After the announcement from a few weeks ago that original star Vincent D'Onofrio was headed back to Law & Order: Criminal Intent for one final season that will bring the curtain down on its decade-long run, this one may have seemed like a foregone conclusion, but I thought it worth noting here anyway.  As expected, D'Onofrio's Det. Bobby Goren will again be joined by Kathryn Erbe as senior partner Alexandra Eames for the series' last eight episodes.  Quoth USA honcho Jeff Wachtel to Deadline, "We now have the definitive team for the ultimate season of this phenomenal show."

While I'm sad to see Criminal Intent going away, as I think it could still potentially have gone on for several more seasons had Jeff Goldblum not abruptly bolted, I'm glad to know that USA and Universal have sprung to have it go out in style by bringing back the original (and still most popular) detective pairing.  Now all they need is to bring back Jamey Sheridan's Captain Deakins from the forced-retirement the character underwent, and Courtney B. Vance's DA Ron Carver from whatever hole he disappeared into following the series' fifth season.

It is sad to see this TV show finally end after a decade. Vincent's one of my favorite characters. I can't wait to see his last appearance.

I agree. Law and Order has always been my favorite TV series. It is sad to see them go. The characters here are the ones who inspired me to become a criminal lawyer san diego.

Learning or watching law and order is a great way to get a new information especially nowadays. It is very essential to learn at-least basic law rules.
