Will every ‘Law & Order’ show be renewed, with one having a shorter season?

Good news for fans of Dick Wolf-produced TV shows on NBC! Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU, Law & Order: Organized Crime, Chicago Med, Chicago PD, and Chicago Fire have all been renewed earlier in 2023.

A statement was released confirming the exciting news at the time. In the statement, Dick Wolf expressed his satisfaction and excitement about continuing his long-standing relationship with Universal Television and NBC. He also acknowledged the incredible efforts of the casts, producers, and writers of all six shows, attributing their success to the loyal fanbase that has kept the NBC shows on the air for a cumulative 84 seasons. It’s an impressive milestone!

While it is presumed that each of the renewed shows will have at least 22 episodes, there is a twist. One of the hits has received a partial season order, resulting in only 13 episodes for this particular show. This news might leave some fans disappointed, but it’s still something to look forward to.

So, what can we expect from the upcoming seasons of these beloved shows? Let’s delve into the details and find out!
