The outlet adds that Sam has reportedly signed a one year deal for the revival, as has fellow alum Anthony Anderson.

“Very few casting announcements have ever given me this much pleasure,” series creator Dick Wolf said in a statement. “Since day one, Sam has had perfect pitch when it comes to Jack McCoy as a character who both reflects and expands our ability to understand the law. He is the ultimate conscience of the show and I look forward to him emulating the career of New York District Attorney Robert Morgenthau, who served until he was 90. With both Sam and Anthony returning, it shows that the 21st season is merely a continuation of where we left off.”

This will be Sam‘s 17th season playing DA McCoy, a role that has earned him three Emmy nominations.
