Vincent D'Onofrio will return to Law & Order: Criminal Intent for the series' 10th and intended final season, USA Network and Universal Cable productions announced Tuesday.
The 51-year-old actor starred on the crime procedural for eight years before leaving the show after last season's first episode just this past spring, when he was succeeded by Jeff Goldblum. Goldblum announced his departure in August because of the "uncertainty" of the show's future, according to Variety.

It's still unclear whether D'Onofrio will work alongside his longtime on-screen partner, Kathryn Erbe, or Goldblum's crime solving co-star, Saffron Burrows.
Criminal Intent was the second spinoff from the flagship Law & Order brand when it began in 2001. After ratings started to decline, the series moved from NBC to sister cable station USA in 2007.
The series' final eight episodes will air sometime in 2011.
