Law And Order 2022 - The Famous Show Is Back
NBC's Law & Order 2022returns with more ripped-from-the-headlines stories on Thursday, September 22. Hugh Dancy (Hannibal, The Path) returns as Nolan Price, a senior prosecutor's assistant and Oldelya Halevi (Good Trouble) plays ADA.
Camryn Manheim (The Practice) plays Frank Cosgrove, and franchise veteran Sam Waterston plays DA Jack McCoy. In addition, Claire Coffee from Grimm appears as a lawyer in at least one episode this season.
However, Anthony Anderson does not reprise his role as Detective Kevin Bernard. (As previously reported by TVLine, the L&O alum had signed on for only one year of NBC's revival.)
The new season promises a lot, including an unprecedented three-way crossover between the flagship procedural Law And Order and its spinoffs Law And Order: SVU and Law And Order: Organized Crime, which serves as the season premiere for all three shows.
On Law & Order, Jeffrey Donovan plays Detective Frank Cosgrove, and Camryn Manheim plays Lieutenant Kate Dixon. For the first time in the show's history, all three franchises are featured in a massive, intertwined Premiere Event. Is anyone else getting chills?
The casts of Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Law & Order: SVU are all joining forces for a three-hour action-packed episode that will have you on the edge of your seats.
Lisa Katz, NBCU Television and Streaming's president of scripted programming, said in a statement:
This unprecedented scheduling block is a tribute to all the Law & Order fans who’ve been watching this iconic brand for four decades on NBC. We couldn’t be more excited to open our season with such a historic event.- Lisa Katz
As previously stated, Sam Waterston returns as District Attorney Jack McCoy. Waterston is now the cast's longest-serving member. Camryn Manheim, another Law & Order alum, joins Waterston.
Manheim's resume is also impressive, having played Ellenor in The Practice, Lieutenant Cosgrove in Stumptown, and Diane Claypool in Person of Interest.
Law And Order Season 22's main cast also includes:
- Jeffrey Donovan (Burn Notice, Fargo).
- Hugh Dancy (The Good Fight, Downton Abbey: A New Era)
- And Odelya Halevi (Good Trouble, Black Adam).
With the early announcement that Anthony Anderson will not return as Kevin Bernard in the new season, there was some speculation about who would be his new partner. According to Deadline, that person is Mehcad Brooks (Mortal Kombat, A Fall from Grace). He will play Detective Jalen Shaw.
According to TV Line, Grimm star Claire Coffee appears as an attorney in the new season. It is not known how long she'll be on the show for, so it can't be said if she'll be there for a long time or just for a few episodes.
Law & Order is primarily a crime procedural series. Weekly episodes focus on new crimes that the detectives attempt to solve and suspected criminals that the district attorney's office attempts to prosecute.
As a result, viewers can anticipate some thought-provoking cases with the occasional unexpected ending. Furthermore, Frank Cosgrove will receive a lot of attention as he tries to adjust to his new partner.
A crossover event between Law & Order, Law & Order: SVU, and Law & Order: Organized Crime occurs for the first time in "dun dun" history.
While fans are used to seeing the SVU and Organized Crime units work together on a case, and even SVU working with the Law & Order police squad, they aren't used to seeing all three teams collaborate. It seems only natural that the crossover event kicks off each series' new season.
Creator Dick Wolf said in a statement, reflecting on seeing Olivia Benson, Elliot Stabler, Jack McCoy, and the rest of the gang all together:
Nothing demonstrates the power of the Law & Order brand more than an ambitious three-hour event with a story that is truly ripped from the headlines. Rick [Eid] and Gwen [Sigan] did an incredible job writing a compelling script, and there isn't a bigger or better way to kick off the new season of Law & Order Thursday.- Dick Wolf
