When is ‘Law and Order’ airing in 2022?

More than a decade after it last aired, “Law & Order” is coming back to NBC. It’s joining a slate of high-profile sporting events and dramas.

LOS ANGELES — After a hiatus of more than a decade, the 21st season of “Law and Order” will begin its renewed run in February, roughly five months after NBC announced its return to the airwaves. 

The legendary cops-and-courts police drama’s last season aired in 2010, leaving it tied with “Gunsmoke” for the longest running prime-time TV drama. Series creator Dick Wolf said said its return was his “dream come true.” 

NBC announced Friday that the new season will premiere on Feb. 24, airing on Thursdays at 8 p.m. (7 p.m. Central). While many details on the revival are still under wraps, Variety reports that NBC has cast Jeffrey Donovan — best known for his role as an ex-spy in USA Network’s “Burn Notice” — in a leading role. 

What else is on NBC’s midseason schedule? 

“Law and Order’s” return to the spotlight joins the sixth and final season of “This is Us” — and some of the biggest sporting events of the year. 

NBC will air the Feb. 13 Super Bowl — traditionally the single most-watched television program each year. And while networks usually use that to premiere a new show immediately after the game, NBC will instead jump straight into Winter Olympics coverage (held Feb. 4 through Feb. 20). Variety reports that this is the first time a network has aired both the Super Bowl and Winter Olympics at the same time.
