Law & Order Season 2 Episodes

22 Episodes 1991 - 1992

Dick Wolf's classic American procedural series "Law & Order" continues its saga of the NYPD homicide detectives who investigate crimes, and the District Attorneys office that prosecutes them, in Season Two of the series. Returning this season are Det. Logan (Chris Noth), Capt. Cragen (Dann Florek), A.D.A.s Ben Stone (Michael Moriarty) and Paul Robinette (Richard Brooks), and DA Adam Schiff (Steven Hill), while newly arrived is Sgt. Phil Cerreta (Paul Sorvino). This season begins on a tense note, with an act of violence against one of the officers, and a subsequent NYPD investigation; meanwhile, Logan and Cerreta adjust to their new partnership. Stories this season include an investigation of a pornographer's ties to a starlet's overdose, a brownstone renovation that turns up the body of a boy who has been missing for decades, Stone's courtroom reunion with an old nemesis as he tries to pin multiple homicides on a hit man, the arrest of a slumlord whose policies may have killed an infant, and much more.
