NBC announced today that Law & Order: Organized Crime has been picked up for a third season. Coming with two episodes remaining in its sophomore run, the news is not surprising, as the drama currently ranks as #1 in its timeslot on Thursday nights among adults 18-49.

The series is the seventh installment in the franchise and one of three currently on the air. The original 'Law & Order' was renewed for Season 22 today, while 'Law & Order: SVU' received a 3-year pickup in 2020.

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.

Look for Season 3 of Law & Order: Organized Crime this fall as part of the 2022-2023 season.
