Stabler (Christopher Meloni) and Benson (Mariska Hargitay) are again parting ways, but Stabler is not entirely disappearing. 

When Law & Order: Organized Crime season 5 debuts it won't be as a part of Law & Order Thursdays on NBC but instead will be airing on it's new home, Peacock. So what other changes can Law & Order: Organized Crime fans expect? 

Here's everything we know about Law & Order: Organized Crime season 5.

An official premiere date for the new season of Law & Order: Organized Crime has not yet been announced. However, when the new episodes start airing, they’ll be doing so on Peacock. So if you're not yet a subscriber to the streaming platform, you need a subscription in order to watch. Currently, the platform has several options for would-be subscribers.
