Chicago PD repeats will continue to air on MyNetworkTV stations as part of a fall lineup that is almost all Dick Wolf series.

Fans of Chicago PD will be able to keep watching reruns on one of their local channels this fall, as MyNetworkTV has announced that the series is staying on their schedule for the 2019-2020 TV season.

MyNetworkTV is a syndicated network of TV stations owned by Fox; if you don’t know where they are in your area, you can find your channel here.

They originally picked up episodes of Chicago PD last summer as there were multiple syndication deals made for the show. Now it seems repeats have done well enough there that they’re keeping them on, along with a whole lot of Dick Wolf programming.

Two Chicago PD episodes will air back-to-back each Tuesday night at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m., starting on Sept. 23.

But Monday nights will feature repeats of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Thursdays will be episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

So out of the company’s five-day schedule, three of those days are devoted to shows under the Dick Wolf umbrella.

The MyNetworkTV announcement is good news for One Chicago fans, because PD is the only one of the three shows that’s gotten any traction in syndication.

It also has a separate deal to air on ION Television, and can also be seen on NBC’s sister channels USA and Oxygen, too.

That, in turn, makes the show more profitable because it’s bringing in extra money from all of these repeats being sold to other networks—even if two of them are in the NBCUniversal family.

A similar situation can be seen with SVU, which may be struggling compared to One Chicago in the live ratings on NBC, but is heavily syndicated across multiple networks. It has a strong presence on other channels, which makes it more valuable financially.

And if PD succeeds in that way, it’s better for the entire One Chicago franchise. If it proves to be a good purchase for other networks, they’ll be more inclined to make syndication deals for Chicago Fire (well past the 100-episode mark for syndication) and Chicago Med (which is closing in on that benchmark).

The more money they make, the more reason to keep the franchise going in first-run, too.

The most interesting thing about this week’s announcement, though, is the start date. Repeats of Chicago PD will start up again on MyNetworkTV on Sept. 23—which is two days before season 7 begins on NBC.
