We’ve got some sad news for fans of Law & Order: SVU. Due to a breakdown in contract negotiations, Christopher Meloni will not be returning for the next season of the show. Look, I’m sure many of you are bummed to learn that he’s leaving, but I’m here to guide you through this difficult time. I went through the same thing not a month ago when Steve Carell left The Office. Trust me when I tell you that you can and will get through this. Law & Order: SVU will continue and while it will be different than what you’re used to, it will still be your show. You will still be able to watch it and if for whatever reason you cannot fathom SVU without Meloni, you do realize there will be 12 seasons worth of DVDs for you to constantly have on loop, right?
Anyway, we wish him well as he goes to hump the fridge.
