What does Haas’ exit mean for the Chicago franchise?

Given Haas’ close involvement in the Chicago Shows, whether as showrunner or executive producer, his departure is having a big impact. Several fans have debated how Chicago fire handles his pairs, to cite one example, and how this can prove detrimental to the series as a whole. Going forward, Haas’ departure could mean a shift in these types of storylines. On the other hand, those who thoroughly enjoyed Haas’ stories will get a sense of how he would wrap up the series if given the chance. A Chicago will continue without Haas, as well as FBI: Internationalbut it will be his last run with some of the characters he helped create.

It might seem like procedural documentaries are a unique genre in that they thrive regardless of who’s involved on camera and behind the scenes, but that’s not necessarily true. While the general story setups and visuals may persist from one showrunner to the next, a new leader can push the narrative in different directions, focusing on new themes and perhaps giving a more prominent presence to characters who were previously in supporting roles. After Haas spent a decade doing it Chicago fire and its offshoots, it will be interesting to see what the franchise may become in his absence.
