Fans are only just getting to know Christopher Meloni as the new vampire BMOC, Roman, on HBO’s True Blood. But, clearly his fan base misses him on NBC’s Law & Order: SVU.

During Saturday’s panel for HBO's supernatural series at San Diego Comic-Con, an audience member asked the 51-year-old actor if he’d return for SVU’s finale. How did he respond?

“I’m always willing to consider it,” Meloni says. “I had 12 great years on that show and I loved playing that character. There is no bad blood there. It’s still doing OK, I guess.”

It may not be the most exciting response to the idea, but fans can at least take comfort in the fact that the door is still open and Detective Stabler may walk through it.

SVU fans said goodbye to Meloni in 2011. The show goes on with its 14th season this fall on NBC.

Do you think he should return for a guest appearance on SVU or leave that case cold? Sound off in the comments section below.

    Would love to see Chris Meloni return to SVU. The show was NOT the same last season without him. I loved the "friendship" between him and Mariska Hargitay. Please return to the show!!!!

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE COME BACK!!!!!! We miss you!!!! the show is not the same anymore!!! SVU is one of the best shows on TV and it was because of the chemistry and great acting of Elliot and Olivia. Please come back but not as a guest, come back to stay!

    I'm going crazy. Roman got staked, does he die? There's no answers anywhere.

  • Tugboat

    Me too. I'm pretty upset about it. He had already become one of my favorite characters. I assumed he'd be around for at least a season.

    Absolutley, definately, My word, Of course, Yes yes yes Chris should come back to SVU, It is just not the same without him. Olivia really isnt bonding the same way, and I am sure the Captain, would be happy if his old team were back. Have a rest Det. Stabler, then come back!

  • Svugrl

    Btw its on NBC...awk. BUT YES COME BACK!! Stabler never got a proper goodbye, and olivia was just left with no explaination. After 12 years of friendship. PLEASE consider it :)
