    It's Official: "Law & Order: Organized Crime" Starring Elliot Stabler Is Airing On NBC This Fall

    Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler, coming to TVs near you this fall!

    A few months ago, it was announced that Christopher Meloni would be reprising his role as Elliot Stabler in a SVU spin-off called Law & Order: Organized Crime.


    Everyone and their mothers were excited about this announcement — ESPECIALLY Meloni's onscreen partner, Mariska Hargitay.

    Well, this morning, NBC released their fall schedule and Thursday nights just became my favorite night of the week!

    That's right! SVU and Organized Crime on the same night!


    Benson followed by Stabler? Can't have a better night than that.

    According to a statement released by Peacock, the series will follow Stabler as he "returns to the NYPD to battle organized crime after a devastating personal loss."


    Personal loss? PERSONAL LOSS??

    The series also isn't going to shy away from the current state of our climate — with police officers killing innocent black people and the overall Black Lives Matter movement.

    The city and police department have changed dramatically in the decade [Stabler's] been away, and he must adapt to a criminal justice system in the midst of its own moment of reckoning.


    While leading this elite task force to crack down on NYC's powerful and corrupt crime syndicates, Stabler is also going to attempt to "journey to find absolution and rebuild his life."


    AKA, Stabler is gonna be takin' names and crackin' skulls all while becoming the best version of himself. We love to see it.

    Now, the film and television nerd/amateur sleuth in me didn't skip over the fact that Organized Crime is going to air directly after, do I smell a crossover episode in our future?


    I mean, before COVID-19 shut down production, Kathy — Stabler's ex-wife — was supposed to be in the SVU season, maybe there's hope??? One can dream!

    I hope you're as excited as I am about this news! Until this fall, I leave you with this:
