According to a report in Deadline, NBC will cancel the long-running crime drama “Law & Order.”

The drama, which was trying to become the longest running drama on television (Gunsmoke) apparently will end after its 20th season.

NBC will, however, renew “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” and is expected to pick up a new spinoff called “Law & Order: Los Angeles.”

“Law & Order” was a groundbreaking cop drama which paved the way for shows like “CSI” and “NCIS.”
