"We all love this thrilling new drama with its sexy breakout cast. We are excited to see it gaining traction on our schedule," NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said in a statement. "Executive producer Dick Wolf and all the producers have done an amazing job developing a high-stakes series with lots of great heroic characters whose exploits are depicted in Dick's typically epic storytelling style."

Chicago Fire averages around six million viewers per week and a solid 2.4 rating in adults 18-49.

It joins Revolution, Go On and The New Normal as first-year NBC shows that have received full-season orders.
