All 3 Law & Order Shows Are Coming Back, So Your Thursday Nights Are Booked
"Dreams do come true," says franchise creator Dick Wolf.
It looks like Law & Order fans have some exciting news to celebrate. All three of the franchise’s hit shows will be renewed for the 2022-2023 season, including the original Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU, and Law & Order: Organized Crime. Lisa Katz, the president of scripted programming at NBC, was thrilled to announce the good news on May 10th.
“The iconic Law & Order brand has long been synonymous with NBC, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring back all three of these dramas for the 2022-23 season,” said Katz. “It’s a testament to the brilliance of Dick Wolf’s storytelling that audiences remain compelled by these unforgettable characters week after week, year after year.”
The renewal of Law & Order: SVU for its 24th season means that the spin-off still holds the record for the longest-running primetime show, ever. Although executive producer Dick Wolf has gone on to create many other successful dramas (Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago P.D.), Law & Order remains one of his most prolific television contributions. Wolf described the renewal as a “dream come true."
“The renewals of the entire Wednesday and Thursday night lineups is the ultimate verification of our partnership with NBC and Universal Television,” added Wolf. “I personally want to thank the talented writers and casts, the producers who keep the trains running on time, and the crews who tirelessly turn out outstanding shows despite a degree of difficulty never before experienced due to the pandemic.”
