Law & Order: SVU Season 23 premiere date set for September 2021

Law & Order: SVU is part of the fall schedule on NBC, and it now has a premiere date. Here’s when Law & Order: SVU Season 23 is coming.

Fall 2021 will be here before we know it. Our favorite TV shows will be back, and the schedule will feel a little closer to normal than the last season.

TVLine has the full list of premiere dates on NBC for fall 2021. Law & Order: SVU Season 23 is on the list.

The longest-running crime drama on the network is gearing up for another exciting series. The bad news is that it won’t be part of a Thursday night of Law & Order shows with For the Defense being canceled before getting off the ground. However, we still have SVU and Organized Crime to look forward to.

When will Law & Order: SVU Season 23 premiere on NBC?

The new season will arrive on Thursday, Sept. 23. We found out in May that the show would take on the 9/8c timeslot.

It will do, but there are some changes for the first couple of weeks. Law & Order: SVU Season 23 will premiere with a two-hour special. That special will then lead into the premiere of Organized Crime Season 2.

The following week, Organized Crime will have two episodes, so SVU will need to air in the 8/7c timeslot again. After that, it can move back to its normal timeslot.

Instead of For the Defense taking on the earlier slot, NBC is moving The Blacklist to that time slot from Friday nights. It’s going to be a night of crime dramas on NBC.

Now there’s the question of whether the premiere will air on the date expected. There is a chance that some of the premiere dates will need to be pushed to a little later in the fall. This is all going to depend on how filming in the summer goes. The good news is with pandemic protocols already in place, there shouldn’t be a need to push the dates.

Law & Order: SVU Season 23 will premiere on Thursday, Sept. 23 at 8/7c on NBC. Catch up the following day on Hulu.
