There will be two iterations of Law & Order on NBC next season, but neither of them will be the mother ship.
NBC announced May 14 that Law & Order will end its "historic run" on the network May 24, confirming speculation that surfaced yesterday about the demise of the show.
"The full measure of the collective contributions made by Dick Wolf and his Law & Order franchise over the last two decades to the success of NBC and Universal Media Studios cannot be overstated," Jeff Gaspin, Chairman of NBC Universal Television Entertainment said in a statement. "The legacy of his original Law & Order series will continue to make an impact like no other series before."
The network has renewed Law & Order:SVU and will add a third spin-off, Law & Order: Los Angeles, or LOLA as it has been dubbed. Like its sister series', LOLA is from Universal Media Studios. Wolf and Brotherhood creator Blake Masters are executive producers.
NBC has already announced a slew of pickups for the 2010-11 season including J.J. Abrams' Undercovers, Jerry Bruckheimer's Chase and The Event and comedies Perfect Couples, Love Bites and Outsourced.
