In the fall, Law & Order will return for a 22nd season while the franchise’s newest addition, Law & Order: Organized Crime for a third season. SVU was previously renewed for a 24th season and is the longest-running, live-action primetime series.
“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 Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Programming, NBCU Entertainment and Streaming. “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.”
Dick Wolf said, “Dreams do come true. The renewals of the entire Wednesday and Thursday night lineups is the ultimate verification of our partnership with NBC and Universal Television. 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.”
NBC has ranked #1 on Thursday nights in the 18-49 demo with its all Law & Order franchise lineup since the show’s return.
