Law & Order, the OG that started it all, has sprouted many spin offs. Criminal Intent, SVU, some show called Justice something or other… And now it seems a new one is coming with a familiar face.

Christopher Meloni is set to reprise his Law & Order: SVU role as the lead of a new Dick Wolf series, according to trade reports Tuesday. Meloni himself confirmed the news by writing on Facebook, “He’s back…”

The 13-episode drama is said to revolve around Stabler leading an NYPD organized crime unit, which means there seems to be plenty of potential for a Stabler-Benson reunion, given the setting.

Obviously nothing can begin in the ways of production, but expect them to get started as soon as lock down is over.
