NBC Reveals 'Law & Order: Organized Crime' Replacement in Fall Schedule

'Found' will be taking over the 10 p.m. ET slot on Thursdays this fall on NBC.

After it was announced that Law & Order: Organized Crime would be moving to Peacock for Season 5, NBC has found its replacement. According to Deadline, the network has released its schedule for fall 2024, and Law & Order Thursdays is going to look a tad different. Law & Order and Law & Order: SVU will still be kicking off the night at 8 p.m. ET and 9 p.m. ET, respectively, but Organized Crime will no longer be rounding things out.

Found will be taking over for the Christopher Meloni-led drama, switching from its Tuesday slot that will now be held by The Irrational. Since Found is somewhat on the same wavelength as the Law & Orders genre-wise, the move makes sense. Of course, nothing will be able to replace Organized Crime, and it will be strange to not have it follow SVU, but it should be interesting to see how Found does in the timeslot.

Premiering in October 2023, Found stars Shanola Hampton, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Kelli Williams, Arlen Escarpeta, Brett Dalton, Gabrielle Walsh, and Karan Oberoi, and is created by Nkechi Okoro Carroll. It centers on a recovery specialist, Gabi Mosely, who was a kidnapping victim when she was a teenager. As an adult, she has him trapped in her basement as she and her crisis management team working to find missing people who they believe are overlooked by the system. Gabi uses her kidnapper's knowledge to help her solve cases.

Found was an instant success when it premiered, with 10.5 million viewers across all platforms. It was NBC's most success series to launch on Peacock in less than a week of its premiere. NBC gave it an early renewal a month later along with The Irrational. While the move to Thursdays will be a little hard to get used to, the fact that it's happening early on in the series is a good thing. Plus, having it follow Law & Order and SVU could very greatly help improve the ratings even more, so it should definitely be interesting to see how it does.

Meanwhile, something that will really be hard to get used to is having Law & Order: Organized Crime on Peacock. It was a surprise when it was revealed that the series was officially moving to the streamer, but earlier reports revealed that it was the likely move. The show does seem suited for streaming, and with the ability to have longer episodes, that will help with storytelling. Things are going to look different come fall on NBC, but it will be something to look out for.
