    Here's a list of characters who were part of the original cast of LAW & ORDER, when it debuted on September 13, 1990:

    Max Greevey

    Mike Logan

    Donald Cragen

    Benjamin Stone

    Paul Robinette

    Adam Schiff

    Can anyone tell me how many characters from L&O's very first season are still on the show today?

    Yeah, Steven Hill (aka Adam Schiff) left at the end of Season 10; the other original cast members either departed after Season 1 or somewhere before Season 7.

    Hey HeroesBoy, any reason why you're going into every forum asking this question? You can find this information elsewhere online.

    The only one left on any Law & Order show is Cragen.

    The OP is full of it just by watching an episode one Wednesday he knows none of the original cast is still on the show. Looks like someone went on a flooding run for their own bizarre purposes.

    You're right, DanHarr. None from the original cast is still on the original series today.

    Max Greevey (George Dzundza) was the first to leave, having been killed off at the beginning of season 2.

    Paul Robinette (Richard Brooks) and Donald Cragen (Dann Florek) both left after season 3, although Robinette had since made a few guest appearances as a defense attorney, while Cragen can now be seen on "SVU."

    Benjamin Stone (Michael Moriarty) was written off at the end of season 4.

    Mike Logan (Chris Noth) departed after season 5, only to be resurfaced on "Criminal Intent" before leaving for good in 2008.

    And Adam Schiff (Steven Hill) was written off after season 10.

    So the longest-serving characters on L&O now are Anita Van Buren (S. Epatha Merkerson), who was first introduced in season 4, and Jack McCoy (Sam Waterston), who debuted during season 5.

    Despite numerous cast changes, L&O is still getting pretty much better these days.

    So if you knew it, why did you come here and ask the question!? Thread closed.
