Law & Order will be making a comeback to the small screen after 11 and a half years since it was canceled. Instead, the media giant picked up Law & Order: Los Angeles and renewed Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for Season 12. 456 episodes in its original 20-season run, Law & Order came close to beating Gunsmoke‘s record for longest-running primetime drama before the original series was canceled in May 2010.
Reports reveal that Law & Order Season 21 would be written by the show’s original creator, Dick Wolfe, and writer-showrunner, Rick Eid.
