“Law & Order: Los Angeles” has been missing in action on the NBC roster due to the recent casting shuffle Dick Wolf put into place. He got rid of Skeet Ulrich, Regina Hall, and Megan Boone, switched around the roles of Alfred Molina and Terrence Howard, and added Alana de la Garza. Did you catch all that? According to EW, the network will bring the spin-off back into the fold next month when it returns with its new line up.
With Ulrich’s character Rex Winters out, Molina, who previously played the role of ADA Ricardo Morales will make the move to detective where he’ll take Winter’s place. Howard’s Jonah Dekker will be brought on as a full time ADA and he’ll be joined by de la Garza who’ll work by his side. The actress previously appeared on the defunct “Law & Order” originator.
“We are pleased to welcome Law & Order: Los Angeles back to NBC’s regular lineup,” said Bob Greenblatt, NBC entertainment chairman. “Dick Wolf and his team have made some exciting creative changes and we can’t wait to re-introduce the show to audiences.”
The revamped “Law and Order” Los Angeles” will return to NBC on April April 11 (at 9 p.m. the first week, at 10 p.m. the week after).
When LOLA returns, will you be watching? Do you think the show should be cancelled?
