‘Law & Order’ & ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Renewed At NBC, ‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ In Limbo

Law & Order and Law & Order: SVU will be back for the 2024-25 season after NBC renewed the pair of shows but spinoff Law & Order: Organized Crime is in a slightly more precarious position.

The network has renewed Law & Order for Season 24, while Law & Order: SVU will be back for Season 26.

The future of Law & Order: Organized Crime, which is in its fourth season, is still in discussion at the network. It has been the lowest rated of Dick Wolf’s NBC shows and has had a number of showrunners over its course. Matt Olmstead started out as showrunner, replaced by Ilene Chaiken, who was replaced by Barry O’Brien. Bryan Goluboff was named showrunner for Season 3 but left after three months, replaced by Sean Jablonski, who also left shortly after due to “creative differences” and was replaced by David Graziano. John Shiban is showrunner for Season 4.

The moves come as NBC has also renewed its One Chicago trio of Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.

Law & Order itself has gone through some significant casting changes. Jeffrey Donovan, who played Detective Frank Cosgrove, left before production and Veep’s Reid Scott joined the cast as Detective Vincent Riley.
