Christopher Meloni Wants A Stabler & Benson Reunion Just As Much As Fans Do: 'They Are Inextricably Linked, Locked & Connected'

Christopher Meloni is opening up about returning to the role of Elliot Stabler in a Law & Order spinoff, titled Organized Crime.

Speaking in a new interview with New York Post, the 59-year-old actor revealed that one thing he, and many fans, want to see happen is a reunion between Stabler and his longtime partner, Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay).

“Benson and Stabler are inextricably linked, locked and connected,” he shared. “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.”

Elliot Stabler was confirmed to appear in the SVU premiere.

Christopher decided not to renew his contract during the 12th season in 2011, and his exit was explained by Stabler retiring from the force.

“How my character left was really unsatisfying, I think,” he added. “It almost feels that we won’t do one or two [crossover] episodes and move on our merry way.”

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

Law & Order: Organized Crime will air Thursdays at 10/9c on NBC.
