Law & Order: SVU and One Chicago Shows Renewed by NBC for Three Seasons Each

NBC is continuing to renew shows early, and is even continuing to hand out multiple-season renewals. This time around, it's the four Dick Wolf shows on their network, Law & Order: SVU and Chicago Med, Fire and PD that are each receiving pickups for three more seasons. The TV super-creator also signed a new deal with Universal TV that spans the next five years and is worth nine figures.

Law & Order: SVU is the longest-running drama series in television history, and despite its long run, it's not showing any signs of slowing down. The show is currently airing Thursdays at 10, and has done an admirable job of growing from a slew of terribly-rated comedies that NBC has thrown before it. Mariska Hargitay and Ice-T are the show's longest-running cast members, with Hargitay being the only original cast member remaining and Ice-T being a part of the show since season two. Kelli Giddish and Peter Scanavino have been a part of the show for multiple seasons as well, while Jamie Gray Hyder rounds out the cast, after having joined the show during its current season. The renewal will take it through its twenty-fourth season.

The One Chicago franchise has become one of TV's most successful franchises, with all three shows being some of the top-rated dramas on television. They make up the entirety of the NBC Wednesday night block, a night that is consistently one of NBC's highest-rated nights. Chicago Fire came along first, and this renewal will give the show at least eleven seasons. Next was Chicago PD, which has been renewed through season ten. Chicago Med, the third in the series, has been renewed for season eight.
