Cancelled after twenty seasons in 2010, the Law & Order mother ship is eyeing a revival at NBC,
Exec producer Dick Wolf and NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt have confirmed plans to revive Law & Order Season 21 as an event series, per Variety:
The idea would be to cherry-pick cast members from various incarnations of the “L&O” mothership and create an event series consisting of 10 to 13 episodes.
“We’ve been talking about it on and off for the past year or so, trying to figure out how to do it right,” Greenblatt said. “We would only do a close-ended [season]. I don’t t think we’d start the show up again. Nothing’s ruled out, but I think initially we’re thinking, let’s just do another set of episodes and see what we have and take it from there.”
“Everybody involved is busy. It’s scheduling,” said Wolf. “I know Sam [Waterston] wants to do it.”
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancellation graveyard to see whether Law & Order can indeed resurrect…
