3. What Is 'law & Order: Organized Crime' About?

Organized Crime will focus on Elliot Stabler as he returns to the NYPD as the head of the organized crime division. This might surprise some Law & Order fans, since Stabler retired from the police force in season 13. Nevertheless, the spin-off will follow the character as he tries to navigate the department’s ever-changing protocol.

According to NBC’s official statement, “The city and police department have changed dramatically in the decade he’s been away, and he must adapt to a criminal justice system in the midst of its own moment of reckoning. Throughout the series, we will follow Stabler’s journey to find absolution and rebuild his life, while leading a new elite task force that is taking apart the city’s most powerful criminal syndicates one by one.”
