The NBC series has reached a milestone 100 episodes, but the end is not in sight, according to star James Spader.
Speaking to Variety, Spader suggests Season 5 wont be the last in the NBC crime drama’s run:
“What I’m really amazed at is that after 100 episodes we have so much more story to tell. We’ve still got a ways to go until the endgame.”
Jeffrey Frost, president of Sony Pictures Television Studios, believes the show’s 100+ episode run is “nothing short of remarkable” in this day and age:
“For a series to experience such longevity, especially a drama series, speaks to the brilliant storytelling and spectacular performances of everyone involved. From Sony’s perspective, it reflects the importance of independent studios to distribution platforms in a vertically integrated environment.”
