Despite declining ratings, Law & Order: SVU remains one of NBC’s top-rated TV series. Will NBC cancel or renew it for a 20th season? The show is still performing well so I’m sure it will be renewed. Additionally, when shows are approaching a season which ends in a zero (or a five), there’s a certain cachet to picking up that season. I predict this show will easily snag a 20th season. Meanwhile, I’ll keep an eye on the ratings and will update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free updates on any Law & Order: SVU cancellation or renewal news.
