Law & Order: Organized Crime has added Breaking Bad star Dean Norris to its cast.

The police procedural drama is due to return for its fourth season in January. TVLine reports that Norris is set to join the show in a recurring role as Randall Stabler, Elliot Stabler's older brother.

Randall, who distanced himself from the Stabler family at a young age, has maintained a lingering tension with Elliot which is rooted in a past incident involving their father.

Season four will also introduce Elliot's younger brother Joe Jr, who was dishonourably discharged from the army after around 15 years of service and has since found employment with a British wine merchant.

It has not yet been confirmed who will be playing Joe Jr.

Meanwhile, it was announced in October that former Ozark executive producer John Shiban is replacing Sean Jablonski as Law & Order: Organized Crime's showrunner.

Jablonski, who stepped down from the role in March, marked the fourth showrunner within a year. He succeeded Bryan Goluboff, who took over from Barry O'Brien, the interim showrunner following the departure of Ilene Chaiken in February 2022.
