NBC has been promoting Law & Order: Special Victim’s historic 21st season — which officially made it the longest-running primetime drama — with panels, a special, and big moves on-screen, but they aren’t looking at an end point to the long-running series any time soon.
When asked about the future of the police procedural at the 2020 TCA’s yesterday, this is what NBC Chairman Paul Telegdy had to say:
“You’re talking to the wrong people,” NBC Chairman Paul Telegdy said with a laugh to reporters after his executive session. “That’s Mariska Hargitay and Dick Wolf‘s world. They’ll make that show as long as they have stories to tell.”
Telegdy noted his college-aged daughter is a fan of the show, and it continues to find viewers with a new generation. “It was here before me, it’ll be here long after me; I’m just a visitor, the current Chairman,” he said. “People love that show.”
