What Will Happen to Stabler's Family in the 'Law & Order: Organized Crime' Spinoff?

New details about the role Stabler’s family will play in the the upcoming Law & Order: Organized Crime spinoff have surfaced!

The new series will premiere on NBC on April 1 and starts with being an SVU crossover at 9/8c before the new spinoff airs at 10/9c.

According to TVLine, Isabel Gillies (who played Elliot’s wife, Kathy), Allison Siko (who played his daughter, Kathleen), and Jeffrey Scaperrotta (who played his son, Dickie) have all been cast in the SVU half of the event.

However, it doesn’t seem like things will be smooth sailing for the Stablers. The logline for the show says that Elliot Stabler returns to the NYPD after experiencing a “devastating personal loss” and will follow his attempts to rebuild his life as part of a new elite task force, implying that something tragic may happen within the family.

In an episode of the show’s official podcast, showrunner Warren Leight said that the original finale for Season 21 revolved around the family as well.

“We were going to see Kathy Stabler come back, very upset — her son has been rolled by a team of ne’er-do-wells and may have been drugged,” Warren said.

While that finale was scrapped when the COVID-19 shutdown interrupted production, the logline for the show suggests that something really huge might go down during the SVU half of the two-hour crossover.

Christopher Meloni originally hinted that fans would get to see a different side of Stabler in the new show last July.
