One of the lead detectives in the series, Elliot Stabler, was also a major character in the original series, Law & Order: SVU.
The first season of Organized Crime followed Stabler as he pursued the gangster Richard Wheatley, who is eventually apprehended.
The 22-part season began airing in the US in September 2021 and the season finale was released this month - but now the season is coming to the UK via Sky.
What is the plot of Law & Order: Organized Crime season 2?
Following the events of season one in which Stabler dismantled Wheatley’s drug empire, the detective takes on another operation.
This time Stabler must infiltrate a notorious Albanian crime family that is preparing to take over the New York City cocaine trade.
Whilst Stabler is busy attempting to stop gang expansion, Wheatley is vying to get out of jail and restore his crime empire.
