NBC to bring back original Law & Order at least a decade since last episode

Law & Order debuted in 1990

NBC in the US is bringing back Law & Order, the procedural series that spawned a host of spin-offs, over a decade after it last aired.

The new season of the show will be its 21st on NBC, where Law & Order originally concluded in May 2010.

The series will once again examine the police who investigate crimes and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders.

Creator Dick Wolf is on board as an executive producer of the show, alongside writer/showrunner Rick Eid, Arthur Forney and Peter Jankowski.

The series will be produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Wolf Entertainment.

Susan Rovner, chairman of entertainment content at NBCUniversal television and streaming, described Law & Order as one of the most iconic shows in television history.

A premiere date and cast will be announced at a later date. The show, which made its debut in 1990, has spawned several spin-offs including Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Law & Order: Organised Crime.

It comes after another spin-off, Law & Order: For the Defense, to which NBC had given a straight-to-series order earlier this year, was scrapped in July.
