The longest-running crime series and second longest-running drama series in television history just keeps getting better. Season 16 follows Detectives Fontana (Dennis Farina) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) as they investigate New York crimes and hand off cases to Executive A.D.A. Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston) and A.D.A. Alexandra Borgia (Annie Parisse).
This season's "ripped from the headlines" cases include everything from child abduction, a deathbed confession that re-opens a cold case and a woman on life support whose husband is killed to a serial killer targeting single moms and a vigilante killing illegal immigrants. Look for the return of Law & Order veteran Richard Brooks as A.D.A. Paul Robinette. Also included is a special crossover episode with "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," featuring Mariska Hargitay and Ice-T.
S. Epatha Merkerson and Fred Dalton Thompson also star.
