Actor Christopher Meloni has been a rather popular figure when it comes to his role in Law & Order SVU.
And now, Meloni is set to reprise his role as Elliot Stabler in a new drama from procedural king Dick Wolf. The as-yet untitled SVU offshoot has been picked up straight to series at NBC with a 13-episode order.
Representatives for NBC, producers Universal Television and Wolf Entertainment declined comment.
The series is the first to stem from Wolf's recent massive five-year, nine-figure overall deal that included multiple series orders for various platforms within the NBCUniversal fold.
The series brings Meloni back to the Wolf and L&O fold after he departed SVU following season 12.
It's unclear when the Meloni-led series will air, given the industry's massive production shutdown amid the coronavirus crisis.
