Justice Is NOT Served!! Chris Meloni To Leave Law & Order: SVU!!

| Filed under: TV NewsCocoHilary DuffSad Sad


This is DEVASTATING news!!

The only Law & Order worth watching, Special Victims Unit, is losing Elliot Stabler!!

The seksi actor, in real life known as Christopher Meloni, is ready to pursue other projects, but luckily, will give one more season after the show's 11th year finishes in May.

Meloni says,

"I think 12 years is enough, a good number. The writers will have fertile ground to figure out how to arc him (Elliot) out to another place – whether it's this world or the next. It will be a very difficult transition. I mean, Jesus Christ, every day when you get used to getting up early and working these hours. When you're an actor (not working) it's like, 'Has anyone called yet?'. And having to audition again, which I loathe."

And we're not the only ones upset about the news. Co-star Mariska Hargitay, who plays his partner, the awesome Olivia Benson, was moved to tears when she spoke about her character saying good-bye to his.

"I don't think she could be without him. She loves him, he's her other half."

We're grateful he's giving the series one more year, but then what will we do??? So sad!!

Maybe Ice-T's wife, Coco, can take over as Benson's partner!! That police station needs some class!

Or Hilary Duff can return as her negligent mother character turned detective!!!

What do U think?? Will U continue watching SVU???

    NO! I love this show and he's great on it. Do you think Olivia and Eliot will hook up or will they leave it as friends?

  2. 2

    I do not know who these people are. Never seen this show.

  3. 3

    He is HOT HOT HOT..In and out of his clothes :)

  4. 4

    I will miss him, but I do see where he is coming from- 12 years is a good run, and it's smart to leave before they want you out! Good luck in your future projects, Mr. Meloni!
    PS- I loved him in "In a childs name".

  5. 5

    If Chris or Mariska leaves LAW & Order SVU the show has to stop! I don't how this show will work without one of them!

  6. 6

    I won't watch once he's gone… this sucks

  7. 7

    NOOOOOO! No!

    Re: tom951 – I don't know who you are and i never saw your show so guess what?? I don't give a shit about you. you don't have to comment just to say" i don't know who these people are"

  10. 10

    No! Stabler and Benson are one of the best teams in television history. Chris Meloni gets me wet. Yummm! I can understand his wanting to move on.

  11. 11

    Oh, leave already.
    I saw him on "Oz" when he played an inmate. His character peed on camera. (Kinda like Chloe Sevigny, who gave her director/boyfriend oral sex on camera.)
    Is Meloni so stupid that he doesn't know the difference between acting and bodily functions?
    SUV can't hold a candle to the original L&O. Ice-T and Richard Belzer?? Puh-lease.

  12. 12

    Re: tom951 – Why did you waste your time commenting then?! Douche.

  13. 13


  14. 14

    NNNNNOOOOOO! I love them onscreen, they have such good chemistry. Plus, that is my favoirite show.

  15. 15

    I hope they give him a hefty raise so he'll stay… and if he DOES leave, he and Olivia better (FINALLY) do it!!!

  16. 16

    Only Law & Order worth watching? I think you have this confused with Criminal Intent. Vincent D'onofrio eats this guys lunch…

  17. 17


    This is the end of the world

  18. 18

    Re: sayrah999 – Ooooo! I would SO love to see them get together.
    I personally can't imagine the show without him; but, then again, I was positive "Law and Order" would be unwatchable without Jerry Orbach. I miss Lenny but it's still great!

  19. 19

    NOOO!!!!!! Mariska should leave too then. Its a NO SHOW without the both of them!

  20. lolli says – reply to this


    OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG!!!!!!! SAY IT AINT SO!!!!!! I LOVE STABLER, AND SVU IS THE BEST WITH HIM AND MY OLIVIA. It won't be the same when he goes, cause im pretty sure Mariska will leave soon after. im so pissed.

  21. 21

    SVU is clearly the crappiest of the 3. No one out classes Vincent D'Onofrio.

  22. 22

    He overacts. Bye. Almost as annoying as Vince D'Onofrio.

  23. 23

    Maybe He Can Finally Boink Olivia & Then His Wife Will Catch Them in The Act & Shoot Him With His Own Gun!

  24. 24

    NO!! How can SVU exist without Stabler?
    Goran already left in CI

    At least there will be re-runs.

