SVU season 19 episode 9 return dateInterested in checking out the Law & Order: SVU season 19 episode 9 return date? CarterMatt has that for you within!

Based on the recent NBC announcement, SVU season 19 episode 9 is going to be coming on the air on Wednesday, January 3. That’s a long wait, but we’ve been through worse watching the NBC series over the years. There are often lengthy hiatuses in-season for a wide array of reasons. In this case, it is all about the holiday season. The network doesn’t want the ratings to suffer because of people going off and doing other things.

When SVU returns on January 3 it’ll kick-start a run of episodes that will presumably air for most of the month; after that, there will be another hiatus for the Winter Olympics (since no one wants to air against it!) that will run for most of February.

As for what we would like to see on SVU coming up, we know that Philip Winchester is going to be joining the show for a run of episodes as the character of Peter Stone. He first appeared as him on Chicago Justice, and after making an appearance on the Chicago Med premiere he’s going to be heading over to New York City.

We also of course know that there is an enormous cliffhanger that needs to be resolved here in the kidnapping of Noah. This transpired in the closing seconds of the fall finale and was one of the most devastating reveals that we’ve seen on the show. It feels clear that Sheila was not involved in what happened, and with that, there are many questions worth asking in terms of who would do this and why? Is it someone with a grudge against Ellie, Benson, Sheila, or someone else entirely? Is it just random? The promo below doesn’t offer up too many clues as to what happened one way or the other, but it does make it more than clear just how intense this situation is. You have to brace yourself for one of the most challenging episodes of the entire season for Olivia and the rest of the SVU team.
