'SVU' exclusive: Stephanie March is staying!

Stephanie-March_lOne down, two to go.

With so much attention focused on the Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay talks, I nearly forgot about the up-in-the-air fate of another Law & Order: SVU vet: Stephanie March.

I say nearly because I just did some snooping and learned that the actress has quietly inked a new contract to continue playing ADA Alex Cabot.

How lengthy is her commitment? Read on and find out…

NBC declined comment, but an SVU insider says March’s pact calls for her to appear in a minimum of 10 episodes next season. The show is expected to introduce one or possibly two new characters to fill the ADA void when Cabot isn’t around.

March, who left SVU‘s full-time ranks in 2004, returned for a six-episode run last spring. Her first episode back was one of the show’s most-watched of the season.

Ecstatic that March is sticking around? Then proceed to the comments section, silly!

    I’ve never watched her on Law & Order, but I liked her on Conviction….which probably nobody remembers or watched.

  • Bri

    UM. HELL YES.

  • Will

    Cool. She was always my favorite DA on that show.

    • Emily

      FAIL! Novak was so the best

  • Rob

    I’m happy to hear that Alex will be around on SVU this season. She was always my favorite ADA. I learned to like Casey, but Alex was always the best!

    I agree with Mavis. She was always my favorite ADA, but I learned to love Casey because I had to. So excited to hear she’ll be back – just wish it was as a series regular.

  • Rose

    Wow, I guess there are still reasons to watch SVU, lol.

  • Bobbi

    YAY! She was always my favorite ADA. Now lets get Chris and Mariska’s deals done.

  • Collins

    stephanie march FTW! this news (and the return of mariska) will firmly place L&O:SVU in my valuable DVR queue in the fall!

  • Elizabeth

    Ryan, I watched Conviction and liked it too (and her on it). She’s by far the best ADA they’ve had on SVU. Casey was okay, but this last lady was just horrific! So horrific I never bothered to learn her name. ;)

  • Lori

    This is great news for SVU.
    Now, if they can ink Chris and Mariska for Season 11…it might just put this show back in top form, like the earlier seasons.

  • Mica

    Awesome! :) She’s the only reason I started watching again this wreck of a show. Something to look forward to next season. Well, half of the season anyway.
