How to Watch

Watch Law & Order: Organized Crime Thursdays at 10/9c on NBC and next day on Peacock.

Law & Order: Organized Crime has been delivering non-stop thrills, but Season 3 is slowing down the action this April just for a bit. 

Detective Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) and the Organized Crime unit have had their hands full while going after some of New York City's most notorious criminal organizations. Sgt. Ayanna Bell (Danielle Moné Truitt) and her twisted past have been explored more intensely this season, with many fans finally peeling the curtain back on her dark beginnings in the force. OC has been emotional yet thrilling, so many fans can't wait to jump back into the drama.

But weekly watchers will need to press the brakes if they're expecting new episodes this week. Find details about when and how to watch new episodes of Law & Order: OC, below.

Law & Order: OC will not air new episodes during the weeks of April 13 and April 20, 2023. During the hiatus, relive some of the most intense episodes by streaming Law & Order: OC on Peacock.

The bittersweet news of OC going on an April hiatus may be softened by recent announcements about Season 4. Yes, next fall we're getting a new season of Law & Order: Organized Crime. Series creator Dick Wolf is just as pleased as viewers are about the renewal. 

“I’m pleased to continue my four-decade relationship with Universal Television and NBC,” Wolf's statement reads. “All six shows [including the three One Chicago shows] being picked up again is the ultimate accolade to our incredible casts, producers, and writers. I'd also like to thank our loyal fans who have kept our NBC shows on the air for what will be a cumulative 84 seasons.”
