Law & Order's upcoming spin-off is just a couple of months away, with NBC finally confirming a premiere date for Organized Crime.

Almost a year after it was first announced, US network NBC has announced that Law & Order: Organized Crime will premiere on Thursday, April 1 – but that's not all.

In what we promise is not an April fool, Christopher Meloni's Elliot Stabler will make his return an hour earlier than his dedicated spin-off, as Stabler will also appear on Law & Order: SVU (via Entertainment Weekly).

Organized Crime – along with its long-awaited reunion for Elliot Stabler and Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson – will serve as a spin-off to Special Victims Unit, as Stabler heads the organized crime division following a "devastating personal loss".

The synopsis reads: "Stabler will aim to rebuild his life as part of a new elite task force that is taking apart the city's most powerful criminal syndicates one by one."

The news of Organized Crime's premiere comes after Tamara Taylor was confirmed for the new series.

We don't yet know the details of Taylor's character, but the actress has plenty of experience in telly forensics, after playing the head of the Jeffersonian Institute's Forensics Division, Camille 'Cam' Saroyan, in Bones.

Law & Order: SVU airs Thursdays on NBC in the US. The show airs on Sky Witness in the UK, with select episodes available on NOW TV.
