Renewed: Law & Order: SVU, Chicago Med get 3 more seasons
Prolific US producer Dick Wolf has signed a mammoth five-year with NBCU.
US procedural Law & Order: SVU has been given a 3 season renewal.
The pickup will take the series, already the longest-running primetime live-action show in US history, through to a historic 24th season.
The news comes as prolific producer Dick Wolf has signed a mammoth five-year extension to his deal at Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios, which sources say is worth nine figures.
There are also 3 season renewals for Chicago Fire, Chicago PD and Chicago Med, which is being couched as the biggest deal in US TV history.
“I’m gratified and excited that Universal will remain our home for five more years,” said Wolf. “This new term deal complements our recently concluded agreement to make Peacock one of the primary destinations for both the L&O and Chicago brands, as well as our extraordinary three-year NBC broadcast pickups on all four current series. We are now supercharged to expand our business on new platforms, both domestically and internationally, while continuing to produce our current and future series for broadcasting and streaming networks.”
