Law & Order: SVU season 21 has just booked its next big guest-star, and this one is great news if you are a fan of Modern Family.
In a new post on Twitter, show executive producer Warren Leight first confirmed that Ariel Winter is going to be guest starring on the second episode of the new season (“The Darkest Journey Home”), one that should air at some point in October. Leight also joked that this is not a crossover between the NBC show and the long-running ABC comedy.

For Winter, getting this gig may very well be a casting dream come true. She’s long been a fan of the show and a supporter of all things Mariska Hargitay, and that is a big part of the fun about the series being at this point in its run now. SVU has the opportunity to book guest stars who grew up watching the show and has been in the majority of their lives. Ariel Winter was less than two years old when the show aired its first season! Go ahead and file that under “things that make you feel super-old” today.

One of the things that we know about SVU is that it does have this wonderful knack of getting great guest stars for a wide array of different roles. Take a look at Titus Welliver at the end of last season (even though we hate Rob Miller), as well as McShane and now Winter. It’s a testament to the power of SVU to bring people in, and the willingness of these big names to come on board. Leight is coming back to the showrunner post after years away, and these castings help to make sure the new season gets off to a great start. We know the stories will be compelling, but they’ll also get a hefty amount of press at the same time.
Like SVU, new episodes of Modern Family will premiere this fall.
