Angie Harmon teases fans about her possible return back to Law & Order!

During a Tuesday chat with Entertainment Tonight, Baywatch Nights' star, 49, talked about her desire to return to NBC as Assistant District Attorney (ADA), Abbie Carmichael. She played that role in the franchise more than two decades ago.

ET reported that she said "I would love" and noted that Dick Wolf, the creator of the show, reached out while she was working on season 21. It premiered in February 2022.

"I was like, "Look guys. She recalled her response to the request. "I would love to go back in time with Abbie. She was so much fun and amazing."

Rizzoli & Isles actress added that she "just adores" Sam Waterson (DA Jack McCoy) in the series.

Earlier in the month, NBC announced that Law & Order was renewed for a 22nd Season.

The series follows the police officers who investigate crimes and the district attorneys who prosecute them. The show premiered on NBC in 1990. It received 50 Emmy nominations. It also starred a number of prominent stars, including S. Epatha Merkerson and Jeremy Sisto and Jesse L. Martin.

Its popularity led to a franchise. The fan-favorite Law & Order: Special Victims unit spinoff became a mainstay, currently in its 23r season. Mariska Hargitay will lead the series next season.

Law & Order: Organized Crime was another spinoff that premiered in 2021. It brought back Christopher Meloni, a former SVU star. The show has been renewed for a third series.

Harmon rose to fame in 1998 when she joined Law & Order. She remained on the show through 2001 as the ADA, a character who was often in conflict with McCoy or other members of her staff because she held conservative views.

Harmon was also a star in many episodes of the original season of SVU, before it was named a permanent DA.