  25. 25

    why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!hell no taking him out is like suicide man!!!!!he was awesoem without stabler ill die atleast we still have benson!!!but how can you take out someone that has been in the lead role since 1999

  26. 26

    Mischa Barton could make a comeback as the hooker turned detective.

    … but in all seriousness, that sucks, I can't imagine what the show would be like without him. But he does give a pretty good excuse for leaving too.

  27. 27

    NOoooooooooo,don't leave Chris……………………………………..

  28. 28


  29. 29

    Re: nikkikiddle – You are so right. Not only does he overact but he chews up all the scenery. Good riddance. The show can only get better now.

  30. 30

    I have no clue who these people are, have never seen this show ever.

  31. 31


  32. 32

    this show has gotten so lame the last few years that i fall asleep when i watch it now. i think it will be good for him to leave. his character has gotten very annoying and it may give the series a seriouse needed shakeup. the episodes are barely SVU related topics now. the beginning of a show may start with a woman being raped and by the time the episode is over it will be about a drug cartel in south america. its all over the place and it needs to end.

  33. 33

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not my second favorite person on the show!!!!!! Without him and Mariska together there is no law and order svu. Heartbreaking!!!!!!

  34. Misa7 says – reply to this


    Olivia sans Elliot:( !! I love this show !!!

  35. 35


  36. 36

    that is way sad. =(

  37. 37

    Oh no! Eliot is such a hot guy. I kind of hope Christopher Meloni is the same hot masculine type guy. A girl can dream.

  38. 38

    Nooooooooo…………..I will so miss Stabler and his temper. I love them both, and I don't think the show will be the same without either one of them. It's one thing when they switch out DAs, but one of the main characters?

  39. 39

    NOOOOOOO!!!!!! SVU and the Original Law and Order are the few shows left that I watch that are good! I'll still watch, but it will be hard not see Stabler there. Hell, him and Olivia are like Tom and Jerry, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Stewie and Brian, Mickey and Minnie, one leaves, it's total destruction!!!

    If he hates to audition, STAY ON SVU PLEASE!!!!!! You get $386,000 smackeroos AN EPISODE and you hate auditioning?!?!?!? STAY STAY STAY!!

    Okay got my venting out! LOL!

  40. 40

    Nooo this can't be happening I

  41. 41

    i am so sad right now.

  42. 42

    nooooo!! what is SVU without stabler!!!!! booooooooooooooo

  43. 43

    Re: britishdebs – i am with you on that

  44. 44

    nooo this is sad :( although his character is really messed up, he's such an important part of the show! and i love chris meloni….its just going to be sad without him

  45. 45

    nooooooo!! ELLIOT CANT LEAVE :(

  46. 46

    Benson and Stabler NEED to hook up at least one time before he leaves! There is so much sexual tension between those two, it's crazy. The story better be a hell of a lot better than the way they got rid of Detective Lake. He was so fine!

  47. 47

    I never thought I would I would ever say this in a public forum…."DON'T GO CHRISTOPHER MELONI…PLEASE!" (never say never)

  48. 48

    SVU is definitely the best of the law and orders. But if he really leaves I can't imagine what it will be like. I hope they at least tie up loose ends with him and olivia…they better hook up at least once! This sucks…

  49. 49

    i have to join everyone else in saying NNNNOOOOO!!!!! omg I am obsessed with this show and 90% of that is because i LOVE chris and mariska. they cannot be broken up! i guess after 12yrs he has the right to leave and we cant be mad at him but this is sooo sad. I have been home all month with a broken foot and really gotten into the SVU marathons on tv. i'm gonna miss it. it wont be the same at all no one can replace elliot and olivia as a team.

  50. 50

    NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! Ma che cazzo!!!! this cannot be… Olivia and Eliot ARE L&O SVU!!! :( ((( can't happen!

    although… perez, coco would be a good permanent (not Eliot's replacement) but an extra addition to the show. she was not too shabby in that one episode she participated in…

  51. 51

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! i loooove Stabler and i promise you as much as I love Liv, Fin, and Munch the show will probably be cancelled after 1 season without Stabler! him and Liv are the magic that makes the show AWESOME! it's like losing one of the cast of Friends…the death knell for the show!


