Law & Order
Season 21
Nearly 12 years after going off the air, the Emmy-winning Law & Order returns with series stars Sam Waterston (Jack McCoy) and Anthony Anderson (Detective Kevin Bernard) reprising their original roles. Jeffrey Donovan, Camryn Manheim, Hugh Dancy and Odelya Halevi join the reboot, with other familiar faces set to appear. “I think we definitely want to find ways to bring back several of our alumni,” showrunner Rick Eid says. But the revival will continue where the show left off in 2010, with the classic format that explores two separate, yet equally important groups: “The police who investigate crimes and the district attorneys who prosecute the offenders.”
