Law & Order originally aired for 20 seasons and featured dozens of cast members over that time.

Now that the series is coming back for a 21st season, fans are curious about which stars could appear in the revival. We now know it will feature at least one original cast member: Anthony Anderson.

Anthony Anderson has joined the Law and Order season 21 cast.

The 51-year-old is the first original Law & Order actor confirmed for the new season. But the news about his return came with word on a new cast member, too.

Actor Hugh Dancy is joining Law & Order in a new role. The English actor recently earned acclaim for his co-lead role on Hannibal, and he should be a solid add for the franchise.

Law & Order season 21 has release date in 2022

Law & Order will make its return in February 2022, so expect more cast news in the very near future. 

The show was last on the air in 2010 when season 20 concluded. Spin-off Law & Order: SVU has remained one of TV's most popular shows since then.

Christopher Meloni's new spin-off Organized Crime is also doing well, which may have set the wheels in motion for the Law & Order revival. Stay tuned for more cast news.
