Rollins Admits to Carisi That She Can’t Be Alone | NBC’s Law & Order: SVU

Exciting news, Law & Order fans: Rollins (Kelli Giddish) is returning for some episodes toward the end of Organized Crime and Special Victims Unit. And the character has some big, big news: She's pregnant! 

How to Watch

Watch Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Thursdays on NBC and next day on Peacock.

If you'll recall, Rollins left the SVU at the end of 2022 to become an adjunct professor of criminal behavior at Fordham University. And it appears she's had quite the blissful few months. She's excelling so much at work that Stabler (Christopher Meloni) asks her for some help with a case in an upcoming Organized Crime episode. It's then we find out that she and Carisi (Peter Scanavino) are expecting a baby. (Rollins also has two daughters from a previous relationship, Jesse and Billie.) 

Fans will watch this all unfold on Law & Order: Organized Crime Season 3, Episode 21, airing May 11 at 10/9c on NBC and next day on Peacock. Below, read the official description of the episode: 

"When DNA from an SVU rape investigation connects to an OCCB unsolved murder, Stabler and Benson uncover a revenge-for-hire scheme on the dark web.  While Bell and Jet follow the money trail to expose the website’s anonymous creator, Stabler asks Professor Rollins for help with a key clue." 

Rollins will also return in the season finales of SVU and Organized Crime, set to air on Thursday, May 18.

Rollins' departure after the midseason finale of SVU Season 24 was tough for fans, as the character is so beloved. The cast was emotional, too, over the news. "Kelli, I've loved acting, learning, growing, talking, laughing, and crying with you," Mariska Hargitay (Benson) wrote on Instagram in December after Rollins' exit. "I've loved watching your achingly beautiful performances. I've loved watching our friendship deepen and grow and blossom. I've loved every single minute of it, and I will miss you so much. You have my respect, my gratitude, and my love forever. xo M." 

We can't wait to have #Rollivia back on our screens, if even for a few episodes!
