TCA: ‘Law & Order’ is done. Really.

“Law & Order” is not coming back on any network, nor in any form.Lawandordervl21

So said creator Dick Wolf, who told TCA scribes that the procedural mothership that ran for 20 seasons before being canceled by NBC is dead and buried.

“I can confirm that is has moved into the history books,” he said, while later on adding: “We exhausted every effort.”

Wolf wouldn’t comment on whether he was unwilling to take a lower fee in order to keep the show on NBC, or if he and A&E and TNT, both of which was rumored to be interested in the show, were close to finalizing a deal.

But he said there was no deal he left on the table at the Peacock.

“There are so many factors that entered into the network’s decision. Everything in life is a negotiation. In 25 yeas on air at NBC, we never failed to make a deal when there was a deal to be made.”
