While "Law & Order" fans won't have an entire night of NBC primetime programming to themselves this fall with the news that the network wasn't moving ahead on Dick Wolf and Carol Mendelsohn's recently announced spinoff For The Defense (with the James Spader-starring The Blacklist moving to Thursdays in its place), there is a major silver lining to look forward to. After an impressive first-season run, Christopher Meloni's Elliot Stabler and the team from Law & Order: Organized Crime are coming back for a second season. And to help gets fans excited for what's to come before its September 23rd return, Meloni's sharing a video from the set as the work is about to get underway.
