    Pretty big news I think--Chris Meloni won't be returning to SVU. I only watched it occasionally on USA or whatever, but the show has a loyal fanbase for 12 years almost so this seems like a huge deal...

    I definitely disagree that it's a spoiler but I changed it just in case. It's a news item that's all over the internet.

    Really? Not seeing her in the role.

    Thank you. You'll be amazed how easy it is not to find stuff if you're not looking for it. This is the only site I read for this kind of content.

    So if I don't read it here, I can avoid pretty much all spoilers.

    What did you expect when you clicked on a thread titled "Big SVU Cast Shake Up"? Obviously changes in the cast were going to be discussed. :confused:

    A little surprising but not totally.
    While Meloni hadn't gotten as bad as D'onofrio over on Criminal Intent, both he and Hargitay have been chafing in their roles for the last few years.

    So will they bring in a new male detective or just give Finn more to do?

    Lol noooo I originally had something like "stabler gone from svu" as the thread title. I jet don't consider a huge casting newsbit between seasons to be a spoiler--it's full on out there... But it's all good...

    They need a new lead, either male or female. Finn can't carry the show.

    Meloni has been chafing for a while, the role he plays is very far from his real personality and I guess he kept asking for more money to make it worth it to him. This nearly happened a few years back with both leads.

    That's a shock.

    Oh well. If they could replace the D.A over and over, I'm sure, we can find a likeable character to replace him.

    Sorta tired of him and Olivia now though. Way too much on screen time overall then when the show first started.

    If the series was DOA, who the heck would investigate it? ;)

    I didn't realize the show has been around for 12 seasons. I watched maybe the first 5-6 seasons of the show, but haven't seen it in a while. In fact, I used to watch all the L&O shows, but quit cold turkey on all of them. I kinda got sick of the whole hour long cop drama thing.
