'Law and Order' Is Canceled
Long-running U.S. cop show "Law & Order" has been canceled after 20 years. Dick Wolf's highly-successful New York-based drama premiered in America in 1990 and went on to spawn two separate spin-offs - "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent".
A Los Angeles-based "Law & Order" is still being planned. But the original has been scrapped. TV executives at NBC have decided not to take the original format into its 21st season, confirming to E! Online that the show has been axed.
"Law & Order" has narrowly missed out on being crowned the longest-running TV drama in history - it is currently tied with western Gunsmoke, which ran for 20 season before its finale in 1975.
"Law & Order" stars Steven Zirnkilton, S. Epatha Merkerson, Sam Waterston, Jerry Orbach and Steven Hill among others.
