Gripping life-or-death drama. Intelligent dialogue. Ripped-from-the-headlines scenarios. They’re all here in 22 compelling episodes. Annie Parisse and Dennis Farina return for their final season as ADA Alexandra Borgia and Detective Joe Fontana, who take on cases involving a grim sterilization campaign, post-partum psychosis and a death so disturbing to Lieutenant Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson) that she flirts with perjury in the name of justice. Impressive guest stars, including Michael Imperioli reprising his role as Detective Nick Falco, join cast members Jesse L. Martin, Sam Waterston and Fred Thompson. The legacy from esteemed producer Dick Wolf continues with this sixteenth season of television’s longest-running crime series.
