LAW & ORDER – One for NBC and one for USA

Law & Order

According to The Hollywood Reporter, I am glad to announce that all three “Law & Order” have been renewed. Law & Order: SVU had already been renewed at an earlier time, but the renewal of Law & Order and Law & Order: CI makes a full circle. The shows will both get 22 new episodes.
Here is the thing though, although there will be no change to Law & Order, it will be back on NBC. Law & Order: CI, however, will move to USA (with apparently an encore presentation on NBC).

This is what NBC Universal president and CEO Jeff Zucker had to say about the move of Law & Order: CI:

“Adding such a bona fide established, successful show to USA’s already powerful lineup would make the network’s No. 1 position on cable even more dominant and would enable it to emerge as the fifth television network along with ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.”
