Changes Afoot for 'Law and Order: SVU'

A new ADA isn't the only casting shakeup for 'Law & Order: SVU' this season. Get ready to say goodbye to a very familiar character ... the squad room.

Yep, according to TV Guide at the end of the fourth episode, which also sees the return of Gloria Reuben as U.S. Attorney Christine Danielson, the squad room will be no more. The reason? Well, according to the report, "all hell breaks loose."

Last season on 'SVU,' Benson and Stabler investigated cases involving "anchor babies," a pedophilia organization, social networking, casual encounters and illegal adoption. Benson herself was even investigated for ties to a murder in Central Park. And they had to contend with fiery ADA Jo Marlowe (Sharon Stone).

In season 12, the 'SVU' detectives welcome a new ADA, played by Paula Patton, in the fifth episode, plus break in the new squad room. New sets had to be built after the series moved production from New Jersey to New York City due to losing tax breaks. The season kicks off with a special two-hour premiere "that will take Benson and Stabler through the twists and turns everyone loves," said executive producer Neil Baer in an official release.