  52. 52

    No I think I won't watch it anymore, the chemistry between Christopher and Mariska is one of the reasons i think the show is so good. They play very well togheter and I think that without Christopher the show will be very different from what it is now. It's sad that he's leaving because it's one of my favorite shows on tv. And I wish he would stay so that they can make a few more seasons!

  53. 53

    Damn they look like a couple there!!

  54. 54

    she so much more cuter and fem with longer hair. hate that short butch shit.

  55. 55

    This isn't true! It's just been taken from an article that has just surfaced! Well I really hope so. SVU will never be the same with out Benson and Stabler together!

  56. barny says – reply to this


    Shows what a n ASS he is.He and Mariska threatened to quit if they were not payed more,after crying enough they got what they wanted and now he quits.Proves what a dumbass he is.

  57. 57


  58. 58

    NOOOOOO! Are you joking. I hate his bigoted ass, but he makes the show!

  59. 59

    The Law and Order franchise has been berry berry good to us, but I think its time to piss on the fire and call the dogs. When you've spent that much time watching a series as most of us have, you can't replace them. Afterall, this isn't bewitched.

  60. 60

    Perez, the only L&O show that isn't serving justice is Criminal Intent. After NBC treated it like its unwanted stepchild and booted it off the network onto the USA Network, there were the endless changes. Secondary cast members came and went, then the main characters played by Vincent D'Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe (aka Goren and Eames), had to split the season with the secondary cast members, and now it's reported that after the two-part season premiere of CI, Vincent, Kathryn and Eric Bogosian are leaving the show. Vincent and Kathryn didn't make half of what the SVU main characters were making in terms of a paycheck, so it is a triple injustice for the CI fans with what is about to take place. Boo freaking hoo, Meloni is leaving…cry me a river. With the money he made over the years on SVU, he doesn't need to pursue any work for a while.

  61. 61

    There are very few shows I enjoy watching and they are SVU, true blood, modern family and 2 and a half men. I LOVE Olivia and Eliott, the show will not be the same if he leaves.

  62. 62


  63. 63

    it jumped the shark a few seasons ago

    i have to keep watching naked chris meloni on my OZ dvd's

  64. 64

    Man i'm sad that hes leaving he fits the character very well. SVU wont be the same without him :(

  65. 65

    He can't leave! Noooo!

  66. @v@ says – reply to this


    My favorite thing about how he played this role was the sudden injection a ways into the series of his character's ever present instability that could pop out any second. That took his role away from cookie cutter cop to go ahead and make my day.

  67. 67

    He's the star and likely the show will struggle without him but i'd continue to tune in for some more Munch and Tutuola action.

    ps.only Law and Order worth watching perez? whatsa matter? the other shows' story lines to complicated for you to follow?

  68. 68

    Re: tom951 – what rock have you been living under? do you even know what a television is?

  69. 69

    the show's survived without Mariska before but without Chris? I just hope he goes out with a bang….literally. (like Elle Green did for anyone who watches Criminal Minds)

    vigilantes cool
    perez tool

  70. 70

    You're a little late on the info here Perez. Neal Baer (exec. producer) has already commented on the situation saying that Chris is NOT leaving SVU.

  71. 71

    what the fuck? dont leave! hawtayyyyyyyyyyyyyy ;D

  72. 72

    NOOOO! are you serious!? he's one of the reasons i watch the show! and mariska! dam he is sexy!


  73. 73

    There IS no L&O without Elliot & Olivia. Nobody watches the show to see what crime gets solved next, they watch it because of the 2 main characters! Although last season was the worst written crap I've ever seen (and couldn't believe my eyes) with the bumbling red haired assistant, and the over-sexualization of the cases as a cheap, weird grab at titilation, and the ridiculous CSI-inspired use of new "technology"…like the Nike Runner Database… they have gotten back on track this season. This is one of the only shows on TV worth watching. And it will be completely screwed up if one half of the reason we tune in, is gone.

  74. 74

    Hopefully they can get Wentworth Miller (Michael from Prison Break) to take on a permanent role….when he had his guest appearance I thought that he and Olivia had awesome chemistry and he is REALLY easy to look at (especially with the shirt off)…..

  75. 75


  76. 76

    I can't believe this. That show is my all-time favorite. It won't be the same without Chris Meloni. *tear*

  77. 77

    don't leave, christopher please!!!!

  78. 78

    if chris leaves mariska better leave. olivia without elliot doesnt work and once he's gone i probably wont ever watch the show again.
