Fans feared that NBC could cancel Law & Order: Organized Crime after never announcing a renewal. However, Peacock jumped in and saved the show, but this means it will move off of NBC, and now fans are worried that the beloved franchise crossovers with Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni will stop as well.

However, Mariska Hargitay has said she still plans to take part in crossovers despite the move of Organized Crime to Peacock.

Mariska Hargitay Talks Law & Order Crossovers In Future

Mariska Hargitay has a lot of say when it comes to Law & Order. While she couldn’t stop a co-star from being fired from the show, she does have a lot to say about her character and the direction of the long-running series. With that in mind, she said she still plans crossovers to reunite Stabler and Olivia.

While Organized Crime is moving to Peacok, it is still under the same company as NBC, so it is still a possibility. “I’m actually planning on it,” Mariska said. “I met his showrunner. They want us together, and Chris and I were talking about it, and it’s time.”

This should also alleviate some concern that Organized Crime might kill off Stabler thanks to the move. It makes little sense that the show would move to streaming and eliminate the character that fans tuned into the show to see in the first place. If Mariska said that the showrunner wants the crossover to happen, there is no fear that Stabler will die.

It also means that Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime should remain locked at the hip, even with the Peacock move.

Why Is Law & Order: Organized Crime Moving To Peacock?

Many fans might not like Law & Order: Organized Crime moving to Peacock since that is a streaming service that costs money to subscribe to. However, it is one of the most affordable streaming services. Plus, this keeps NBC from canceling it completely.

It is also a good place for the show to end up. Unlike the other Law & Order shows, which are weekly procedurals, Organized Crime is a show with one story in each season, and that plays out better on streaming than it does on network television.

It also ensures that the network’s standards & practices division won’t censor the show. Organized Crime is a lot more violent than the other shows, and this allows it to really show why it is so different than its predecessors. As for the cost, Peacock is only $5.99 a month (or $59.99 a year at a discount). This includes ads, but so does network television.

Do you hope to see more crossovers between Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime despite the move of the latter to Peacock? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
