Law & Order Star Wants The Most Underrated Spinoff to Come Back

Dick Wolf’s long-running Law & Order franchise currently features three shows. But is there room for one more?

Since Dick Wolf’s crime procedural Law & Order first premiered on NBC in 1990, television hasn’t spent a single moment without it or one of its many spinoffs.

Currently the Law & Order franchise has three programs running: the reboot of the flagship series (that just finished its second season and 22nd overall), Law & Order: SVU (which has been renewed for a 25th season), and Law & Order: Organized Crime (which has been renewed for a fourth season). Still with all that Law & Order in production (and that’s not even to mention the many re-runs on NBCUniversal’s cadre of cable channels), one former star of a Law & Order spinoff thinks there’s room for more.

Before Vincent D’onofrio entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Wilson “Kingpin” Fisk on Daredevil (soon to be seen again on Disney+’s Daredevil: Born Again) he starred as Detective Bobby Goren through 141 episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Criminal Intent was canceled following its 10th season in 2011, but now D’Onofrio has made his pitch for the show to return.

Per, D’Onofrio was asked about future seasons of his Law & Order spinoff during an appearance at Nashville’s ICCCon and responded to the notion favorably.
