This is not an April Fools joke!
NBC has set April 1st for the long awaited reunion of Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler.
“Law and Order: Organized Crime” starring Christopher Meloni will debut with a “Law and Order: SVU” crossover on that fateful day.
The two-hour event will begin with a new episode of “SVU” at 9 p.m. ET, followed by the debut of “Organized Crime” at 10. The crossover will reunite Meloni and “SVU” star Mariska Hargitay onscreen for the first time since Meloni departed “SVU” after the show’s 12th season in 2011.
The new series sees Stabler return to the NYPD to battle organized crime after a devastating personal loss– maybe his wife is dead, which will open up romantic possibilities. Stabler will aim to rebuild his life as part of a new elite task force that is taking apart the city’s most powerful criminal syndicates one by one.
That Meloni is back is great news for “SVU” fans. It’s also good news for him. When he was on the show he was in constant contract re-negotiations and was always unhappy with how NBC and Dick Wolf’s company remunerated him. But time has a way of healing everything.
Now let’s get Tamara Tunie back on the show more!
