Wentworth Miller is heading back to LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT, Give Me My Remote has confirmed.

Miller, who previously played a renegade cop in season 11 and then portrayed ADA Isaiah Holmes in season 21’s “Murdered At A Bad Address,” will reprise his role as ADA Holmes in an upcoming season 22 episode.

In the installment, set to air in early 2021, viewers will learn that Holmes has been recently promoted to be the head of Brooklyn DA’s Civil Rights Unit. In the episode, Carisi (Peter Scanavino) “seeks his help when one of Holmes’ old schoolmates comes under investigation.”

The actor shared earlier this month that he was done with the PRISON BREAK franchise because he “just [didn’t] want to play straight characters. Their stories have been told (and told).” He followed up with a post saying, in part, “Am I saying gay actors (gay men, specifically) should only play gay parts? No. I was speaking for myself. At this point in my life/career, it’s what feels interesting, inspiring, right...My gayness was largely erased (by me, for starters) in the first decades of my career. It is my want, now, to center it in a way that cannot be missed by myself or anyone else.

When SVU showrunner Warren Leight applauded Miller’s statement, he noted “the thought had already occurred to us” to bring back Miller to play Holmes on the long-running series.

    Wentworth is really the only reason I subscribe to VPN to access US streaming sites from Asia where I am based as they are not available locally – to watch him play awesome roles such as this
