Chase is back!

But not for long. The freshman police procedural, which was taken off the NBC primetime schedule in early February due to low ratings, will air the rest of its episodes beginning Saturday, April 23 at 8 p.m. for five weeks.

The network ordered a full 22-episode season, but cut the number to 18 in December. The most recent episode drew 4.2 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demo.

Led by Kelli Giddish and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Chase follows a group of U.S. Marshals based in Texas.
