Law & Order: SVU star Chris Meloni sees his spinoff land day

Law & Order: Organized Crime, the highly anticipated spinoff TV series starring Christopher Meloni, has landed on the NBC schedule. The show will air on Thursday nights at 10 pm, just after his old series Law & Order: SVU, and will debut in the fall after coronavirus pandemic lockdown eases up. Meloni will reprise his role as Elliot Stabler, who runs the New York Police Department organized crime unit but has experienced a "devastating personal loss." The new series will follow him rebuilding his life while leading a new elite task force that is taking apart the city's most powerful criminal syndicates one by one. The six-foot-tall actor may have some guest appearances by his longtime L&O: SVU costar Mariska Hargitay. The original plan was to introduce the Stabler family in the season 21 finale of SVU, but the idea was ditched when the pandemic struck.
