ITV has commissioned Kudos Film and Television to produce another 13 episodes of LAW & ORDER: UK, the successful spin-off from the previously American-only Law & Order franchise.

The third series of Law & Order: UK launched last month with more than 5 million viewers and with series four to air in the new year the drama has established itself as one of ITV’s most popular.

The brainchild of creator Dick Wolf, Law & Order remains the longest running crime series in the history of U.S. television, with successful spin-offs including the new Law & Order: LA, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Law & Order: UK is currently being shown on BBC America in the US to hugely positive critical response.

Dick Wolf, creator and executive producer of Law & Order, says: “I am absolutely thrilled that ITV has ordered another year of Law & Order: UK. Stephen Garrett and the entire Kudos team have done a fabulous job of creative stewardship.”

Law & Order: UK season 3 airs in the UK on ITV1, Thursdays at 9pm. Season one is currently airing on BBC America, Fridays at 9/8c.
