Mariska Hargitay was in Chicago this past week filming crossover episodes for Law & Order: SVU, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD. The crossover shows will be televised on November 11th and 12th.
Michael Brandt is co-creator of both Chicago Fire and Chicago PD. He had the following to say about the crossover episodes.
“It’ll be our seventh episode on all three shows,” said he says. “Something happens on Chicago Fire. The Chicago PD unit is brought in to investigate. That happens on Tuesday night on Fire. On Wednesday on SVU, (Sergeant Hank) Voight and intelligence go to New York and work with Benson (played by Mariska Hargitay) and everybody on SVU, which then leads them back to Chicago for the last hour on Wednesday night (on PD). Benson and SVU come to Chicago and she and Voight have some great scenes together (on Chicago PD).”
This is the second year in a row that these shows have done crossover episodes.

Mariska Hargitay recently joked about the return of her former Law & Order: SVU costar Chris Meloni. SVU fans have long hoped for a reunion of Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson. Alas Chris Meloni said there’s no truth to such rumors–no doubt crushing the dreams of many of their fans.

Are you among those who had hoped for Christopher Meloni to return to Law & Order: SVU? Will you watch the three crossover episodes in November of SVU along with Chicago Fire and Chicago PD? If you saw last year’s shows, you’ll see that Mariska Hargitay blends perfectly with the cast of both of these TV shows.
