Law and Order Logo

Law & Order, the iconic police procedural and crime drama, is back for its 22nd season. After its initial cancellation after the 20-season run on NBC in 2010, this show was picked up again by NBC to be revived, delighting fans worldwide. Season 21 first aired on February 24, 2022, and within three months, was renewed for another season which first premiered on September 22, 2022. The first two episodes have been a thrill of a ride bringing forth the classic Law and Order charm to the screen that viewers know it for.

There is a reason why the Law and Order franchise is so all-encompassing and popular. The current Law and Order series airings are Law and Order, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, and Law and Order: Organised Crime. Past series have included Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Law & Order: Trial by Jury, Law & Order: LA, Law & Order True Crime, and Law & Order: For the Defense,

which was abandoned before it could air. Dick Wolf is the creator of the show, while Wolf Entertainment is the producer airing the entire show on NBC. There have been 1,256 episodes of the Law & Order franchise as of September 29, 2022, making it one of the mammoths of American crime procedurals.

Season 22 follows the classic Law and Order setup, where the first half of the episode depicts the crime and follows the police around on their investigative work, while the second half of the episode takes place in the courtroom where the victims are brought to justice, and the criminals are convicted.

The show believes that the police who investigate crimes and the district attorneys who prosecute offenders are two distinct but equally significant entities that speak for the people in the criminal justice system.

Law & Order Season 22 Episode 3 Spoilers

The previous episode of Law & Order followed Frank Cosgrove and Jalen Shaw as they investigated the murder of a politician’s daughter in an apparent mugging. The well-known actor Jeffrey Donovan, who portrayed Robert F. Kennedy in Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar, appeared in the films Hitch, Believe in Me, Changeling, and Come Early Morning (2011) plays Frank Cosgrove while Jalen Shaw is played by Mehcad Brooks, who portrayed James Olsen in the Supergirl television series on CBS and The CW.

Law & Order Season 22 Episode 3 is entitled ‘Vicious Cycle’ and follows the police duo Frank Cosgrove and Jalen Shaw as they investigate the seemingly impossible murder of a prominent fashion designer on the night of his boutique’s opening. This case is a tough one to crack as there seems to be absolutely no witness to the crime and very little evidence to pinpoint the killer and bring the victim to justice.

Samantha Maroun, an assistant district attorney currently working for the Manhattan district attorney’s office, is taken aback when she is asked to testify in court since the defense has listed her as a witness. Odelya Halevi, recognized for her work in the show Why Women Kill (2019) and Black Adam (2022), plays the role of the character.
