Law and Order: Criminal Intent

About the Show

"Law & Order: Criminal Intent," produced by Wolf Films and Universal Cable Productions, created and executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Dick Wolf, was developed by Rene Balcer. Shot entirely in and around New York City, the third installment of the "Law & Order" franchise takes viewers deep into the minds of its criminals while following the intense psychological approaches the Major Case Squad uses to solve its crimes.

After a triumphant eight-season run, Emmy nominee Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe and Eric Bogosian say goodbye to "Law & Order: Criminal Intent." The two-part season opener will showcase the brilliant partnership between Detectives Goren & Eames as they, along with Detectives Nichols and Stevens, unravel a case with devastating consequences for Captain Ross.

SAG Award nominee Saffron Burrows ("Boston Legal," "Troy") joins the cast as Detective Serena Stevens, a highly educated, worldly single parent with a broad range of life experiences to draw upon in solving even the toughest of cases. Teamed with Detective Zach Nichols (Jeff Goldblum), the two of them create a partnership of challenging intellect and street-smart savvy.

Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio joins the cast as Captain Zoe Callas who comes to MCS from Internal Affairs, where she honed the pragmatic style and political skillfulness that make her a standout captain. She takes over the role of Captain of the Major Case Squad replacing Eric Bogosian's character Danny Ross. Mastrantonio was an Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee in the best supporting actress category for the role of Carmen, opposite Tom Cruise and Paul Newman in the film "The Color of Money" directed by Martin Scorsese.

Academy Award and Emmy nominee Jeff Goldblum ("Adam Resurrected," "Jurassic Park") returns for season nine as Detective Zach Nichols, insightful and powerfully motivated to uncover the darkest side of human nature. Nichols uses his keen intelligence and off beat charm to reveal the criminal intent behind his homicide cases.

A ratings powerhouse, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" was second only to fellow USA show "In Plain Sight" Sundays in 2009 among total basic cable viewers. Guest stars for season nine include Tracy Pollan, Dan Lauria, Ralph Macchio, Dan Butler and William Mapother.

"Law & Order: Criminal Intent" is a Wolf Films production in association with Universal Cable Productions. Dick Wolf, Peter Jankowski and Walon Green are executive producers with Green also serving as writer and showrunner.

I have been teaching English, public speaking and drama for 27 years. I'll retire soon and my goal is to land the part of a judge on Law and Order. I have no idea how I'll do it, but after I'm finished putting my own children through college and directing my 50th high school show, I'll have the rest of my life to figure it out. Please keep the shows coming, because I'm on my way.
