the series renewal.

In a move that will come as a delight for the millions of fans of the “Law & Order,” franchise around the globe, NBC has announced the renewal of three of its shows for the 2023-2024 television season. Much more than the loyal viewers believed, the iconic procedural franchise has been a staple of the network’s programming for over three decades and has been able to captivate audiences with its gritty portrayal of some of the toughest cases faced by law enforcement agencies.

“Law & Order: SVU,” “Law & Order: Organized Crime,” and “Law & Order,” have become fan favorites with their fast-paced action, in-depth characterizations, and sharp writing. The renewal news is a clear testament to the enduring popularity of the franchise, and viewers can look forward to more thrilling content in the coming years. With the franchise’s long-standing history of exploring topical issues, the upcoming season promises to deliver even more thought-provoking material for audiences to engage with.

On the other hand, Deadline recently reported that the three Chicago shows and SVU make up the four top-rated shows on NBC. Law & Order and Organized Crime are right behind “the Big 4,” in the rating, with Law & Order pulling in more live viewers and Organized Crime getting a bigger delayed-viewing lift. With such a great overall reception, it is clear why the network has moved forward with additional renewals which will bring more exciting stories in the 2023-2024 television season. 

This renewal marks a milestone for the trio as the recent reports have kind of confirmed that both “Law & Order” and “SVU” will have 22 episodes, and “Organized Crime” will have 13 episodes!
