The original Law & Order will be returning to NBC after 11 years off the air!

Law & Order premiered in 1990 and went off the air in 2010, spending 20 years on TV with 456 episodes.

The show will be returning to NBC where it left off with Season 21.

Cast details and a premiere date haven’t been announced yet, but characters from the original series are expected to return.

The Law & Order franchise has had over a dozen spinoffs, with the latest one being Law & Order: Organized Crime, starring former Law & Order: SVU actor Chris Meloni.

Law & Order: SVU is the longest-running series in the franchise—it premiered in 1999 and it’s currently in its 23rd season. Law & Order: Criminal Intent was on air for almost 10 years.

Dick Wolf has been trying to revive the show for years and it’s returning with Rick Eid as showrunner.

“There are very few things in life that are literally dreams come true,” Wolf said to Variety about the show being reviced. “This is mine.”
