Dun dun! Are you ready to watch Law and Order season 21 online? Well, we've got good news: the original Law and Order is back! The crime procedural, which has spawned spinoffs like SVU and Organized Crime, is getting a reboot with Sam Waterston reprising his role as D.A. Jack McCoy.
Law and Order season 21 premieres today (Feb. 24) at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
Law and Order ran for 456 episodes over 20 seasons, nearly beating Gunsmoke's record for longest-running primetime drama. Instead, it was spinoff SVU that nabbed the prize after airing for 23 seasons (and counting).
Waterston returns as McCoy, but there are new cops and prosecutors in the mix. Anthony Anderson plays Detective Kevin Bernard who is newly partnered with Jeffrey Donovan as Detective Frank Cosgrove. Camryn Manheim is their supervisor, Lieutenant Kate Dixon.
In the courtroom, Hugh Dancy plays Executive Assistant District Attorney Nolan Price, with Odelya Halevi as Assistant District Attorney Samantha Maroun.
