Two vets are returning to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit this fall. NBC and Wolf Films announced today that Stephanie March and Diane Neal will reprise their roles as ADA Alexandra Cabot and ADA Casey Novak, respectively, for an undetermined amount of episodes. March was a series regular during seasons 2, 3 and 4 and went part-time in seasons 5, 6, 10 and 11. Neal was a full-timer in seasons 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 and showed up for one episode last season, which was the drama’s 12th.

In case you haven’t noticed, there have been quite a few comings and goings on the Dick Wolf drama. Chris Meloni left the show while Kelli Giddish and Danny Pino have come aboard. Ice-T got a new deal, and Mariska Hargitay will still be around to catch the bad guys.

SVU returns to production later this month and will air on Wednesdays at 10 this fall.
