Law & Order

Episodes

22 Episodes 2008 - 2009

Season Nineteen of NBC's hit procedural series "Law & Order" continues to dramatize the experiences of the detectives in the NYPD homicide division, and the DA office responsible for prosecuting the crimes that homicide investigates. This season witnessed no cast changes from the prior year. Returning characters included DA Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston), Lt. Anita Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson), ADA Connie Rubirosa (Alana de la Garza), Detective Kevin Bernard (Anthony Anderson), Detective Cyrus Lupo (Jeremy Sisto), and EADA Michael Cutter (Linus Roache). Cases this season include: two university biologists who return home and find their son and housekeeper dead, a mafia-affiliated truck driver who gets slain, a serial killer who targets homeless men, and ultimately, a charity executive who turns up dead - a case that brings an old friend back into McCoy's life and may force the distinguished DA to prosecute him.
