Law & Order‘s Twitter account is trying to entertain during the hiatus, and they just dropped a hilarious Ice-T GIF. The relatable caption reflected on how it feels to re-read your own social media posts.
The gif finds Ice-T looking at his phone first in shock, and then in frustration. Because let’s face it, almost everyone has some cringey stuff they’ve posted.
Ice-T and the rest of the Law & Order: SVU cast will soon start production on the shocking 22nd season of the show. Law & Order: SVU has been on TV since 1999, and still manages to keep fans hooked. Along with actress Mariska Hargitay, Ice-T has been on the show since its early years. His portrayal of Fin Totuola has definitely drawn some viewers in.
Ice-T may even be better known for his music career. His album, Power, went platinum and he’s had several other albums go gold. He also hosts a true-crime documentary, In Ice Cold Blood, which has three seasons so far.
‘Law & Order’ Franchise Has Grown Exponentially
For a while, it felt like Law & Order: SVU was on its own. Many Law & Order spinoffs came and went, but none of them have really stuck. Now, however, Law & Order: SVU is set to air its next season on Thursday nights with two other Law & Order shows.
Law & Order: Organized Crime welcomed back former SVU character Elliot Stabler. SVU and Organized Crime have done multiple crossovers so far, and that’s something fans can expect to keep happening. But the franchise is kicking it up a notch.
Law & Order: For The Defense is a Law & Order show that will try something new. As you could probably guess, For the Defense will offer a different perspective on the criminal justice system, following a team of defense lawyers working to prove the innocence of their clients.
It’s hard to say whether or not For The Defense, which got a straight-to-series order from NBC, will have crossover events with the other two series. If it does, that could mean major heat and conflict for the protagonists of the other shows, who are on the side of the prosecution.
All three series are ripe with storytelling opportunity, so Ice-T and his co-stars will have plenty to keep them busy once production starts. We don’t know much else about For the Defense. Production and casting details have not been released yet.
If you’re worried the seasons will be shorter like they were last year, it’s unlikely. Networks are trying to return back to their original broadcast schedules that were in place before the COVID-19 pandemic hurt scheduling and filming. There’ll be plenty of episodes to keep viewers entertained next year.
