Christopher was seen filming scenes with several actors, including Danielle Mone Truitt and Ainsley Seiger.

Christopher Meloni just recently discussed the possibility of future Law & Order crossovers after Season 1 of Organized Crime began with a crossover appearance from Mariska Hargitay, while he appeared at the same time on SVU.

He said to Deadline he heard “a rumor” that the new spin-off, For the Defense, “might be a perfect offshoot for my friend here [Wheatley, Dylan McDermott] to weasel out of the charges from Organized Crime.”

“That’s just a rumor, so I can’t confirm or deny. But I actually just was discussing with the showrunner, Ilene Chaiken, getting together over shrimp and whiskey and figuring out where we go from here. We’re just so thoroughly focused and entrenched in getting these first eight done and hammering out 108, which will be the last of this particular series. It’s just, all hands are on deck right now.”

Here's How Christopher Meloni Describes Stabler & Benson's Reunion On 'Law & Order'

Christopher Meloni is opening up about what fans are most looking forward to in his return to Law & Order – Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson’s reunion.

However, what he has to say isn’t the happiest news.

During an interview TV Line to promote Law & Order: Organized Crime and the crossover event with SVU, Christopher revealed that Stabler and his former partner will have a difficult time reconnecting.

“Well, this is what I think about that: No one’s going to be satisfied,” he shared. “I mean, it’s such a long time. It is so many unanswered questions.”

Christopher went on, adding that there’s “such a great sense of abandonment and betrayal and a what-the-f**ed-ness of it all, that, you know, that wound is, you know, not going to…get its dressings all, you know, squared away. You know, it’s going to be a process, right?”

You can see the first teaser that NBC dropped which reveals the shock for Olivia of his return.

Elsewhere in the interview, Christopher reveals that his return comes with a bit of weight for fans and he knows it.

“It’s such a unique experience I’m living, which is a sense of welcoming and love and just, ‘Welcome back’ and ‘We’ve missed you.’ It feels very sweet. And I’m just going, man, not too many people get this,” he shared. “It’s not lost on me.”

Christopher Meloni Had No Idea 'Law & Order' Fans Still Loved Stabler As Much As They Did

Christopher Meloni is a little shocked that Law & Order viewers are really excited about Elliot Stabler’s return.

The 59-year-old actor is set to return as the iconic detective in a new spinoff titled Organized Crime, which premieres next Thursday, April 1.

“I have felt nothing but goodwill and anticipation and I am so humbled and shocked by it,” Christopher shared during his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week. “I just had no idea. I didn’t realize the character and the show resonated so deeply with people. It’s very sweet.”

Law & Order: Organized Crime centers on Stabler as he returns to the NYPD to battle organized crime after a devastating personal loss. However, the city and police department have changed dramatically in the decade he’s been away, and he must adapt to a criminal justice system in the midst of its own moment of reckoning.

Christopher also opened up about reunited with his SVU castmates, who he starred with for years before leaving the franchise.

“It’s such a cliché … I got on the stage of the SVU set and it has changed. They have different actors and it’s not my house, it’s not my place, so I had no connection. But as soon as I got to act with Mariska [Hargitay], it was like yesterday,” he says.

“We know each other and mess around socially and all that, but when we got down and cameras were rolling … it was such a seamless, effortless endeavour. It was great.”

Here’s one of the teasers for his return:

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.
