The legend that of Dick Wolf will continue for a while longer at NBC.
First, NBC has given an 18th season renewal for Law & Order: SVU as well as a pickup for the second season of Wolf’s newest drama, Chicago Med.
Dick Wolf’s other NBC series Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire had already been renewed.
Wolf is also in active development for the latest incarnation of the Chicago franchise, Chicago Law, as well as the reality series Law & Order: You the Jury, where the audience will decide the binding result of a live court case.
“Dick Wolf is a without a doubt one of the greatest producers in the history of dramatic television,” said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “The ‘Law & Order’ legacy would have been enough to set him apart from all the rest, but the Chicago franchise now kicks him into the stratosphere. He has been a defining voice of NBC for over a generation, and he is most welcome at this company forever.”
There are also rumors floating around that Dick Wolf may try and bring back the original Law & Order series for another run on the network. Only time will tell, so stay tuned as we continue to follow that story.
