The franchise original is returning to television.
September 28, 2021
NBC is reviving a classic. The network announced today that Law & Order is coming back for a 21st season, with the news coming over 11 years after its series finale.
The flagship series premiered in 1990, going on to air 456 episodes across 20 seasons. It became known for following a two-part format, with the first portion of each episode focused on the investigation of a crime, and the second portion detailing its prosecution. The show has spawned a total of six spin-offs, two of which are currently on the air.
It is unclear if the revived Law & Order will premiere as a midseason entry during the current season, or if it will end up as a fall 2022 entry. When it does return, the show will continue where the original left off back in 2010. Official casting announcements have yet to be made.

But this says NBC is settling. They're going with the tried and true even as streaming is trying new stuff. This is not the network of "ER" and "Hill Street Blues".
Wolf is about telling stories, original Law and Order had some of the best, with characters from all sides of the political debate. That's what made the episodes so good.
