Joined the coterie of Dick Wolf’s universe of crime and drama for the first time in April 2021, Law and Order: Organized Crime proves to be yet another thrilling series, along with its flagship show and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. Initially, Organized Crime was meant to be a shortened series, streaming a serial story instead of the expected episode-of-the-week drama. However, this was altered in the subsequent seasons.
Renewed for the fourth season in July 2023, Organized Crime will now welcome David Graziano as the new showrunner of the series. Wolf is the executive producer of the show, along with Ilene Chaiken, Arthur W. Forney, Peter Jankowski, Fred Berner, Terry Miller, and Christopher Meloni.
Although the crime procedural drama was renewed in July 2023, fans were highly concerned about its premiere owing to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes that had just begun to take flight, and people had no option but to listen to their demands very seriously. Under those circumstances, all the production schedules were postponed indefinitely.
Cut to the end of September, when the writers’ union officially announces the end of their strike. There is indeed a light at the end of the tunnel. Does that mean Law & Order: Organized Crime season 4 is new tonight?
Well, no. In fact, we won’t be getting a new episode anytime soon.
Per Variety, Law & Order: Organized Crime season 4 was scheduled to be back in the midseason instead of the fall, owing to the change in the showrunners from Ilene Chaiken to Barry O’Brien. The fourth season was expected to air new episodes on Thursday nights. However, the strikes disrupted this schedule, which resulted in NBC airing reruns and competition shows.
But now that the writers’ union has officially announced the end of the strike, fans are assuming that the fourth season will finally premiere soon. Be that as it may, one should also not forget that the actors’ strike has not ended yet.
For the premiere to happen soon, the actors’ strike needs to end as soon as possible.
Consequently, it is difficult to presume when the new season will premiere on NBC. If the actors’ strike ends by the end of 2023, we expect Law & Order: Organized Crime season 4 to follow the midseason schedule of 2024.
