For everyone else who is eagerly anticipated a new ADA on Law & Order: SVU season 21, rest assured that there is news coming. Unfortunately, it’s a matter of waiting for the big announcement to come up — it’s not something that seems to be timed for a particular occasion!
If there’s anything that we can have some solace in, it’s knowing that it seems like a decision has been made behind the scenes! In a new post on Twitter, show executive producer Julie Martin joked that fellow EP Warren Leight would “fire” her if she was to prematurely reveal the news. It’s nice to know that the truth is (somewhere) out there, though we’re sure that there are a lot of people who already assumed that in the first place. How could the writers not include a new ADA in the early going?
We recognize that, in theory, SVU could go an episode or two without an ADA since we don’t think every episode needs to feature a courtroom. Nonetheless, this character is valuable to making sure that all of the SVU’s work is not in vain week after week. They are there to serve justice and ensure that assaulters and criminals don’t end up back on the street.

Is it possible that the ADA is someone we know already? That’s the dream, though we’re personally preparing for it to be a new face, someone who will come carrying with them their own energy and perspective on some of the cases the SVU takes on. With a new character does come challenges, so Leight, Martin, and the rest of the writers will have to work to balance out their arrival with some of the case-of-the-week stories. You don’t want to make any episode too much about one character, since that can work to offset the overall balance of the show.
A new season of Law & Order: SVU — a record-setting one, in fact — will premiere on NBC later this fall.
