Law and Order fans are angry as Jeffrey Donovan leaves show prior to new season

Law & Order: Cutter questions alleged cop killer in season 20

Jeffrey Donovan has been a massive hit on Law and Order since he joined for Season 21 in 2021, playing Detective Frank Cosgrove.

Now, People have confirmed that Jeffrey will not be returning for Season 23, which is due to debut sometime in 2024.

Jeffrey has not publicly commented on his exit so far, with his exit following Anthony Anderson leaving the series as Detective Kevin Bernard after Season 21.

The show is expected to start production later this month, leaving fans to share their anguish over Jeffrey’s exit on X, formerly known as Twitter.

@Through_Prism said: “Find it strange Jeffrey Donovan is leaving Law & Order. He’s a good actor that hasn’t had that many opportunities to show off so I wonder why he’s left a safe source of income.”

@JohnGOcala added: “If #JeffreyDonovan isn’t returning to @lawandordertv I’m not either.”

@FaithSuzy1 commented: “I will miss Jeffrey Donovan in Law and Order season 23.”

Though his time on Law and Order has come to an end, Jeffrey was no stranger to the TV courtroom.

He starred in the 2000s crime series Burn Notice as the sarcastic Michael Weston and appeared as a defense attorney in Netflix’s Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.

The long-running series debuted in 1990 but was canceled in 2010 by NBC, which then debuted a new spin-off Law & Order: Los Angeles.

Having run successful spin-offs, NBC made the surprising announcement that the original Law and Order would return in September 2021.

The 22nd season saw NBC pull off an impressive and ambitious crossover premiere, which intertwined the plots of Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Law & Order: Organized Crime into a three-hour block.

NBC renewed all three of the Law & Order shows, along with all of Dick Wolf’s Chicago franchise shows, back in April, just one month before the writers strike.
