There has been a setback in the release of America’s favorite crime drama, Law and Order Organised Crime. The first season of the show was meant to be released by April 1, 2021. This setback is a result of the farewell bade by the show’s creator Matt Olmstead. Chicago Med creator Olmstead left NBC for Universal TV, and since then, a replacement is being sought for a new showrunner. Till a replacement is found, production of the TV show has been paused indefinitely. The TV show is produced by Peter Jankowski (FBI: Most Wanted), Terry Miller, and Arthur Forney.
The show is expected to see the return of Chris Meloni from the show Law and Order: SVU. The show has also been scheduled to air immediately after Law and Order: SVU on Thursdays, had it been released as scheduled.
Season 1 opened with the death of Stabler’s wife, following his relentless quest for her killers, which led him to Richard Wheatley, a strong and cunning crime lord (Dylan McDermott).
Law & Order: Organized Crime will join SVU on NBC on Thursdays this fall, giving Dick Wolf practically two full nights on the network after a late-spring start last season. Will Richard Wheatley still be in charge from behind bars? Will Stabler and Olivia (Mariska Hargitay) get together in the end? There are a lot of unanswered questions, but here’s everything we know so far about Season 2 of Law & Order: Organized Crime.
