Well this will certainly dull the pain of our precious Stabler's exit!
In light of the news that Christopher Meloni will not be returning to Law & Order: Special Victim Unit's upcoming 13th, we're thrilled to announce that not one, but TWO of our favorite ADAs will be returning - both Stephanie March, who plays Alex Cabot, and Diane Neal, who plays Casey Novak!
According to a spokesperson from the series, the pair will be back for "an undetermined number of episodes."
Oh man! We love them!
IT'S ABOUT TIME!
Fingers crossed that they'll be sticking around for a while! None of the other ladies have ever been able to hold a candle to either of those badasses!
What do U think?? Are U excited for Cabot and Novak to return?

We'll be VERY curious to see if these two will be able to replace the magic between the two leads that made this show so great to begin with!
As we've reported, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as we know it will be gone forever after its upcoming thirteenth season, as Christopher Meloni has left the police procedural, and Mariska Hargitay has taken a reduced role for one final year, which has left the door open for two new leads to come in.
And after a grueling search, it appears the final ruling is in:

On to bigger and better things!
Former Law & Order: SVU star Christopher Meloni is "thisclose" to signing on to the new Superman film Man of Steel.
He'll be playing a role of a general (not Zod, of course!) and will be shooting scenes with Superman himself, Henry Cavill.
This is a big step for Meloni. Even though he's been in movies before, this is his first role in a major studio blockbuster and could very possibly be one of the many reasons he left SVU.
It will be interesting to see if he succeeds on the big screen.
Good luck to you, Chris!

HOLY SHIZ! This NEEDS to happen!
It's pretty much common knowledge that the 2001 cult classic, Wet Hot American Summer, is pretty much the best movie in existence, and we're thrilled to reveal that co-writer and director, David Wain, is planning a PREQUEL film with all the same actors - which includes Michael Showalter, Michael Ian Black, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Christopher Meloni, Molly Shannon, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Banks - even though they're all ten years older!

As sad as we are to see him go…hot damn, have they found quite the list of replacements!
Now that it's official that Christopher Meloni will NOT be returning to police procedural Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for another season, series creator Dick Wolf and NBC have reportedly narrowed down their search for a new detective to five names, which include

Take that gun show somewhere else, you're not fooling us!
Christopher Meloni may play the real tough on Law & Order: SVU, but when it comes to his rescue dog, Frida, he's a totally push-over
"When we got her, her name was Lady Sophia, and she is everything about that word [lady]. She is very prim and proper."
Now that her name is no longer Lady Sophia, Frida has shown a few other personality quirks.
"She is a very willful dog. She's constantly angling to get her way."
He's now learned that, with Frida, "telling her to get off the couch five times" meant that he was the one who would eventually have to get off the couch so that she could have it.
That's so cuuuuute!

It's the end of an era. We don't think any version of the Law & Order will ever be as popular again, so enjoy this moment while it lasts, Dick Wolf.
This fall will mark the final season of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit with Chris Meloni as its star. After a lot of negotiating, it was decided that the Emmy-nominated will not return for the show's 13th season. It's being speculated that Mariska Hargitay will be next in line to jump ship, opting to spend more time with her new child and family.
Sad face…but as they say, good things! Besides, maybe its time for Jennifer Love Hewitt to really show us what she is made of!
Yes? No? Don't care?
