Tv Season Info

This American crime drama television series follows the efforts of the Chicago Police Department to fight both crime on the streets, and corruption from within. The anti-corruption unit is led by veteran Chicago Police Detective Jarek Wysocki ( Jason Clarke ) ; a task assigned to him by Teresa Colvin (Jennifer Beals), his one-time partner turned Chicago's first female Police Superintendant. Accompanied by his latest partner, Caleb Evers (Matt Lauria), the two crime fighters often encounter fellow police officers working undercover to expose the machinations of the Irish Mob, who they believe may be connected to a powerful Chicago politician.

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (16)

The Chicago Code may be better than the other police commissioner show, and at least as worthy to add to your weekly TV appointment lineup.

The Chicago Code may be the best new show of the TV season.

'The Chicago Code'' is a really good cop drama right off the bat, with greasier perps, more swerving car chases, and better bulletproof-vest action than you'll find on "Southland,'' or "Blue Bloods,'' or "Detroit 1-8-7.''

What Code is is a show that's not afraid to be just a little bigger than life.
