"Chicago Fire" sparked NBC's prime-time lineup last season with its mix of adrenaline-driven action sequences and personal drama revolving around the truck-and-rescue squad of a fictional Chicago firehouse. Creator and executive producer Dick Wolf now wants to add heat to the fire with a spinoff, "Chicago P.D.," premiering Wednesday. Wolf and his fellow producers hope "Chicago Fire," still a solid performer in its second season, will fuel interest in "Chicago P.D.," which will feature an ensemble combining familiar faces from "Chicago Fire" with new characters.

Cragen tweeted his departure from the series on Monday, writing , "Friday was the last day 4 Cragen/Florek. It was a sweet send off! But he'll live on in syndication land 4 evah!"

And in a fitting send-off the fictional cops of New York's 16th precinct threw him a roast. Belzer's time playing the perpetually sunglasses-wearing detective is unique in broadcast television, in that he's played the same character on 10 TV shows across five channels and 20 years.
