Law & Order: SVU’s Elliot Stabler has been absent from the show for nearly five years, but that sure hasn’t sated the public’s itch for an Oliviott reunion.
On Friday, actor Christopher Meloni posted a delightful pic of he and former co-star Mariska Hargitay. Though the actress continued in her role as Olivia Benson after his 2011 departure, fans have not ceased to pine for his return, still hoping that the relationship of their dreams might become reality.
Naturally, then, everybody’s freaking out.
To the exasperation of those same fans, Meloni, 54, recently debunked rumors he might be returning to the show:
“I heard that rumor along with everybody else, he told Huffpost Live earlier in March. “I have no idea where that came from or what that was about.”
Since ’11, the actor has made cameos in shows like True Blood, Veep, and Drunk History.
No role, however, has drawn quite the fandom that Stabler has.
