Law & Order: Criminal Intent: Could There Be Season Eleven?

Law and Order: Criminal IntentLast November, NBC-Universal announced that Law & Order: Criminal Intent wasn’t cancelled but would be returning for just an eight episode final season. While the news that the show was coming to an end was disappointing, many were very happy to hear that beloved characters Detectives Robert Goren (Vincent D’Onofrio) and Alex Eames (Kathryn Erbe) were returning.

Season 10 of Law & Order: Criminal Intent debuted this week and the ratings were very positive. The premiere registered the show’s second-largest total audience (5.1 million) since the series moved to USA. It was also up by 21-35% in the demos and up 43% in total viewers when compared to the season nine premiere.

With such positive numbers, could there be an 11th season after all? In a recent conference call, executive producer Dick Wolf told reporters that he hoped, “enough fans will come out so the powers that be reconsider their decision.”

In an interview with the Futon Critic’s Jim Halterman, executive producer Chris Brancato noted that, “I think we all probably know that Dick Wolf never says never… He cares so deeply and he is engaged in the show in a way that you might not expect somebody who is so successful and been doing it for so long. He loves it! This is his baby, of sorts. Yeah, I think if viewers are enthused about Vincent and Katie coming back I don’t see why it has to be the final season.”

What do you think? Would you like to see the TV series continue for an eleventh season? Would it have to include D’Onofrio and Erbe?

I watch Criminal Intent faithfully. It is the best show on TV. Vincent and Kathryn
are wonderful actors. They are great together. Please don’t take this show off the air. Let there be a season 11.

Please, please renew for another season with Bobby and Eames. The best detective couple in modern times!!! Love the show and will be terribly disappointed if they dont return.

First of all, thank you very much for bringing the show and Vincent and Katheryn back for a much more well deserved ending. Having said that however, we definately hope that it is not the end of CI with Vincent and Katheryn. We also hope that the higher ups learned there lesson with trying to replace perfection. Last but in no way least, “Thank You” Vincent and Katheryn for giving us viewers not only your very best but, your very best done with your whole heart, which this is apparent in every episode. As a result, this leaves us always wanting more. May God’s Blessings always be with you both.

of course!!! bring it back!!!!


Joann August 21, 2011 at 3:53 pm

Yes definitely they both should come back. They have great chemistry together and are by far better than anyone else who they tried to replace them with. It is amazing how ALL of the great shows are being taken off and “so called reality” shows being put on in their place…………….WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS WORLD???

I need Det. Goren in my TV life!! I was thrilled to hear about him coming back/season 10, but disappointed to learn it would be short lived. I can only watch the rerun marathons but so many times! Bring back Goren and Eames!

The show is excellent. Let’s keep it!!!

It’s rare to find outstanding acting these days in a world of stupid reality shows played by no-talent people. I love all of the Law & Order shows and would like to see a little more Criminal Intent.


Bobby July 9, 2011 at 10:07 am

This has been my favorite show since its onset (only with Goren and Eames) and truly hope we get an 11th season. I am almost lip sincing with the re-runs. Br
