After 20 seasons, NBC has announced that it is not renewing Law & Order.

Some trivia:

- Law & Order was referred to in the industry as the mother ship, to distinguish it from spinoffs such as Law & Order SVU (12 seasons) and Law & Order Criminal Intent (9 seasons). Those spinoffs will continue.

- Had Law & Order The Mother Ship been renewed, it would have become the longest running scripted drama show. It will now remained tied with Gunsmoke.

- There is a further spinoff in the US, Law & Order Los Angeles.

-  I like the comment by one person on YouTube in reference to the Chung Chung sound used in the Law & Order episodes:  "If  I was a judge I would have this sound available by a button under the bench...Guilty...Doink...Doink...!"
