Organized Crime’ Renewed by NBC – Deadline

Both Law and order and Law and order: organized crime will be back for new seasons. NBC renewed Law and order for a 22nd season and spinoffs Organized crime for a third season.

The renewals are not unexpected as both series were set to continue.

CNB previously renewed Law and Order: SVU as part of a three-year renewal for what will be its 24th season, extending its record as the longest-running primetime live-action series of all time, and making it three for three for the Dick Wolf series.

Law and order was revived for a 21st season last year, eleven and a half years after it was abruptly canceled by NBC.

The renewals mean that Wolf Entertainment and Universal Television have renewed six series from the venerable creator on the network; Chicago Fire, Chicago PD and Chicago Mediterranean received three-year renewals at the same time as SVU. Wolf and UTV also recently scored two season renewals for FBI, FBI: Most Wanted and FBI: International at CBS.

Both Law and Order: SVU and Organized crime has undergone recent showrunner changes. Earlier this month, Warren Leight quit SVU after serving as executive producer and showrunner of the crime drama for the past three seasons. This was his second stint leading the Wolf Entertainment series. Ilene Chaiken exited as showrunner of Organized crime in February and was replaced by Barry O’Brien for the rest of the season.

“The emblematic Law and order The brand has long been synonymous with NBC and we couldn’t be more thrilled to bring these three dramas back 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 captivated by these unforgettable characters week after week, year after year.”

Since Law and order back in February 2022, NBC ranked No. 1 on Thursday nights in the 18-49 demo with all its Law and order range of franchises. Law and order: organized crime is #1 in its Thursday 10 p.m. timeslot in the 18-49 demo and all key adult demos.

“Dreams come true,” said executive producer Dick Wolf. “The renewal of all Wednesday and Thursday night programming is the ultimate verification of our partnership with NBC and Universal Television. I personally want to thank the talented writers and actors, the producers who keep the trains on time and the teams who tirelessly produce exceptional shows despite a degree of difficulty never before experienced due to the pandemic.

The new slice of Law and order, by Dick Wolf and writer-showrunner Rick Eid, continues the classic bifurcated format and re-examines “The Police Investigating Crime and the District Attorneys Prosecuting Offenders.”

Sam Waterston, Anthony Anderson, Jeffrey Donovan, Camryn Manheim, Hugh Dancy and Odelya Halevi star.

Law and order is produced by Wolf Entertainment and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group. Wolf, Eid, Arthur W. Forney and Peter Jankowski serve as executive producers.

Law and order: organized crime brought the character of SVU’s Christopher Meloni’s Elliot Stabler back to the NYPD’s organized crime unit. The series follows detectives from the Organized Crime Control Bureau as they work to dismantle New York’s most vicious and violent illegal businesses.

Danielle Moné Truitt stars as Stabler’s sergeant and partner Ayanna Bell, along with Ainsley Seiger and Nona Parker Johnson.

The series was created by Wolf, who produces with showrunner Barry O’Brien, Terry Miller, Fred Berner, Arthur W. Forney and Peter Jankowski.
