Whether or not NBC renews Law & Order for a record-breaking 21st season – which would beat Gunsmoke‘s record of 20 seasons (though not beating its number of episodes) – one of the stars won’t be back.

S. Epatha Merkerson, who plays Lt. Van Buren, has decided to leave the show after this season.  The Emmy-winning actress has been on the show for 16 seasons, and she is moving on to other projects.

Click here for an interview with her, where she explains her decision and how Dick Wolf felt about it.
