The most important Regulation & Order: SVU information over the summer season was that Kelli Giddish could be leaving the long-running procedural sooner or later in Season 24. The actress has performed Detective Amanda Rollins for over a decade, and even the introduction of a brand new detective hasn’t made it simpler to think about a future with out Rollins. Now that new particulars have emerged about how Giddish will likely be written out, there could also be a silver lining.
Kelli Giddish’s remaining episode of SVU will air on December 8 and she’s going to seem as a visitor star on Regulation & Order: Organized Crime sooner or later later within the present Season 3, in line with Selection. Whereas it isn’t excellent news for followers of Rollins that lower than two months are left along with her, there are indicators right here that the drama may give her a becoming farewell.
Kelli Giddish’s Last Episode On December 8
The ultimate episode for Rollins airing on December 8 means that SVU is reserving an enormous episode for her farewell. The primary or second week of December is conventional when SVU airs its midseason finale, and the Season 23 midseason finale aired nearly precisely one yr prior on December 9, 2021. Whereas it isn’t confirmed that Giddish’s remaining episode would be the midseason finale, I really feel snug saying that is the case.
And for all that I have been dreading shedding the actress (although one episode managed to make me much less nervous about her farewell), the concept that the midseason finale will likely be devoted to her swan music looks like one of the best ways to honor Rollins whereas additionally having to write down her out. Plus, Kelli Giddish has been completely crushing her performances within the wake of Rollins being shot within the three-part crossover premiere.
Apart from, the way in which that one other Wolf Leisure TV present mentioned goodbye to a sequence common not too long ago simply makes me all of the extra relieved that SVU has spent the complete fall season with Rollins constructing to her goodbye. Chicago PD wrote out Jesse Lee Soffer (a ten-year veteran of One Chicago) after simply three episodes of the present season; having Rollins till December 8 is virtually a blessing as compared. (Chicago Med can be holding a sequence common till December earlier than writing him out.) SVU can take its time, and that is not unhealthy information for me.
Kelli Giddish Is Coming To Organized Crime
Not like Mariska Hargitay, Kelli Giddish does not present up on the SVU spinoff on a semi-regular foundation, and is at present solely credited with one look on Organized Crime. The report that she’ll come to OC is not a assure that she’ll have an enormous half to play, nevertheless it’s encouraging to know that she’ll get to indicate up on the Stabler spinoff this season.
It is technically attainable that she may seem on Organized Crime after she leaves SVU since there have been no particulars about when she’ll seem in Season 3, however I am guessing it’s going to be someday earlier than OC‘s midseason finale. No matter occurs, the franchise is not simply shoving her into the background earlier than writing her out, and I will take all of the silver linings that I can get with shedding the character and the actress.
You’ll be able to nonetheless discover Kelli Giddish in new episodes of Regulation & Order: SVU on Thursdays at 9 pm ET on NBC, between the unique Regulation & Order at 8 pm and Regulation & Order: OC at 10 pm within the 2022 TV premiere schedule. You may also revisit previous seasons streaming with a Peacock subscription.
