Law & Order: SVU is bringing a familiar face back to the force.
B.D. Wong will reprise his role as Dr. George Huang in Season 15’s penultimate episode, TVGuide.com reports.
In the hour, which airs May 14, Dr. Huang discovers something shocking about a suspect during a psychiatric consult.
Wong (Awake, Oz) left SVU at the end of Season 12, but since has made occasional appearances on the series. He returns as the veteran NBC drama is going through something of a transition, having said goodbye to original cast members Dann Florek and Richard Belzer earlier this season.
