NBC Renewal Status Report: ‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ Mulls Move To Peacock; ‘Night Court’, ‘Lopez vs Lopez’ & ‘Extended Family’ Waiting

EXCLUSIVE: In a series on broadcast network series renewals.NBC is well ahead of the video game this season on the renewal-decision front, handing early pickups to freshman dramas Found and The Irrational As One Chicago, Law & & Order and Law & & Order: SVU while canceling Radical Change, La Brea and Magnum PI

That leaves simply a headful of programs on the bubble, mainly on the funny side. The one drama series still waiting to hear its fate is Law & & Order: Organized CrimeIt’s constantly been an outlier, a departure from the Dick Wolf procedural brand name with its darker and serialized storytelling. Potentially as an outcome, the series starring Christopher Meloni has actually carried out listed below the 5 other Wolf dramas on the direct NBC network, while it has actually apparently succeeded on Peacock.

That tail end might show crucial to The mob‘s future, which has fans so anxious they are releasing petitions to assist get the program restored. I hear that if NBC decides not to continue with Season 5 of The mobthe series might move to Peacock, providing the NBCUniversal banner an initial Wolf drama series to choose the Wolf library and next-day runs of the Wolf Entertainment NBC series that are amongst the platform’s most seen titles.

According to sources, there are continuous discussions about The mob possibly relocating to Peacock for Season 5. There is a plan for that– another series in the Law & & Order franchise that began on NBC, Lawbreaker Intentmade an effective shift to another platform, operating on USA Network for 4 extra seasons after the preliminary 6 on NBC.

Likely factoring into NBC’s choice on The mob would be the internal reception and screening for network’s 2 drama pilots, Matches: LA and Grosse Pointe Garden Society(The network currently has brand-new medical drama series Dr. Wolf starring Zachary Quinto slated for next season.)

Likely not factoring into the choice in the meantime is the future of NBC’s 10 p.m. hour as there has actually been no more conversation of the network dropping the hour, a possibility that was checked out 2 years back. All 3 Chicago series, which air as a three-hour Wednesday lineup, have actually been restored for next season.

Of NBC’s 3 existing funny series, Night Court — the most enjoyed and highest-rated one– is thought about most likely to get restored. I hear discussions with series manufacturer Warner Bros television are continuous and moving along, making a renewal in the future a likelihood.

Sophomore Lopez vs Lopez and freshman Extended Family are both on shakier ground and greatly on the bubble,
