“He’s back,” actor Christopher Meloni said of his character on his Facebook.
It is part of the nine-figure, multi-platform five-year deal Wolf signed with Universal Television last month, Deadline reported. The deal includes multiple 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 branded as part of the “Law & Order” franchise, which leaves room for a crossover with former costar Mariska Hargitay’s “SVU,” Deadline reported
“I’m the guy who will right the wrong and she’s the one who will nurture,” Meloni told James Lipton on a 2016 episode of “Inside the Actors Studio,” adding that a romance would have ruined that dynamic.
Meloni earned an Emmy nomination for the role in 2006 and left the show in 2011.
