NBC announced today that Law & Order: Organized Crime has been picked up for a second season. The news, which comes five episodes into its run, is no surprise given the series' strong start. Airing Thursday nights following its long-running franchise-mate 'Law & Order: SVU', the show has had no trouble garnering its share of viewers in the 10:00pm time slot.

Law & Order: Organized Crime sees former SVU detective Elliot Stabler return to the NYPD to take on organized crime after suffering a devastating personal loss. After being away for the past decade, he must adapt to all the changes in the criminal justice system, the city, and his department. Stabler now aims to rebuild his life while leading an elite task force that is dismantling the city's most powerful crime syndicates.

The series is the seventh installment in the franchise but only the second one still on the air. The network still hopes to grow the Law & Order brand though, as a straight-to-series order was recently given to 'Law & Order: For the Defense'.

Look for Season 2 of Law & Order: Organized Crime sometime in 2022.
