"Anything is possible in this universe," says show producer Rick Eid.

After 11 years, Law & Order is back. Season 21 of the iconic show premieres February 24 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC—and even though it's just started, we're already looking toward the future.

How to Watch

Watch Law & Order on NBC and Peacock

Fans of the Dick Wolf-created Law & Order universe know the original series was just the beginning. Since the birth of the franchise in 1990, Wolf has produced seven other L&O shows, including current favorites Special Victims Unit and Organized Crime. There's also his Chicago franchise, which airs Wednesday nights on NBC. With so many beloved ensemble casts across each series, viewers have been treated to a handful of episodic crossover events. Most recently, in December 2021, we saw SVU and Organized Crime join forces. Naturally, then, we have to ask: Will the new Law & Order join in on the fun?

"I think crossovers have been very successful in the Dick Wolf universe," Law & Order producer and writer Rick Eid said at a Television Critics Association event in February. "They are a fan favorite. So there's a chance there will be a three‑part or two‑part Law & Order crossover somewhere along the way. Anything is possible in this universe."

Meanwhile, Mariska Hargitay (a.k.a Olivia Benson on SVU) told Entertainment Tonight"Dick has already told me that we’re going to, so it’s just a matter of time. I’m excited about the night that it’s a three-show crossover, which sounds impossible, but we can do it,"

Picture it: Olivia Benson, Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni), and Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) all in the same episode! The mind boggles! 

Law & Order airs Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
