TV Series - Aug 29, 2022
Although offers Law and order franchise is still weeks away from returning to the first three-part lacrosse, and some are big SVU, The news changed expectations about what's on the way for season 24.
Kelly Giddish, who's been in business since season 13 as Detective Amanda Rollins, who's long been a procedural business, is being written as another detective who joins the special victims. As new details about her departure emerge, organized crime' Chris Meloni shared a fun meeting with Mariska Hargitay to create a buzz about the upcoming crossover.
Why Is SVU Losing
The actress broke the news that she was leaving Law & Order: SVU on social media, leading to speculation about why and what losing Rollins would mean for Season 24. One day later, Kelli Giddish leaving SVU was not a decision that either she or new showrunner David Graziano made.
Leading lady Mariska Hargitay reportedly tried to keep her co-star on the show, to no avail. Salary negotiations are said to have been part of the decision. At the time of writing, nobody at NBC or Wolf Entertainment has commented on the reports about why the actress is leaving or that executive producer Mariska Hargitay tried to keep Giddish on board.
However, Rollins isn't being cut between seasons, as a behind-the-scenes photo showed her and more cast members for Season 24, including newcomer Molly Burnett. She will also be part of the upcoming three-show crossover between SVU, Organized Crime, and the original Law & Order.
Three Crossover Show – How The Crossover Is Happens
Law & Order Season 22, SVU Season 24, and Organized Crime Season 3 will all premiere in September as part of a three-show crossover, much like the three FBI shows did on CBS last year. The event is said to bring the plotlines of all three into one story, which was successful for NBC when One Chicago could still do the major crossovers.
The event will begin with L& O&rsquo's Cosgrove joining forces with newcomer Det. Shaw after a young girl is killed in cold blood. That brings SVU&rsquo's Benson and OC&rsquo's Stabler into the mix when the case gets complicated. On the ‘law’ side, L& O&rsquo's McCoy and Price will have to seek justice in the face of even more complications.
The crossover begins with the shows airing in a different order than usual, with OC at 8 p.m. ET, SVU at 9 p.m., and Law & Order at 10 p.m. on September 22. In the meantime, Christopher Meloni took to Instagram to share some BTS pics that could get fans excited.
Chris Meloni Admire The Event
The three Law & Order shows stars were taking some publicity photos ahead of the new seasons, and they found the time for some shenanigans between pics.
Shenanigans seem likely to ensue when Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay reunite thanks to spending more than a decade as screen partners on SVU. Still, Meloni got a smile out of Law & Order Sam Waterston. Take a look
I'm not sure if Stabler and Benson would waste time like this on SVU or Organized Crime, so it's fun to see Meloni and his ‘homegirl’ having some fun. Jack McCoy isn't always full of smiles on Law & Order, so it's nice to see Waterston looking happy in the photo.
