Is the Law & Order: Organized Crime release date confirmed? When is it out? Fans continue to anticipate the spin-off series.
Fans of Law & Order are certainly no strangers to a spin-off.
The media franchise was created by Dick Wolf and began back in 1990 with the premiere of Law & Order on NBC.
As you may know, the series concluded after 20 seasons in 2010, but of course, there was plenty more gas in the tank with other series in the franchise.
From Law & Order: Special Victims Unit to Criminal Intent, there have been a number of titles to captivate viewers over the years, and Organized Crime is set to be yet another in a long line.
So, do we have a release date yet?
Is the Law & Order: Organized Crime release date confirmed?
- A release date for Law & Order: Organized Crime has not been confirmed but the series is expected to premiere in early 2021.
In October 2020, Variety reported that Matt Olmstead departed the project as showrunner due to creative reasons.
Ahead of the news, the show was scheduled to air on NBC in the fall, but the premiere wasn’t included in the fall schedule that the network later issued.
In December, on the other hand, Variety highlighted that Ilene Chaiken had come aboard the project as executive producer and showrunner. This was announced as a result of her signing a deal with Universal Television.
She is perhaps best known as the co-creator of The L Word, while she also served as an executive producer on The L Word: Generation Q, the recent reboot; other credits include Empire.
What to expect from Law & Order: Organized Crime
The series will centre on Elliot Stabler, with Christopher Meloni reprising his Law & Order: SVU role.
He is in charge of the organized crime division of the NYPD and will reunite fans with the character since his departure in SVU season 12 back in 2011. We can expect to follow him as he readjusts to the lifestyle after being away for a decade, grappling with challenges new and old.
Fred Berner, Terry Miller, Arthur W. Forney and Peter Jankowski are also aboard as executive producers.
