Chris Meloni Out of Law & Order: SVU Season 13
Is it just me, or are a lot of TV shows losing their main characters these days? It looks like Chris Meloni will not be returning to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit for its 13th season this fall. This seems like out of left to me, but TV Line learned that, despite assurances from the new NBC boss Robert Greenblatt that negotiations were in great shape, Meloni is walking away from the series.
Protracted talks between the actor — who has played Detective Stabler since the NBC crime drama’s 1999 debut — and studio NBC Universal broke down on Tuesday, says a source. Franchise creator Dick Wolf is said to already be searching for a big name to bring in opposite the series’ female lead, Mariska Hargitay.
It’s a little crazy to imagine losing Meloni after already receiving reports that Mariska Hargitay was reducing her screen time, having her character get behind a desk instead of out in the field. There was speculation about bringing a new female lead in the form of Jennifer Love Hewitt and Greenblatt still has his eyes set on her, and now we’ll start hearing rumors about who the new male lead will be. Before you know it we’ll have a completely different show on our hands. I don’t even want to start picturing all the random people who could be considered an adequate replacement for Meloni. Let’s just close our eyes and wish that Meloni is staying and him leaving is just a big stupid rumor.
