Chicago PD season 7 DVD release date announced.
It took a while, but Chicago PD season 7 now has a DVD release date from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, and the box set of the latest season is available for pre-order.
Universal has scheduled the release for Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020. For those of you keeping score, that’s two weeks after the street date for Chicago Fire and Chicago Med, both of which are due to arrive on August 25.
This is standard practice for UPHE, which has split up the One Chicago DVD releases each of the last three years—but still well ahead of the show’s anticipated return this fall.

The six-disc set will retail for $39.98 and can be pre-ordered now on Amazon.
As of this writing, Amazon is selling the set at list price, but if you pre-order and the price goes down before Sept. 8, the company will give you the lower price through their Pre-Order Price Guarantee.
If you want to save some money now or prefer the digital version, Amazon Video has season 7 available for $33.99. It’s about six dollars cheaper and includes all 20 episodes in high definition.

This season is the first season without Antonio Dawson, who is written out off-screen after Jon Seda was let go from the cast between seasons. Antonio’s absence is addressed in the season premiere, but Seda does not appear in the episode.
Taking his place in the ensemble is Lisseth Chavez (The Fosters), who joins the show in the second episode as Officer Vanessa Rojas. Chavez is featured heavily in multiple installments, while Tracy Spiridakos has a smaller role near the end of the season because her character Hailey Upton is in New York. (The FBI episode featuring Spiridakos is NOT included in this set.)
The Chicago PD season 7 DVD set is relatively bare, as has been the case in past seasons. What fans will get is the Fire and Med episodes that were part of the season’s two crossover events. No other special features are included at all.
The set has an English audio track, but no other language dubs. It does have subtitles, but only in English and French. This is the same set-up as the other Chicago DVD sets coming out this season. While the lack of other language support and any special features may disappoint some fans, that is the template Universal has been using for the whole franchise.
The good news is that the early September street date means that fans can still catch up before new episodes are supposed to start—a must given that this season ends in a big way.
