Detective Munch may have retired during Season 15 of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, but it looks like he is coming out of retirement, as Richard Belzer is returning to Law & Order: SVU Season 17! Hey, it may be for only one case on Law and Order: SVU, but one is better than none, right? Check out the details below in our Law & Order: SVU Season 17 spoilers!
EW broke the story and said that Munch will return to guest star on SVU in May in an episode titled “Fashionable Crimes.” They reported that “Munch returns to weigh in on the case of a young model who claims she was preyed upon by a famous fashion house photographer. While the photographer had been on Munch and Fin’s (Ice-T) radar for some time, they’ve never been able to make a case against him until now.”
This is beyond exciting news for SVU fans, but now if only Christopher Meloni would agree to come back, but he keeps denying us!
Warren Leight, executive producer, said: “We love having Richard back on set. This episode was perfect for Munch’s cynical eye, and just the right time for him to give Benson [Mariska Hargitay], and Noah, some much needed support.”
No specific air date was given, but it will be in May and with that being finale time, it could be part of the Law & Order: SVU Season 17 finale. Or at least May sweeps and getting viewers to turn in for the return of Richard Belzer!
