In season 22, Law & Order will attempt to overturn Roe v Wade's abortion legislation ...

In its next season, Law & Order, NBC's abortion program, is expected to confront the overturning of Roe v Wade's abortion legislation.

Rick Eid, the showrunner for Law & Order, described it as a "really exciting episode that speaks directly to the Supreme Court's recent overturning of Roe v. Wade, which I believe is really interesting."

According to the showrunner, the new series will continue to research societal and cultural issues based on current headline news.

Eid said the episodes "try to investigate what's happening in society and foster some level of cultural conversation."

Season 22 will attempt to investigate these issues, but it will also involve more character development and "maybe a little more action at times."

"It's not a bad past, it's more a woman past," said Hugh Dancy's ADA Nolan Price.

Eid released some photos of the fast-approaching major series crossover that includes the original Law & Order and the spinoff series, Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime.

"Unlike most network television crossovers that are handoffs, [which sees] one show hand it off to the next, this one is much more integrated," said Eid.

"I think we're always going to be doing things that are a little out of the box that elevate our reputation and increase interest in our programs," he said of the crossover event.

Law & Order: SVU is available on NBC in the United States every Thursday. It is available on Sky Witness in the United Kingdom, with some episodes available on NOW.
