This should boost those sagging Friday ratings.

Benjamin Bratt has signed on to reprise his role as Det. Rey Curtis on Law & Order, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Bratt, who vacated the mothership a decade ago, will shoot his one-episode comeback next month. I’m told the actor will figure heavily in a story involving S. Epatha Merkerson’s Van Buren. Might he be back to comfort her during her current health crisis? That’s my guess.

Happy to have Det. Curtis back, even if it’s just for one episode? Sound off below!
