We'll be VERY curious to see if these two will be able to replace the magic between the two leads that made this show so great to begin with!
As we've reported, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as we know it will be gone forever after its upcoming thirteenth season, as Christopher Meloni has left the police procedural, and Mariska Hargitay has taken a reduced role for one final year, which has left the door open for two new leads to come in.
And after a grueling search, it appears the final ruling is in:

Dick Wolf has announced that Law & Order is dead and gone.
"I can confirm that it has moved into the history books. We exhausted every effort."
Here’s more from Wolf on the subject:
"There are so many factors that entered into the network's decision. Everything in life is a negotiation. In 25 years on air at NBC, we never failed to make a deal when there was a deal to be made."
At least we can find solace in the fact that Law and Order: Los Angeles is well on its way. The show will star big-screen talent Alfred Molina and Terrence Howard.
Doctor Octopus from Spider Man 2 and pre-Don Cheadle replacement Col. Rhodes from Iron Man? Certainly intriguing news.
Good Night, Sweet Law and Order; and flights of NBC execs sing thee to thy rest.

What would everyone do if there weren't at least three versions of this series on TV at once?!
Not only are Law & Order and its companions, Special Victims Unit and Criminal Intent, pretty much set to be renewed for another year - it looks like they'll be getting another crime drama friend: Law & Order: Los Angeles!
Police Procedural mastermind Dick Wolf is collaborating on the new series with Brotherhood creator Blake Masters, and NBC has already picked up 13 episodes for next fall!
Although we only really dig our beloved Detective Duo Benson and Stabler on SVU, maybe lightning will strike twice and the El Lay edition will be especially awesome!
What do U think?? Will U watch Law & Order: El Lay next season??
