Per our sister site Deadline, Winchester will recur on SVU as Peter Stone, the role he originated on Chicago P.D. and then played on its legal-themed spinoff. Stone’s appearance in the SVU-verse makes sense: He’s the son of Benjamin Stone, the ADA on the original Law & Order. Peter will be an ADA in the Big Apple like his dad.
Winchester is the second Justice character to continue to live on another Dick Wolf-produced show. Jon Seda, who originated the character of Antonio Dawson on P.D., returned to that drama as a series regular after Justice‘s cancellation. Winchester is expected to make his SVU debut at midseason.
