‘Law & Order’: How, When to Watch ‘SVU’ & ‘Organized Crime’ Season Finales

by Joe Rutland

OK “Law & Order” show fans, here’s the information you’ve been waiting for around the season finales for “SVU” and “Organized Crime.”

Just like all season long, “SVU” will lead off the two-show combination on Thursday at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central, on NBC. “Organized Crime” airs at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central. If you happen to miss Thursday night’s shows, then you can catch them on Friday on Peacock.

Take a look at this teaser below for both shows’ season finales.

Chris Meloni, Mariska Hargitay Appear In Both ‘Law & Order’ Shows

Before you ask, yes, Chris Meloni, who has been back as Elliot Stabler on “Law & Order: Organized Crime” this season, will be on the “SVU” season finale. Cinemablend says the episode, called “Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing,” will have a Stabler appearance. It is not being labeled as a “crossover” appearance, though.

What is Stabler doing over on his old show? Well, tune in for the “SVU” season finale. He’ll appear with Mariska Hargitay, who plays Olivia Benson, as the show wraps up its 22nd season on NBC.

Obviously, it makes sense for Hargitay to appear on the first-season finale of “Organized Crime.” She does as Benson but, again, there’s not much detail around it.

The episode is titled “Everyone Takes A Beating Sometimes.” Cinemablend also says there might be some hints toward the always-present romantic tension between Benson and Stabler. Again, though, fans of these two “Law & Order” shows will have to tune in Thursday night and find out how they end their seasons.

Remember, “Law & Order: SVU” airs at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central, on NBC. “Law & Order: Organized Crime” follows at 10 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central. Catch the shows’ finales again on Friday on Peacock.

Show Creator Dick Wolf Getting More Time From NBC For New Show

Dick Wolf is the creative mind behind the “Law & Order” brand. While the original “Law & Order” show ended in 2010, the brand itself has continued thanks to other shows.

Yes, those include “SVU” and “Organized Crime.” Wolf has a new one coming out next season, “Law & Order: For the Defense.”

He talked about future storylines of those shows with The Wrap last month.

“To use the Campbell’s comparison, it’s my hope that viewers are comfortable with the brand,” Wolf told Deadline. “And they know no matter what type of soup they are buying, or show they are watching, they know they are getting a high-quality product.”

Wolf has been producing the series since 1990. It appears that as long as those shows work for NBC, then he will have a spot in the network lineup.
