‘Law & Order’ Canceled; ‘L&O: LA,’ ‘SVU’ Picked Up

Law & OrderUPDATE: Variety is reporting Law & Order is canceled but NBC has renewed Law & Order: Los Angeles and Law & Order: SVU. More shortly.

Our earlier summary:

At the risk of everything changing right after we post this, let it never be said that we don’t enjoy series with good cliffhangers — and living its own cliffhanger is Law & Order, which as the ultimate procedural always wraps up its stories in neat, concise packages by the end of each hour. But as of Friday morning, the jury was still out as to whether NBC and Dick Wolf had come to some settlement about the future of the long-running show. Late last night it was canceled — and then not — and, well: Stay tuned. Or: To be continued. Or: not.
