NBC announced today that Law & Order has been picked up for Season 23. The news comes as the show winds down its current 22nd season.

The flagship series premiered in 1990, going on to air 456 episodes across 20 seasons before being cancelled in 2010. 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 spawned a total of six spin-offs, two of which are currently on the air.

The network revived the series for a 21st season last year, slotting it in as a midseason entry with a 10-episode run that was its shortest to-date. It was moved to a regular fall premiere with a longer run last September. Franchise mates 'Law & Order: SVU' and 'Law & Order: Organized Crime' were renewed for the 2023-2024 season today as well.
