Good news for Mr. Dick Wolf - NBC has renewed Law Order: SVU for it's 11th season. Talks are still under way for the return of Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay. Word is they're looking for a pay raise from their current $350,000 per episode. While the other two L&O franchises have weathered multiple cast changes popular opinion seems to be SVU couldn't survive without the two. Perhaps those cast changes are why Law & Order: CI is now on USA and Law & Order sits on the bubble at the end of each season.
On that note, Law & Order: Criminal Intent returns this weekend on USA (which has been doing very well this year) and Variety also reported that NBC is still in talks to renew the original Law & Order for it's 20th season. Word is, though, that it may be a shortened one with only about 16 episodes.
