With six episodes from series one still to be broadcast, ITV1 has ordered a second 13-part run of Law & Order: UK. Based on Dick Wolf’s hit US show, Law & Order: UK stars Bradley Walsh, Jamie Bamber and Freema Agyeman and attracted average audiences of 6.3m when it launched in February.
ITV Director of Drama, Laura Mackie said the new order “demonstrates our commitment to series that have concepts and storylines that can run long term.”
Mackie added: “Audiences clearly loved the first series which featured the cream of British acting talent with gripping “torn from the headlines” storylines and this will again be at the heart of the new series. Kudos and Wolf Films made Law & Order: UK dynamic and fast paced and I’m delighted to be collaborating with them again on the new run.”
