Finally β€” the season 2 premiere of Law & Order: Organized Crime is upon us. This NBC spinoff, starring Chris Meloni, got off the ground and running. The Dick Wolf production is another police procedural that has its spin on mafia crime.

Former SVU detective Elliot Stabler (Meloni) returned to reprise his role after a disappearing act on SVU opposite Mariska Hargitay. Organized Crime garnered pretty good ratings, and NBC renewed it for the upcoming season. Thanks to the regular guest appearance of Hargitay as Olivia Benson, fans can see the dynamic duo all over again.

Considering no one knew if this iteration of Wolf’s franchise could stand up on its own, fan hype surrounding the return of Meloni’s character helped move things along. Former co-star Hargitay appeared in numerous episodes from the Organized Crime season, and we are here for it.

Expect to see the return of lead detective Stabler (Meloni) solving crime and taking names. There’s no show without him, and we’re glad he’s back in the franchise. Danielle MonΓ© Truitt (as Sergeant Ayanna Bell), Tamara Taylor (as Professor Angela Wheatley), Ainsley Seiger (as Jet Slootmaekers), and Dylan McDermott (as Richard Wheatley) are also continuing their season 1 roles. This Is Us alum Ron Cephas Jones joins the cast for season 2 as Congressman Leon Kilbride.

Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 2 will break down into three eight-episode chapters. The first chapter will resemble The Godfather, shaking Stabler’s faith. Details are still emerging about the remainder of the season. You can count on Stabler to work to take down Wheatley’s drug business. We don’t yet know if or when Hargitay might crossover from SVU again to help out her old partner, but we hope so.
