'Law & Order: UK' back for Season 2

ITV orders 13 additional episodes of crime drama

U.K.'s broadcaster ITV has ordered a second season of "Law & Order: UK," the British version of Dick Wolf's long-running crime drama.

ITV picked up 13 additional episodes from "L&O: UK" starring Bradley Walsh, Jamie Bamber and Freema Agyeman.

The series, produced by Kudos Films and Television, Wolf Films and NBC Universal, premiered in February with a seven-episode run, which averaged 6.3 million viewers and a 25% audience.

The remaining six episodes of the show's first season will be aired at a later date, ITV said.

"This is a great day for the 'Law & Order brand," Wolf said. "On the heels of the original 'Law & Order' tying 'Gunsmoke's' all time drama series record of 20 years, and 'Law & Order: SVU's' renewal for Season 11, its wonderful to have pick ups on both sides of the Atlantic."

Wolf executive produces "L&O: UK" with Kudos' Jane Featherstone, Andrew Woodhead and Stephen Garrett.
