The lineup was:

Jerry Orbach, Jesse L. Martin, Sam Waterston, Elisabeth R?hm

Mr. Orbach died (R.I.P.) and was replaced by Dennis Farina (“Fontana”).

Elisabeth R?hm was replaced by Annie Parisse (“Borgia”)

Martin’s character (“Green”) seems to have caught a bullet and (we hope!) may survive, but has been replaced by Michael Imperioli (of “The Sopranos” fame) who portrays Det. Falco.

Hang on here
