Law and Order One of NBC’s latest dramas was delayed before it aired. Next Law & Order: For Defense, the sequence has dropped but the last part of the Law & Order vote is being built up beforehand.

In the month of May, the peacock network stated that For Defense has been offered a straight-to-sequence order and that the official show will air on Thursday nights at 8:00 PM this fall, led from SVU and Organized Crime. This could offer the showrunners, Dick Wolf, three full nights of network programming. Wolf produces NBC’s three Chicago dramas on Wednesday nights and this fall, has three FBI dramas on Tuesdays.

CSI’s Carol Mendelsohn was set to lend a hand as executive producer, alongside Wolf, Arthur Forney, Julie Weitz, and Peter Jankowski. “This latest drama is thrilling for me privately,” said Wolf in the month of May. “We looked at the previous 30 years on the dramas that had a restriction. Right now, it would be terrible to play it safe, and to be able to do that with Carol is an honor and a chance for both of us to make TV that hasn’t been done before.”

Currently, designs for Law & Order: For Defense have been scrapped, The Blacklist will run Friday through Thursday nights to fill the slot.

This is not the initial time that NBC has made the schemes fall into the last sequence of the show. Law and Order: Hate Crimes was commissioned in the month of September 2018 but was scrapped six months later.

NBC Entertainment co-chairman Paul Telegdy later said he was “very confident” that the newest hire in Wolf’s vote “will happen someday.” There was word that Hate Crimes was prosecuting Peacock but that hasn’t happened yet.
