"Law & Order: Criminal Intent" is over at season 10 -- or is it?

The tenth, eight-episode season of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" will be its last, USA network and Dick Wolf announced Tuesday.

Or will it?

Vincent D'Onofrio, who played Det. Robert Goren for eight seasons, will be back for the 10th and last season, the two parties said.

Or, did they?

"The plan is for this to be the series finale, but with a Dick Wolf franchise, one really never knows until it's over," USA original programming president Jeff Wachtel said in Tuesday's announcement.

"Only time will tell if this is a fond farewell or a renaissance for Detective Robert Goren but everyone both here and in New York is ecstatic about going back to work on a show that's a passion for all of us. Signed, Bret Favre," added Dick Wolf while, we assume, grinning like the Cheshire Cat.

Universal Cable Productions, the NBC Universal-owned stuio that co-produces "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" with Wolf Films, has given a pilot commitment for a new project with Wolf Films. That's for suresies.
