More Turnover at 'Law & Order: SVU' as Another Star Leaves the Show TVLine
Following the exit of Christopher Meloni, another of the stars of NBC's "Law & Order: SVU" has announced that he’s leaving the show, reports TVLine.com.
In a live tweet for the USA Network "L&O: SVU" marathon, B.D. Wong said, "I actually do not return for Season 13." Wong has played psychiatrist Dr. George Huang in more than 200 episodes.
Wong said he will be in the NBC midseason replacement "Awake." He's playing a psychiatrist on that show, too, one of two therapists treating the program's star, Jason Isaacs.
Wong also tweeted on Sunday: “I don’t know if or when I’ll be back [on ‘SVU’]! It was amazing to have such a cool job for 11 years and to be a real NY Actor.”
A number of cast changes have taken place recently on “SVU,” including the departure of Meloni and the additions of Danny Pino and Kelli Giddish as series regulars. Stephanie March and Diane Neal are also expected back in smaller roles.
