Donald Trump-inspired Law & Order SVU episode delayed again

Air date is now TBD

Posted on


“Unstoppable,” the upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU inspired by Donald Trump, has been delayed once more and will no longer air Nov. 16, EW has confirmed. The episode has yet to be rescheduled.

The postponement was first set in motion last week — before the Nov. 8 presidential election that resulted in an unexpected Trump victory — when NBC pre-empted new episodes of its Wednesday night series Blindspot, SVU, and Chicago P.D. with reruns to air against game 7 of the World Series on Fox. The programming change pushed several original episodes to subsequent weeks. Along with “Unstoppable,” the upcoming SVU episode “Great Expectations” has also been given a TBD air date.

Originally slated to run Oct. 26 and already rescheduled once before, “Unstoppable” features guest star Gary Cole (Veep) as a politician whose campaign goes haywire when several women go public with damaging accusations. Watch a promo for the episode below.
