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 fall this year. 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.
