Contrary to a report that surfaced in February, Chris Meloni will not be leaving “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” at the end of the 12th season.
The 12th season will mark the end of Meloni’s current contract with the show, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready to throw in the towel on Elliot Stabler. “When producers come back to me, you know, we can always talk,” he says.
“SVU” has not yet been picked up for its 12th season, but it is expected to return. When asked if he’d stay on the show past his current contract, Meloni said, “Yeah. Why not?”
