Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 4 is set for a January premiere on NBC. Here’s everything we know about the season so far.

Out of all the scripted dramas, Law & Order: Organized Crime was one of those least affected. It wasn’t set to return in the fall, which meant that the episode count wasn’t set to be a full one. That doesn’t mean we didn’t start to worry as the SAG-AFTRA strike continued into November.

Now the strike is over. Production has started on a lot of shows, including the Christopher Meloni one. Here’s everything we know about the return of the series, the cast, and much more.

When will Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 4 premiere on NBC?

NBC has set some early return dates for a lot of shows. While ABC and CBS is holding off until mid-February, NBC has opted for January return dates. Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 4 will premiere on Thursday, Jan. 18.

The episode will air at 10 p.m. ET/PT, following its fellow Law & Order shows. Yes, episodes will be on Peacock the following day.

How many episodes are in Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 4?

This series wasn’t affected by the strike action when it came to the episode count. NBC had already announced that the series would have 13 episodes this season. This is slightly more than the first season, but less than the previous two.

The decision was two-fold. It would work as a cost-cutting measure, but it would also allow to keep the storyline contained. This series tends to have a season-long arc instead of individual storylines like Law & Order and SVU.

Who is the new showrunner for Law & Order: Organized Crime

This series has seen a revolving door of showrunners from the start. Sean Jablonski left in March 2023 and then SVU boss David Graziano stepped back after finishing up the third season. A new showrunner is coming in for the fourth season. John Shiban will take on that role.

Who will return for Season 4 of Law & Order: Organized Crime?

We’re expecting the majority of the main cast to return. Of course, we will see Meloni back as Elliot Stabler. There isn’t an Organized Crime series without him.

While the other Dick Wolf shows on NBC were set to see some characters missing here and there to save money, that was never going to happen with Organized Crime. This was due to already cutting the season to 13 episodes.

We will see the following back:

  • Christopher Meloni as Detective Elliot Stabler
  • Danielle Moné Truitt as Sergeant Ayanna Bell
  • Ainsley Seiger as Detective Jet Slootmaekers
  • Rick Gonzalez as Detective Bobby Reyes

Brent Antonello will not return at Detective Jamie Whelan. His character was sadly killed offer at the end of the third season.

There will be some new characters joining the series, but cast members haven’t been announced just yet. It’s time to learn more about the Stabler family, with his brothers coming into the story.

What to expect in Organized Crime Season 4

As of right now, we don’t know anything about the storyline. It’s not clear what type of gang or organization Stabler and his team will need to take down.

We are excited to see how Stablers brothers will affect things. The brothers don’t have the best relationship, and that could be due to how Elliot went into law enforcement. Will Stabler be forced to get his brothers out of a tricky situation? Will he find out that they are involved in whatever organization he’s trying to take down?

What about crossovers with Law & Order: SVU? Nothing has been confirmed just yet, but we are looking forward to at least one. After all, the two shows have managed crossovers well, and we need more Bensler on our screens.

Next. Is Kelli Giddish returning to Law & Order: SVU full-time?. dark

Law & Order: Organized Crime is available to stream on Peacock.
