TV Line:

Det. Kevin Bernard is back on the case.

Anthony Anderson has joined Law & Order‘s upcoming revival at NBC, reprising the role he played on the flagship series, TVLine has learned.

We hear that Anderson will be back for just one season of the procedural. In other very significant casting news, Hugh Dancy (HannibalThe Path) is joining the continuation as an assistant district attorney.

The continuation, which will be Season 21 of Dick Wolf’s original L&O series, will premiere on Thursday, February 24, 2022 at 8/7c. Spinoffs Law & Order: SVU and Law & Order: Organized Crime will follow at 9 and 10 pm, respectively.

Law & Order was cancelled abruptly in 2010 at the end of its 20th season. Anderson, who starred on the series in Seasons 18-20, is the first original cast member to return. In September, sources confirmed to TVLine that preliminary talks were in the works with some of the franchise’s veteran players. At the time of its cancellation, Law & Order‘s cast included Anderson, S. Epatha Merkerson, Jeremy Sisto, Alana de la Garza, Linus Roache and Sam Waterston

Hugh Dancy has been tapped for the L & O revival lead

Deadline:

Anthony Anderson has become the first Law & Order alum to sign for the upcoming Season 21. Meanwhile, Hugh Dancy has been tapped as a lead in the revival of Dick Wolf’s venerable crime drama.

Anderson, who I hear has signed a one-year deal, will reprise his role as Detective Kevin Bernard, which he played on Seasons 18-20 of Law & Order. He is one of two original cast members, alongside Sam Waterston, who were approached early on about returning in a major way. Waterston is still in discussions, I hear.

Dancy will play a new character, an Assistant District Attorney. He joins fellow new cast addition to the franchise, Jeffrey Donovan, who also is set as a lead, playing an NYPD detective.
