Is ‘Law & Order: SVU’ season 16, episode 17 new tonight! New character scoop!

Law & Order: SVU logoYet again, we have another case of good news and bad news when it comes to “Law & Order: SVU,” but we will start things off here with the news worth smiling about: We know when the show is going to return to NBC! It just won’t be tonight.

While we were in the dark for a while, we have confirmed that the show will come on the network again with a new episode in two weeks on Wednesday, March 25. This will allow “Empire” to come and go, and give the show a better shot at good ratings against easier competition. This first episode back is also going to be one themed in part around Carisi, which leads us to the question we have for you now: What is going on with this guy and law school? It was mentioned earlier in the season, and not really referenced since.

Based on what actor Peter Scanavino tells E! News, this is something that is still under consideration for the show. We just have to see still what happens with it:

“I was thinking about [this same subject recently], ‘cause it’s like, ‘Huh, how long does it take to finish law school? I think he will, but I hope he’s like, ‘I really love being a detective now.'”

One of the nice things about this show is that even if the writers ever decide to move in more to the other side of the show, he would still have a part to play! This is not a series where leaving the police force automatically means that you are out of a job.
