NBC is going back to the orders of its “Law & Order” franchise with the announcement of a 21st season. The series, which aired from 1990 to 2010 and introduced a flood of spin-offs, will once again examine “the police who investigate crime and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders.” A premiere date and cast will be announced at a later date.
The police side of the “Law & Order” cast featured the late Jerry Orbach as Det. Lennie Briscoe, Jesse L Martin as Det. Ed Green, “Chicago Med’s” S. Epatha Merkerson as Lt.. Anita Van Buren, Chris Noth as Det. Mike Logan, and Benjamin Bratt as Det. Rey Curtis, to name a few. On the legal side were Sam Waterston as Jack McCoy, Jill Hennessy as Claire Kincaid, Angie Harmon as Abbie Carmichael, Elisabeth Rohm as Serena Southeryln and more.
“Law & Order” will be executive produced by Dick Wolf, Rick Eid (writer/showrunner), Arthur Forney and Peter Jankowski. The series will be produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Wolf Entertainment.
