Chris, I just read the article. When they mention that he signed a two-year deal, does that mean he'll only be show runner for season 18 and a possible season 19?

In a way, yes. While it doesn't guarantee a 19th season, it's still a good sign that they're willing to have a two year relationship with him.

yeah, if the show is cancelled obviously he won't get two years but I guess they're planning to get a season 19? (could also be that he would only sign it if it was for 2 years and not 1, who knows :D)

I guess René Balcer turned it down?

@gahks - he could have been unavailable! I would love to think he was waiting for Law & Order to resurrect but I don't think that will be happening any time soon...
