Christopher Meloni is set to make his return uring the season 22 premiere of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, nearly 10 years after he left.
“It’s pretty clear that Elliot will be in the SVU season opener. I think that much I know,” showrunner Warren Leight said during a recent episode of SVU‘s behind-the-scenes podcast.
Christopher will reprise his role as the iconic detective Stabler for the episode to help launch his own spinoff series. The still-untitled show will follow Stabler as he leads the organized crime division of the NYPD. It’s already received a 13-episode order.
Warren Leight said that due to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s unclear when the new season will start shooting.
