Let's Talk About the Insanely Talented Law & Order: Organized Crime Cast

Christopher Meloni and company did not come to play!

Christopher Meloni and Denis Leary in Law And Order: Organized Crime

Season 3 of Law & Order: Organized Crime premieres Thursday, September 22 at 10/9c, and fans are ready—especially after seeing July 13th that Christopher Meloni (Elliot Stabler) is back at work. 

Ahead of the new season, let's refresh our memories on the characters who inhabit Organized Crime: 

Who is in the Law & Order: Organized Crime cast?

Christopher Meloni as Detective Elliot Stabler

Meloni (as always) shines in his performance as Stabler, an SVU veteran, seamlessly transitioning back into character after a decade-long break from the franchise. He joins the Organized Crime Control Bureau after the devastating murder of his wife by a large criminal organization. 

Danielle Moné Truitt as Ayanna Bell

Every criminal-fighting team needs a strong leader to guide their way, which Organized Crime has in Sergeant Ayanna Bell. She's the squad supervisor and Stabler's partner. Bell never fails to see justice served; it's always just a matter of time. 

Ainsley Seiger as Jet Slootmaekers

While Stabler and Bell are often the last faces these bad guys see before heading to prison, the force behind locating these criminals is the quick-as-a-whip NYPD officer and former independent hacker, Jet Slootmaekers. Seiger has become an Organized Crime fan-favorite as Jet, bringing deadpan humor and never-failing computer skills to the table. When the task force is at a loss for the bad guy's whereabouts, you can always count on Jet to track them down.

Dylan McDermott as Richard Wheatley

McDermott stars as Richard Wheatley, a notorious crime boss and son of a famous mobster who is often the source of conflict for the members of the Organized Crime Control Bureau. He was a suspect in the murder of Stabler's wife and responsible for the murder of Angela's son. Needless to say, Richard Wheatley is a bad news bear—but super addictive to watch.

Tamara Taylor as Angela Wheatley

Taylor stars as Angela Wheatley, the ex-wife of Richard Wheatley and former suspect for the murder of Stabler's wife. Angela is a complex and troubled character who still manages to invoke a sense of vulnerability in Stabler. While Angela presumably died by suicide at the end of Season 2, fans are anxious to see if that proves to be true.

Watch Law & Order: Organized Crime on Peacock and on NBC.
