Chris again talks about a possible return to LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT as our favourite sex crimes detective Elliot Stabler. Once again Chris doesn’t leave out the possibility, however, he won’t return for the long term. He’s still saying he’s open for a return for a half season wrap up of Stabler’s character. The one thing here is that his show UNDERGROUND has been renewed for a second season, so the possibility of his returning to Stabler for anything more than a short stay is iffy. Considering too that season 13-17 showrunner Warren Leight is departing and his disrespect for the character of Stabler has been evident in his need to push the character of Benson (Mariska Hargitay) to the fore despite the fact her character was the one with the least possible interest despite that ridiculous NBC driven “most liked/trusted/pimped” character on television… This in this author’s opinion, but for me Stabler has always been the most interesting character, of course I’m a bit biased considering I’m a huge Christopher Meloni fan….hence the existence of this site, but for me Hargitay/Benson has always been the weakest part of this show, her and Fin (Ice-T). I always felt that Stabler, Casey Novak played by the always wonderful Diane Neal, the short term character of Dani Beck played by Connie Nielsen, and the disgustingly treated character of Chester Lake played by Native Canadian actor Adam Beach.

How Christopher Meloni Feels About A Possible Return To Law & Order: SVU

We’re currently in one of the most hectic times of the TV year, as networks are dishing out cancellations and renewals like crazy, and new shows are coming together while current favorites are putting their season finales out there. But all this chaos hasn’t distracted us from our big bag of TV wishes, and one of the bigger ones in there involves seeing Christopher Meloni returning to the insanely popular Law & Order: SVU as the formidable former NYPD detective Elliot Stabler. The actor makes it sound like that would definitely happen, too, if certain other parties would just ask him to do it.

I just recently was talking about that. [Pause] I always presented that I’d be open to doing the last few episodes, so that’s really all I have to say about that. It’s not up to me, I’ll just say that. I’ve said my piece on it.

So, not only does it sound like Christopher Meloni would almost immediately grab a tie and shave whatever beard he happened to be sporting so that he could reprise his most memorable small screen role, but it seems like he’s a little perturbed that his agreeing to come back has apparently landed on deaf or uninterested ears. Or at least hit some ears that aren’t too invested in worrying about it just yet with this season’s final two episodes still left to air.

After all, Meloni told EW that he’d be down with acting in the final few episodes of the series, which hearkens back to how the rumors of his return started in the first place. Before NBC decided to renew Law & Order: SVU for Season 18, it seemed likely that Season 17 would be the last one, and showrunner Warren Leight had mentioned in an interview that his plans for the final season included talking to Christopher Meloni about going full metal Stabler. But those conversations apparently never really happened after the renewal, though that doesn’t imply one way or the other that they won’t indeed occur when it’s clear that SVU is going through its last year on NBC.

I expect a lot of fan-pleasing things will happen during that final season, with returning characters and other ways of looking back, and Stabler and Benson’s relationship had better get a fitting resolution when the time comes. Of course, I’d be totally down with Meloni reprising Stabler in Law & Order’s upcoming true crime anthology series. Does it matter that Stabler isn’t actually a real detective? Not to me. I’d be fine with Stabler hosting Wheel of Fortune, so it probably makes sense why I’m not in charge of anything.

With its current batch of non-Stablers getting ready to meet a Brad Garrett’s latest turn as a bad guy, Law & Order: SVU will air its two-part Season 17 finale over the next two Wednesday nights on NBC.

Christopher Meloni To Star In Limited Run Series “Underground”

Chris has signed to star in the WGN series UNDERGROUND. No word on his character, but it’s to be a limited run series with ten episodes. More below.

Christopher Meloni to Star in WGN America’s Straight-to-Series Slave Drama ‘Underground’

WGN America is going straight-to-series with Underground, tapping Christopher Meloni to star in the slave drama.

Additionally, Friday Night Lights alum Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Aldis Hodge (Rectify) and Jessica De Gouw (Arrow, Dracula) will join the cast of the 10-episode drama. Anthony Hemingway (The Wire, Treme) will direct the first two episodes.

The L.A.-based cable network first announced it was developing Underground in August, when it went straight to series with Outsiders, its Appalachia-set 13-episode series.

From creator Misha Green (Sons of Anarchy) and Joe Pokaski (Heroes), the Sony Pictures Television and Tribune Studios entry follows the slaves who set foot on the fabled Underground Railroad, the secret network of men and women who risked their lives aiding them and the mercenaries tasked with hunting them down at any cost. Executive producers include Green, Pokaski, Weed Road Pictures’ Akiva Goldsman, Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold of Safehouse Pictures.

Law & Order: SVU alum Meloni — who marks his return to drama following last season’s short-lived comedy Surviving Jack — will play August, a secretive mercenary who walks a tightrope between survival and morality. Meloni had been getting multiple pilot offers this season, for both drama and comedy.

Smollett-Bell (Parenthood) will play Rosalee, a shy house slave with a powerful inner strength and courage; Hodge is set as Noah, a brave and clever slave on the plantation with dreams of freedom and a dangerous plan to escape; and De Gouw will portray Elizabeth, a socialite who shares her husband’s abolitionist ideals. Additional castings are expected to be announced. Production begins in the spring for a 2016 premiere.

Underground marks WGN America’s fifth straight-to-series order since the national cable network expanded into original scripted fare last year. It joins a roster of dramas including the second seasons of Salem and Manhattan — returning in April and the fall, respectively — as well as Outsiders (also from SPT) and is in preproduction on Ten Commandments.

Meloni is repped by Gersh and Industry Entertainment; Smollett-Bell is with ICM Partners, Storefront Entertainment and Fox Rothschild; Hodge is with Paradigm and Priluck; and De Gouw with UTA, RGM Artists, KTM Artist Group and Jackoway Tyerman.
