This hard-hitting and emotional series chronicles the life and crimes of the elite Special Victims Unit of the New York Police Department. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit was created by Emmy Award-winning producer Dick Wolf. SVU celebrated its 300th episode in October 2012.
When a teenager is found dead in the Hudson River, Lt. Benson suspects Rob Miller is behind the mysterious death but can't prove it. Despite having only circumstantial evidence, ADA Stone takes the case to court before Miller can destroy more lives.
NBC announced another history-making renewal today for Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, giving the drama three more seasons that will take it to at least Season 24.
While not a surprise given the show's continued strong performance, the news is noteworthy as it extends the veteran procedural's already-record-setting run as American television's longest-running scripted live-action series. Before its current 21st season, the previous record was held by the original Law & Order, as well as 1950s western Gunsmoke, which both lasted 20 seasons.
