NBC will bring back original 'Law & Order' for 21st season
LOS ANGELES (AP) — More than a decade after it last aired, “Law & Order” is coming back to NBC. The network announced Tuesday that it is bringing the cops-and-courts police drama back for a 21st season. When the show left the airwaves in May 2010, it was tied with “Gunsmoke” for the longest running prime-time TV drama. NBC says the series will keep the split format of focusing on police officers investigating crime and the prosecutors who take the cases to court. No cast or premiere date have been announced. Creator Dick Wolf's shows remain a popular draw for NBC, with his three prime-time “Chicago” series making up the network’s Wednesday night schedule.
