Dylan McDermott joins Christopher Meloni on ‘Law & Order: Organized Crime’


The latest “Law & Order” spinoff is adding to its ranks. Dun-dun!

Dylan McDermott is joining the cast of NBC’s “Law & Order: Organized Crime,” according to Deadline.

The 59-year-old, who is coming off his Emmy-nominated turn in Netflix’s “Hollywood,” will co-star alongside Christopher Meloni on the upcoming NBC series.

The “American Horror Story” alum shared the news on Instagram by posting a photo of himself with the caption, “Here I come.” McDermott tagged Meloni and “Law & Order: SVU” and included the hashtag “#lawandorderorganizedcrime.”

It’s unclear what role McDermott will play, but Meloni will reprise his beloved “SVU” character of Elliot Stabler.

The new series will follow as Stabler returns to the NYPD after suffering a devastating loss to battle the city’s notorious crime syndicates.

Meloni portrayed Stabler alongside Mariska Hargitay on "SVU" for 12 seasons before his character retired and was written out of the show in 2011.

Hargitay, who continues to star on SVU, is set to also make an appearance on “Organized Crime” and will portray her iconic character of Olivia Benson.

Earlier this week, the 57-year-old actress gave fans a sneak peek of her reunion with Meloni on the show’ set.

In a black and white shot, the duo appear standing next to an automobile in a cemetery. She also included a photo of two director’s chairs showing their characters’ names.

"It’s all happening,” Hargitay captioned the post and included the hashtag “#OC.”

Production on the spinoff has suffered multiple delays due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While “Organized Crime” is set to premiere later this year, an official date has yet to be revealed.
