It's an NBC crossover-palooza!

Get excited, crime lovers, because some of your fan favorites characters from Law & Order: SVU will be teaming up with the new members of Chicago P.D.

Freshman drama Chicago P.D. has, naturally, been blurring lines with its flagship series, Chicago Fire, but soon the spinoff will be working alongside some of the most prestigious detectives on TV.

In an attempt to catch a criminal on the run, Sophia Bush's Erin Lindsey will travel to New York City to work with the always-dynamic Detective Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay), while Detectives Fin Tutulo (Ice-T) and Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) will be sharing their knowledge with the team in the windy city.

"We have a case that we need a little bit of help with that began in New York City," Chicago Sophia Bush explained. "And we're now finding the M.O. in Chicago. SVU was investigating it when he was up there and now it's on our hands." 

The One Tree Hill actress continued, "We're trying to make sure that instead of running into any redundancies that we start with all the information that we can and that we get perspective from the officers who were working the case before it went cold in their state. In doing so, we really want to catch this guy."

Bush, who gushes that she is "the biggest SVU fan," is thrilled to be flying to New York City this week to work alongside Hargitay. "To have Ice and Kelly come down to work with us, and to be going to work with Mariska, I mean I feel like it's my birthday."

The Chicago P.D. and Law & Order: SVU crossover episode is set to air Wednesday, Feb. 26 at 10 p.m.

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
