Fans are clamoring for more crosses between the new ones Organized crime and established SVU series can get their wish.
SVU Showrunner Warren Leight responded to a fan’s Twitter question about future crossovers by noting that scenes starring Christopher Meloni (aka Detective Elliot Stabler) had been filmed for a future SVU.
Leight didn’t specifically say the scenes were for a crossover episode, and it could just be Meloni appearing on SVU. But the Chicago-SVU The franchise has made several crossovers each season over the past two years, so this is an encouraging sign for fans of the Merged Universes.
Meloni returns as Stabler as part of his return to role he will play in new series Dick Wolf Law and order: organized crime, which features Meloni’s return as the NYPD detective he starred in for years Law and order: SVU. He will reunite with Olivia Benson as the series kicks off April 1 as part of a two-hour crossover with SVU.
The crossover starts with Law and Order: SVU at 9 p.m., followed by Organized crime at 10 o’clock in the evening. This marks Meloni’s Stabler reunion with now captain Benson of Mariska Hargitay after playing together in the first 12 seasons of SVU from 1999 to 2011. Stabler abruptly retired from the force, off-camera – in the Season 13 premiere.
