Law & Order: Special Victims Unit alums Stephanie March and Diane Neal will return to the show for its 13th season. Both ADAs will appear in “an undetermined number of episodes”, confirmed an NBC rep.
March played ADA Alexandra Cabot around the second through the fourth seasons and returned for parts of the tenth and eleventh seasons. She originally left after her character entered the Witness Protection Program.
Neal came in as ADA Casey Novak from the fourth seasons through the ninth when her character was put up for disbarment. She returned for a guest appearance this last season, revealing she was only suspended, which helped transition into her return.
With Kelli Giddish and Danny Pino recently joining the cast, Christopher Meloni out, and Mariska Hargitay reducing her prominence on the show, season 13 of SVU is shaping up to be a return of the old and new.
