Mehcad Brooks To Replace Anthony Anderson on Law & Order

Law & Order has recruited Mehcad Brooks (Supergirl, Mortal Kombat) for a recurring role on the revival's upcoming 22nd season.

No details have been given in regards to his character, but it has been revealed that he will play a detective.

Brooks joins a cast that also includes original star Sam Waterston, who recently closed a deal to return to the series, as well as Jeffrey Donovan, Camryn Manheim, Hugh Dancy and Odelya Halevi.

The casting will help fill the void left by the departure of former original L&O star Anthony Anderson, who only signed one-year deal to return for the revived 21st season of the series and opted to depart rather than re-up. Anderson reprised his role from seasons 18-20 as Detective Kevin Bernard.

L&O will return for season 22 in the fall, kicking off a three-hour block of the franchise that includes spinoffs SVU and Organized Crime. No word on an exact season premiere date.
