‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ Drops Epic Behind Scenes Pic of Christopher Meloni and ‘Pretty Best Friends’

by Anna Dunn

Law & Order: Organized Crime‘s Instagram isn’t above the occasional meme reference. The account has been posting fun behind-the-scenes photos of the cast and crew during the hiatus. Organized Crime is expected to come back this fall on NBC. It’ll air on Thursdays with Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: For The Defense.

For now, fans will just have to sit back and enjoy the occasional Instagram update from the show.

“Three pretty best friends,” the caption of this one says.

The caption is a reference to a video of a man saying that he’s “never seen two pretty best friends” that went viral last year. This photo shows off three in the form of Danielle Mone Truitt, Chris Meloni, and Ainsley Sieger posing for a goofy behind-the-scenes pic. All three play pivotal roles on the show.

“The best trio to date,” one fan said.

“Love this team,” another person commented.

‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’ Protagonists Are Up Against a Formiddable Bad Guy

Law & Order: Organized Crime found Elliot Stabler (Chris Meloni) trying to hunt down the man responsible for the death of his wife. The man in question is Richard Wheatley (Dylan McDermott). Wheatley is a serious opponent to Stabler. To be honest, he’s a perfect voil. McDermott wholeheartedly agrees.

“Stabler definitely needs a foe, a formidable foe. Otherwise, the show wouldn’t work. Because of that kind of conflict, that standoff is so necessary on a show like this. So, you have to have somebody who can take him on, and I think that Richard can take on Stabler. In fact, he looks forward to it,” the actor told TV Line.

McDermott also says that he and Meloni work well together. They both studied the same acting method, and feel confident trusting each other with heavier scenes. While there will definitely be more bad guys to face next season, Wheatley still isn’t taken care of, so we’ll likely see McDermott back again in season 2.

But season two will also be in three separate arcs. Executive producer Dick Wolf has said that the 24 episode season will be broken up into eight episode storylines, each with a villain based on a different mafia movie.

The first season of Law & Order: Organized Crime was short due to COVID-19. It’ll be nice for fans to have their first full season packed full of action.

Law & Order: Organized Crime will also likely crossover with Law & Order: SVU more. So not only will you get more of Elliot Stabler with season 2, but you’ll also probably see him in Law & Order: SVU‘s 23rd season. Whatever production has in store for fans, this fall is looking packed full of fan-favorite shows.
