ICYMI: Law & Order: SVU alum Christopher Meloni is set to reprise his iconic character, Elliot Stabler, in an all-new show, titled Law & Order: Organized Crime. So, what is the spin-off series about? And will it feature more O.G. cast members? Keep reading for all the details.

1. When does 'Law & Order: Organized Crime' premiere?

Unfortunately, NBC hasn’t released an official date, but it’s expected to premiere sometime in fall 2020. Law & Order: Organized Crime will air on Thursdays at 10 p.m. directly after SVU, so we highly recommend you extend your DVR recording.

2. How many episodes are in 'Law & Order: Organized Crime'?

Season one of Law & Order: Organized Crime will consist of 13 action-packed episodes. It’s much shorter than SVU, which typically has more than 20 episodes per season. But hey, we’ll take what we can get.

3. What is 'Law & Order: Organized Crime' about?

Organized Crime will focus on Elliot Stabler as he returns to the NYPD as the head of the organized crime division. This might surprise some Law & Order fans, since Stabler retired from the police force in season 13. Nevertheless, the spin-off will follow the character as he tries to navigate the department’s ever-changing protocol.

According to NBC’s official statement, “The city and police department have changed dramatically in the decade he’s been away, and he must adapt to a criminal justice system in the midst of its own moment of reckoning. Throughout the series, we will follow Stabler’s journey to find absolution and rebuild his life, while leading a new elite task force that is taking apart the city’s most powerful criminal syndicates one by one.”

4. Who’s in 'Law & Order: Organized Crime'?

NBC hasn’t released any further details about the cast. All we know is Meloni is playing Stabler as he returns to the NYPD, so there’s a good chance we’ll see mix of old and new faces.

5. Is there a trailer?

Not yet. But when there is, you can bet we’ll be the first ones to watch.
