Law and Order: SVU – Casting News
The wait is over. After months of negotiations, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit stars Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni have renewed their contracts for two more years, a spokesperson for NBC confirms to us.
The two will be back for season 11, which begins Sept. 23, but the network is not commenting on the details of their deals. Also returning next season is…
Christine Lahti, who will be guest starring for the first four episodes of the season as an assistant district attorney. Stephanie March also returns to the show as ADA Alexandra Cabot in episode five for a 10-episode arc.

NBC just confirmed that Mariska and Chris will return. Killer CSU tech Dale Stuckey (Noel Fisher) definitely won’t be back in season 11, but it isn’t for a lack of trying. We caught up with Noel at the Hung premiere party, and he told us he’s planning on pestering the producers into having Dale in the background when the district attorneys venture to the prison.
More good news on the Law & Order: SVU front: The superb Christine Lahti is coming on board as the show’s newest ADA.
Lahti will appear in next season’s first four episodes, after which she’ll pass the rotating ADA baton back to the returning Stephanie March.
