NBC also sets ”Manifest“ and ”Good Girls“ season debuts and gives ”Zoey’s“ and ”Ellen’s Game of Games“ new nights

“Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” fans will only have to wait a little longer to see Christopher Meloni reprise his role as Elliot Stabler opposite Mariska Hargitay’s Olivia Benson. NBC has set an April series premiere date for “Law & Order: Organized Crime,” which just so happens to be a two-hour crossover event with “SVU.”

Airing April 1, the crossover will begin with “Law & Order: SVU” at 9 p.m. and lead into the debut of the new Meloni-led Dick Wolf series, “Law & Order: Organized Crime” at 10.

Here’s the official description for “Organized Crime”: Christopher Meloni, reprising his role as Elliot Stabler, returns to the NYPD to battle organized crime after a devastating personal loss. Stabler will aim to rebuild his life as part of a new elite task force that is taking apart the city’s most powerful criminal syndicates one by one.

Along with Meloni, “Organized Crime” stars Dylan McDermott and Tamara Taylor.

The spinoff was created by Wolf, who will executive produce along with Ilene Chaiken, Terry Miller, Fred Berner, Arthur W. Forney and Peter Jankowski.

The series is produced by Wolf Entertainment and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
