'Law & Order: SVU' Will Now Tie 'Gunsmoke' and 'Law & Order' As the Longest Running Scripted Dramas in the History of Television

Producer Dick Wolf is four for four in the renewal scorecard on NBC, with the network issuing renewals for next season to “Law & Order: SVU” and the trio of Chicago-set hours: “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago PD” and “Chicago Med.” This will take “Law & Order: SVU” into season 20, which will tie “Gunsmoke” and parent series “Law & Order” as the longest running scripted dramas in the history of television. “Chicago Fire” heads into season seven, “Chicago PD” season six and “Chicago Med” season four.
