The Guardian is reporting that ITV has ordered a second series of 13 episodes of Law & Order UK. Based on the US series Law & Order, which was recently renewed for a 20th season by NBC, the UK version follows a similar format with Bradley Walsh, Jamie Bamber, and Harriet Walter representing the "law" and Bill Paterson, Ben Daniels, and Freema Agyeman the "order".
"Audiences clearly loved the first series which featured the cream of British acting talent with gripping 'torn from the headlines' storylines and this will again be at the heart of the new series," said Laura Mackie, ITV Director of Drama. ITV is currently airing the 13 episodes that comprise the first series of the crime drama.
Despite cutbacks in its programming, ITV also recently ordered 4 additional episodes of Inspector Lewis.
