Hey everyone! I have some surprising news for all you Law & Order: SVU fans out there. Kelli Giddish, who plays the beloved character Det. Amanda Rollins, has just announced that she will be leaving the show after this upcoming season.

Can you believe it? In a heartfelt Instagram post, Giddish expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to play Rollins for the past 12 years. She mentioned how much she has grown both as a person and as an actress during this time. Starting on the show when she was in her late 20s, Giddish feels fortunate to have spent so many of her adult years with Rollins by her side. Of course, she didn't forget to give a special shoutout to the amazing people she has worked with, including the show's creator Dick Wolf, the talented Mariska Hargitay, who stars and produces the show, executive producer Peter Jankowski, and the entire cast and crew.

They have all contributed immensely to the success of Law & Order: SVU. Giddish left her fans with an air of excitement as she mentioned taking everything she has learned from her time on the show and applying it to what's next in her career. It will certainly be interesting to see what she has in store for us! Now, as for Giddish's final episode as Rollins, we don't have an exact date yet, but keep your eyes peeled because it should be around midseason. We can expect some emotional and intense moments as her storyline unfolds. But wait, there's more! Guess what? NBC just announced that all three Law & Order dramas—SVU, Organized Crime, and the original Law & Order—will be crossing over for the first time ever in a three-hour special this September.

So there's plenty of excitement and anticipation surrounding the future of these shows. Stay tuned for more updates as we follow Giddish's journey and the thrilling developments in the Law & Order world. It's going to be quite a ride!
