NBC’s CHICAGO FIRE and CBS’ FBI: INTERNATIONAL officially have new showrunners.

Andrea Newman, who co-showran FIRE, will officially serve as FIRE’s showrunner for the upcoming season 12. Matt Olmstead, who co-created CHICAGO P.D. and has been an EP on INTERNATIONAL, will showrun FBI:I season 3.

Derek Haas, who previously ran both shows, exited at the end of the 2022-23 season. “I hope that it’s these characters and this dynamic that people respond to [that keeps fans hooked],” he told Give Me My Remote back in 2022 of his hope for the shows beyond his tenure. “In my history of working on CHICAGO FIRE and those early years of CHICAGO P.D., the tried and true compass that I’ve certainly run on, and foster is, the idea that you’re watching a family. Maybe not blood family, but a family that works together and cares about each other.”

“And with INTERNATIONAL, the Fly Team, we have a foundation where here’s a group of Americans who, for disparate reasons, ended up overseas in Europe,” Haas continues. “And then it’s almost like [they’re thinking], ‘We’re the outsider, so we have to circle up and protect each other.’ And I love that feeling and that chemistry. It’s definitely the chemistry that the actors have. So all I can say is the writing staff that luckily assembled here, that I helped to put together, is like a murderers’ row of just great writers. And they’re going to continue on with these characters. So I don’t think you’re going to miss a beat with me leaving, and I can’t wait to see where they continue on.”
