“He’s back,” said actor Christopher Meloni about his character on his Facebook.
It is part of the five-year, nine-digit, multi-platform agreement signed with Universal Television last month, Deadline reported. The agreement includes several series commitments for the producer responsible for many popular dramas, including the “Law & Order”” franchise and the “Chicago Med”, “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.” series.
The series could be tagged as part of the “Law & Order” franchise, which leaves room for a crossover with “SVU” from former costar Mariska Hargitay, “reports Deadline.
“I’m the guy who will fix the wrong and she’s the one who will feed,” Meloni told James Lipton in a 2016 episode of “Inside the Actors Studio,” adding that romance would have ruined that dynamic.
Meloni obtained an Emmy Award nomination for the role in 2006 and left the series in 2011.
