Law & Order creator Dick Wolf is also the mind behind the OneChicago and FBI franchises, and now there are reports that he's looking to do a crossover between one of his shows on CBS (FBI or the upcoming spinoff FBI: Most Wanted) and one on NBC (Law & Order: SVU or Chicago P.D.).
Stars of shows like 'Dawson's Creek' and 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' went on to play killers on 'Criminal Minds' and more.
If this crossover does happen, it would mean that SVU is part of the FBI world — SVU and P.D. have already been established to be part of the same universe with multiple crossovers in the past.
Numerous members of the SVU cast have played their characters on other series, not even necessarily as part of a crossover with their original show. Richard Belzer appeared as John Munch on 30 Rock, The Wire, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Arrested Development, The X-Files, and others.
Some stars just got their first Academy Award nomination this year!
Ahead of this potential CBS/NBC crossover, we're looking back at other times SVU has crossed over with another show to solve a case.
