Yes, you read that right. Aside from Olivia Benson, your favorite "Law & Order: SVU" detective will be coming back to your TV screens sooner than you ever thought.
Christopher Meloni isn't just going to be the star of the show, but he will be playing Elliot Stabler, which makes us all SO happy.
This new NBC drama will start off with a 13 episode season and will, of course, be produced by the wonderful Dick Wolf.
Since this series stars Meloni as Elliot Stabler, yes, it will be a crime and justice based show. With that being said, it also takes place in New York City as it focuses on a different crime unit in the NYPD.
We don't have much information on this series yet, but we know that it is 100 percent in the works and was given the green light by NBC.
Meloni was the costar of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" with Mariska Hargitay as his partner in crime (fighting) for 12 seasons until he ultimately left the show and was replaced with a new partner for Olivia.
In "SVU," Stabler played an extremely hotheaded but passionate sex crimes detective who had a hard time controlling his temper due to the stress and nature of what he did on the job every day.
We can only hope that this new "SVU" spinoff will be a part of the "Law & Order" family and that there will be lots and lots of crossovers with "SVU" which was just renewed for three more years.
There can never be enough Olivia and Elliot badass moments and we PRAY for this to return to our TVs and our hearts.
