Ellen Burstyn to reprise Bernadette Stabler on ‘Legislation & Order: Organized Crime’
Ellen Burstyn will reprise her Emmy-winning Legislation & Order: SVU position on the spinoff series Legislation & Order: Organized Crime.
Wolf Leisure, which produces the present, stated Thursday that Burstyn, 88, will return as Bernadette Stabler, the mom of Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni), in Season 2.
Burstyn gained a Primetime Emmy Award for Excellent Visitor Actress in a Drama Collection in 2009 for her portrayal of Stabler’s “troubled mom” within the SVU episode “Swing.”
Organized Crime Season 2 will premiere Sept. 23 at 10 p.m. EDT on NBC, with Burstyn to seem within the series later within the fall.
Organized Crime is created by Dick Wolf, the creator and government producer of the Legislation & Order franchise. The series follows Stabler (Meloni) as returns to the NYPD to battle organized crime after a private loss.
Danielle Mone Truitt co-stars as Meloni’s new associate, Sergeant Ayanna Bell.
Organized Crime premiered on NBC in April.
