NBC at TCA: Bob Greenblatt on the Future of LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT

July 13, 2014 by  

For LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT fans, the semi-late renewal of the series came as a bit of a stress — especially since the mothership was abruptly canceled in 2010 with no proper resolution/intended series finale.

After NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt participated in the NBC exec session during the Television Critics Association press tour, I asked him how important it was to end the franchise — eventually — on the right note.

“I think it’s always important to end these franchises [on a proper note],” Greenblatt told reporters. “And we try to do that. I think we’re doing that with PARKS AND REC, we’re doing it with PARENTHOOD, we did it with 30 ROCK. You can’t always do it, but I think a show like that — look, I didn’t know if it would last beyond another year when I arrived. It’s one of the oldest shows on television, and I think it’s still one of the best: it grew 20 percent last year. And [series star] Mariska [Hargitay] still wanted to do it. They’re still telling great stories.”

But how long will the show go on?

“I don’t know,” he admitted. “We take it one year at a time.”

Do you hope that SVU lives beyond season 16?
