Law and Order: SVU looks set to jump the shark after announcing key new cast members in former Chase star Kelli Giddish and former Cold Case regular Danny Pino.
Both will play new detectives after the exit of Christopher Meloni and a reduced role for Mariska Hargitay.
NBC Entertainment chief Bob Greenblatt says, “Kelli and Danny are two great actors who will join a proven cast headed by Mariska Hargitay as this exceptional series heads into a very promising 13th season.”
Creator Dick Wolf added: “I’m very pleased that we have two amazing actors joining the cast. I know this combination will give us the opportunity to explore the world of SVU with new eyes.”
