NBC is staying on Dick Wolf’s good side. The network announced today that it has renewed veteran series Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for an 18th season, while renewing frosh Chicago Med for a second. Neither doesn’t come as much of a surprise since both have been doing well for the Peacock network.
In its 17th season currently, SVU has hit averaged a 1.7 in the 18-49 and around 7 million viewers a week. Chicago Med has been averaging a 1.9 in the 18-49 and around 8 million viewers per week. The renewal keeps all four of Wolf’s shows on NBC next year, with the other Chicago series being renewed back in November
