next week’s midseason premieres can tune in to NBC this evening, as the network will air the most recent installments of all three shows.

The Chicago Med fall finale “Death Do Us Part,” which features Dr. Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) in a difficult situation on his wedding day, starts off the Wednesday night block at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

That’s followed by the Chicago Fire finale “Always A Catch” at 9 p.m. ET/PT, as a multi-car pile-up injures the girlfriend of one Firehouse 51 member, while another relationship finds itself teetering on the brink of disaster.

Last but not least, at 10 p.m. ET/PT is the Chicago PD midseason ender “Descent” where Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) faces the reality that his drug addiction is not only threatening his career but it may also get one of his family members killed.

While it might be a bummer to some fans that there aren’t new episodes this week, this is actually a very smart move for NBC to make starting off the new year.

Replaying the midseason enders gives the viewers a chance to remind themselves what happened when they last watched—which is particularly important in One Chicago, since all three series had cliffhanger endings.

And from a ratings standpoint, NBC still delivers even when there are repeats. The day after Christmas, the network rolled out a rerun broadcast of this season’s crossover, and it still posted strong numbers.

An average of 4.296 million people watched those reruns live on Dec. 26, ranging from the 4.04 who saw Chicago Med to the 4.48 who tuned in for the episode of Chicago PD.

In contrast, the last new episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (on Nov. 30) reached 3.80 million people live. So One Chicago reruns perform as well as an original episode of the other Dick Wolf series for the network.

Especially since this is a holiday week, with Wednesday falling the day after New Year’s, it’s a safe play for NBC to air the reruns, give viewers a chance to catch-up, and then bring out the new ones next week when everyone is ready to dive back into the action.

Make sure you’re tuned in this evening to get your refresher, and then don’t miss the return of the whole One Chicago franchise in just seven days!
