‘Law&Order’ Stars Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay to Reunite on Upcoming SVU Spinoff [VIDEO]

*Detectives Oliva Benson and Elliot Stabler are set to reunite on the upcoming “Law & Order: SVU” spinoff series. 

During an appearance on Wednesday’s episode of “The Talk,” Christopher Meloni revealed that his former co-star Mariska Hargitay will be making a cameo on his new show. 

“I think whatever we can slice away, whatever the writers come up with. I think we will both be looking forward to playing with each other in each other’s sandbox,” he said.

Meloni’s spinoff titled “Law & Order: Organized Crime” will follow his character Stabler as he returns to the NYPD to lead the organized crime division after a devastating personal loss. The show has received a 13-episode order.

In a recent interview with the New York Post, Meloni had this to say about a reunion between Benson and Stabler in crossover episodes: “Benson and Stabler are inextricably linked, locked and connected.

“I think there is truly and deeply a worthwhile, inherent drama in exploring that relationship and the complexity of how Stabler left — the unresolved emotions both characters feel and how the fans feel,” he continued. 

“I just think there will always be possibilities there,” he added. “People will always be hungry to see how we interact and how that dynamic has changed.”

During his appearance on “The Talk,”  Meloni touched on the return of his character after he retired from the police force in season 12. 

Asked by co-host Sheryl Underwood if his character is a “changed man,” Meloni said, “There are a lot of unanswered questions about how he left, why the silence vis-à-vis Olivia Benson,” he continued. “I think, in real terms, society, and what we are dealing with in society, has changed dramatically. So, I think you have to address that. And, I think the person Elliot was, I think we all evolve. I think all those things are going to be put into play.”

Meloni and  Hargitay co-starred on SVU for 12 seasons. He exited the series in 2011.
