"Law & Order" Returns to NBC

jsisto.jpgJack is back! That's right, "Law & Order" returns to NBC this January with District Attorney Jack McCoy and several new faces.

The flagship series will have its 18th season premiere on January 2 with a two-hour event, from 9 to 11 p.m. This marks the show's return to the day and timeslot where it thrived for several years. According to The Futon Critic, the show has promoted Jack McCoy, played by Sam Waterston, to District Attorney, filling the hole left by previous DA Arthur Branch. (In reality, actor Fred Thompson, who played Branch, left the show to run for President.)

This season, Jesse Martin will gain a new partner and the DA office will also see a new face. Jeremy Sisto, who last starred on NBC's failed show "Kidnapped," will play Martin's new partner, Detective Cyrus Lupo. Filling McCoy's spot is Chief ADA Michael Cutter, played by Linus Roache.

And there's still more "L&O" news! Since the writers strike is still in full swing, the peacock network will bring back "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" starting Wednesday, January 9 at 9 p.m. Regular "L&O" will follow the show, thus creating "Law & Order" Wednesdays! "Criminal Intent" stars Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe and Chris Noth as detectives in the Major Case Squad. The show moved to USA before the new season began, and episodes that have already run on that network will air again on NBC. --Chris Sardelli
