Law and Order UK - renewed

From Digital Spy:
ITV1 has commissioned Law & Order: UK for a 13-episode second series, it has announced.

The first series, starring Freema Agyeman, Jamie Bamber and Bradley Walsh, opened its seven-episode run with strong ratings earlier this year. The second half of the series is yet to air.

Series two will see the return of the original cast and will go into production later this year.

"This new commission brings our total order to 26 episodes, which demonstrates our commitment to series that have concepts and storylines that can run long-term," said ITV's Laura Mackie.

"Audiences clearly loved the first series, which featured the cream of British acting talent with gripping 'torn from the headlines' storylines, and this will again be at the heart of the new series."

I was really looking forward to this series. Episode one is actually a story line from the US Law and Order adapted for the UK. I hope they are not going to be doing that for every episode.

So far, every single espisode of the UK version of L&O has been based on a storyline from the US L&O. EVERY SINGLE ONE! Shame on them for their laziness!
