Law & Order: Los Angeles creator Dick Wolf has praised the new revamped version of the show.

The crime drama, which previously axed three original cast members, will return from a four-month hiatus on Monday night.

Discussing the revamp in a recent conference call, Wolf said: "I'd almost call it Law & Order: LA 2.0. [The first episode back is] better than anything we did in the first 13. Frankly, the proof is in the pudding."

He also suggested that the addition of new cast member Alana De La Garza, reprising her role of ADA Connie Rubirosa from the original Law & Order, could attract fans of the parent series to the spinoff.

"[She's] well-loved by the mothership audience," he said. "The opportunity to put her in was too good to pass up."

Wolf recently defended the decision to axe original Law & Order: Los Angeles star Skeet Ulrich, insisting that the process was "not something I enjoyed".

The series returns to NBC on Monday at 9/8c.
