ITV Brings More “Law & Order: UK”

Even more Law & Order good news today: British broadcaster ITV has asked for thirteen more episodes of the superb UK incarnation.

They have given the green light to a fourth series of the British spinoff, which features Jamie Bamber, Bradley Walsh, Freema Agyeman and Ben Daniels (pictured). Harriet Walter and Bill Paterson also star. Law & Order: UK is currently airing its third series, with the final episode to screen tomorrow in the UK and a week from tomorrow in Canada. It began its run on BBC America on October 3.

In a press release, ITV also reveals that Juliet Stevenson and Nicola Walker, both of the hit British series Spooks, will guest star in the fourth series. The long-running Spooks is produced by Kudos Film and Television, which is also behind Law & Order: UK, alongside Dick Wolf and his Wolf Films brand.

Laura Mackie, ITV’s Director of Drama, is quoted as saying: “Law & Order: UK is continuing to deliver audiences with its top flight acting and ‘ripped from the headlines’ storylines that captivate and entertain.”

It’s not yet known when American audiences will see these episodes. BBC America has only aired three episodes of the first series, and will air the second immediately thereafter, but has not made any statement regarding any episodes beyond that. Still, American fans of Law & Order: UK can now enjoy the idea that there will be thirteen more episodes of this impressive, engrossing crime drama.

Law & Order: UK airs Fridays at 9 PM ET/PT on BBC America, and recurs throughout the week.
