According to Entertainment Weekly, the series will return with regular Mariska Hargitay, whose future seemed uncertain. Shortly after co-star Christopher Meloni left the show, fans were worried about her desire to stay. But thankfully, Hargitay recently confirmed she'll be sticking around.

As for Meloni, he's found work elsewhere. Detective Elliot Stabler won't be returning to SVU anytime soon. The actor landed a full-time gig on HBO's True Blood as a malicious vampire. Next month (June 10), he'll make his big debut when the drama returns for its fifth season.

After leaving SVU, Meloni revealed, “My whole life on SVU was awesome. I’m appreciative of everyone on the show. There was nothing wrong with that show, or nothing wrong with those people. There was just something in my heart that was unhappy. I made myself happy again.”

We're happy SVU is staying put, and ecstatic that Meloni's back on cable. The actor previously appeared on the HBO prison drama Oz, where he played Chris Keller. He was a psychotic killer who was always on the wrong side of the law.

True Blood will definitely take him back to his evil roots!
