Home Television Law & Order Not Cancelled, Negotiations On

“Law & Order” has not been cancelled by NBC. Hysterical blog posts are incorrect. My sources say NBC will likely place a small order for new episodes. This will constitute a 21st season and break the record for longest running drama. It will also give producers time to wrap up and give devoted fans a big finale. Expect six to eight episode order, says source. “All is still in flux.” Meanwhile Dick Wolf skipped farewell lunch for senior cast member S. Epatha Merkerson last week.
