Is there a Law & Order Season 24?

Yes. NBC announced on March 21, 2024 that the show had been renewed for Season 24. It's currently airing its 23rd season, which is about 10-episodes shorter than usual due to production delays that resulted from the 2023 writers' and actors' strikes.

What is the release date for Law & Order Season 24?

Season 24 will air during the 2024-2024 primetime season, which means it will come back this fall, likely in September.

Who is cast in Law & Order Season 24?

NBC hasn't made any casting announcements at this point, so for now let's assume the main players (newbies included) will be back. They include:

At this point, there's no reason to believe Jeffrey Donovan, who played no-nonsense, old-school detective Frank Cosgrove, will be back. After starring in Seasons 21 and 22, he did not return for Season 23.
