(On September 28, 2021, after an 11-year hiatus, NBC announced that the series would be revived for a 21st season, which premiered on February 24, 2022)

(Theme of Law & Order score by Mike Post)


About the iconic "The Clang", as Post refers to it, David Allen said:
• "The tone moves the viewer from scene to scene, jumping forward in time with all the importance and immediacy of a judge's gavel - which is exactly what Post was aiming for when he created it. While reminiscent of a jail door slamming..."

The sound has become so associated with the Law & Order brand that it was also carried over to other series of the franchise.
