According to Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly, NBC has sealed a deal with producer Dick Wolf to bring Law & Order: Special Victims Unit back for an 11th season.
There’s a catch, though: The agreement does not cover leads Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay, whose contracts both expire in May. Ausiello further reports that the network has just begun to start negotiations with both actors. The duo last negotiated new contracts in 2007, when they inked two-year deals worth more than $330,000 per episode
NBC is expected to make a formal announcement this week.
