Munch Is Returning to Law & Order: SVU

Find out when to catch the happy reunion

Sadie Gennis

The gang is getting back together! Richard Belzer will return toLaw & Order: SVU this spring, Entertainment Weekly reports.

Belzer will reprise the role of Det. John Munch, a character he's played on more than 10 different series since 1993. Munch was last seen in SVU's Season 15 finale nearly two years ago, but he'll return in a May episode to help investigate a famous fashion photographer (Fisher Stevens) who is accused of preying on a young model. Munch and Fin (Ice-T) have long been suspicious of the photographer, but they never had enough evidence to take him down until now.

Law & Order: SVU to debut Bachelor-inspired episode

"We love having Richard back on set," executive producer Warren Leight said. "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."

Law & Order: SVU airs Wednesday at 9/8c on NBC.
