NBC has announced the new Law & Order show starring Christopher Meloni's infamous character Detective Elliot Stabler will be a part of the network's Fall schedule.
The Fall schedule typically is released at some time during September, so fans only need to wait a few more months to see how Stabler returns to fighting crime in Law & Order: Organised Crime.
The network has unveiled the official synopsis for the programme and it sounds like a doozy.
"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," the synopsis says.
"Throughout the series, we will follow Stabler's journey to find absolution and rebuild his life, while leading a new elite task force that is taking apart the city's most powerful criminal syndicates one by one."
To be honest, the show could just be about Stabler getting coffee with his on-screen bestie Olivia Benson and we'd be thrilled. But this sounds like it's going to be amazing.
We've been told that the show will take into account real-world events and it will premiere on Thursdays after Special Victims Unit. Hopefully it won't take long before it gets streamed to other services around the world.
People went absolutely wild when it was announced that Meloni would be back as Detective Stabler.
The actor departed the SVU version of the gripping crime drama in the 12th season, leaving Detective Benson to eventually become captain of the department. The show has since racked up another nine seasons and there have been similarly bizarre stories.
Considering it will be set in the Big Apple, there should definitely be grounds for Stabler and Benson to cross paths.
Just imagine when Mariska Hargitay's character sees Meloni's for the first time in years. No doubt that will be one emotional rollercoaster to say the least.
The new series will have 13 episodes to begin with and hopefully audiences love it enough that it will get several more seasons.
