On December 8, 2022, we saw Law & Order make a thrilling return after a two-week break due to the Thanksgiving holiday. The episode that aired, titled “The System,” told the riveting story of Detective Shaw and Detective Price questioning their roles in the justice system after a murder suspect escapes from custody.

But don’t fret, as this absence is only temporary. When will the show return in all of its glory, you ask? Keep reading to learn more about when and how to watch the newest episodes of Law & Order Season 22.
