Brian Stelter and Bill Carter are reporting that NBC has confirmed it is cancelling ‘Law & Order.”
NBC confirmed Friday that it had canceled “Law & Order,” bringing an end to one of the largest television productions in New York.
“Law & Order” was on the verge of becoming the longest-running drama in prime time television history, surpassing “Gunsmoke.” But it appears that the “Law & Order” executive producer Dick Wolf will have to settle for a tie. The final episode will be shown on May 24.
