It's the beginning of a new era.
When Law & Order: SVUpremieres its 13th season (Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 10/9c on NBC), Mariska Hargitay will be flanked by two new detectives — Goodbye, Christopher Meloni! Hello, Danny Pino and Kelli Giddish!
Pino takes on the role of Nick Amaro, a detective whose forte is reading the criminal and empathizing with them to elicit a confession. Giddish plays Detective Amanda Rollins, fresh out of training with a wealth of knowledge that hasn't yet been put to use.
What do you think of the new detectives? Will you miss Meloni? Sound off in the comments.
