Eight of Wolf Entertainment/Universal Television writers rooms are opening this week following the end of the writers strike. Additionally, two new showrunners have been named: “Chicago Fire” Season 12 will be run by Andrea Newman, formerly co-showrunner with Derek Haas; and “FBI: International” Season 3 will be run by executive producer Matt Olmstead.

Haas, who co-created “Chicago Fire,” was the previous showrunner of “FBI: International” as well. He exited Wolf Entertainment last November after 10 years.

While Season 3 of “Law & Order: Organized Crime” was first run by Sean Jablonski then later “SVU” showrunner David Graziano, the team is searching for a new Season 4 showrunner. This will be the show’s sixth showrunner, as Barry O’Brien, Bryan Goluboff and Ilene Chaiken previously held the title. The spinoff has not yet set a date to return to the writers room.

Rick Eid will return as showrunner for “Law & Order,” while Graziano will return to “Law & Order: SVU;”
“Chicago PD” will be run by Gwen Sigan and “Chicago Med” will be run by Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider; “FBI” showrunner is Rick Eid while David Hudgens heads up “FBI: Most Wanted.”

The three “Law & Order” series and three “One Chicago” series are produced by Wolf Entertainment and Universal Television; the three “FBI” shows are produced by Wolf Entertainment, Universal Television and CBS studios.
