Law & Order has tapped Chicago Justice‘s Michael S. Chernuchin as showrunner for its upcoming Season 20 renewal campaign, THR confirms:
Chernuchin is the second new showrunner to come onboard SVU in as many years. Rick Eid served as showrunner for season 18, replacing longtime leader Warren Leight.
Eid exited SVU earlier this month to take over as showrunner of Chicago P.D. after co-creator Matt Olmstead left for a lucrative overall deal at ABC Studios.
