Law & Order: SVU and Chicago Med have been renewed as NBC extends its deal with uberproducer Dick Wolf, the network announced Monday.
SVU will returned for an 18th season, while Chicago Med will come back for a second. Both Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. were previously renewed for a fifth and fourth season, respectively.
“Dick Wolf is a without a doubt one of the greatest producers in the history of dramatic television,” said NBC chief Robert Greenblatt. “The Law & Order legacy would have been enough to set him apart from all the rest, but the Chicago franchise now kicks him into the stratosphere. He has been a defining voice of NBC for over a generation, and he is most welcome at this company forever.”
NBC’s deal with Wolf now extends through 2020, as he develops the third spin-off in the Chicago franchise, Chicago Law, as well as reality series Law & Order: You the Jury, where the audience will decide the binding result of a live court case.
