Nellie Andreeva at is reporting that Law & Order has been canceled by NBC and will not break any records next season. She does report that Law & Order: Los Angeles will be on the NBC schedule next season.

Law & Order never had the ratings to return, but conventional wisdom was that NBC would bring it back to save face/break the longevity record/make Dick Wolf happy.

Apparently, NBC's Angela Bromstad, contrary to her previous claim, WILL be the person responsible for not having Law & Order break the record.

Update: futoncritic tweets that it's not dead yet.

Update (2): NY Times Brian Stelter tweets with news that L&O named insider says that it's canceled.

Update (3): Now Stelter has people saying discussions continue.
