Law & Order: Organized Crime Officially Renewed for Season 5 at Peacock Following NBC Cancellation

Detective Elliot Stabler's time on NBC is coming to a close, as Law & Order: Organized Crime will not return for a fifth season on the network. Despite that, the show will most likely live on, as a deal is being finalized for it to move to Peacock for a ten-episode season. This will almost certainly put an end to the Thursday night Law & Order block on NBC, which first came together in winter 2022, after the original Law & Order series was revived. There were hints that NBC was dissatisfied with the all-Law & Order block, as their initial fall 2023 schedule had Organized Crime benched in favor of new drama Found. Though it posted decent ratings for 10 PM, with a 0.36 average thus far, the network decided to cancel the show after its fourth season. Its retention from parent show SVU was middling at best, and it shed 25% of its season three audience this season. Creator Dick Wolf's shows are a key draw for NBCUniversal's streaming service, Peacock, and, if the deal for season five goes through, Organized Crime will be the first Wolf series to be a Peacock exclusive. Chris Meloni stars in the series, reprising his iconic role from SVU, alongside Ainsley Seiger, Danielle Moné Truitt, and Rick Gonzalez. This is a correct prediction for The TV Ratings Guide.

Update: Peacock has now confirmed their renewal of Law & Order: Organized Crime. The series will air its fifth season exclusively on the streaming service.
