Wentworth Miller is going to return to Law & Order: SVU in the role of ADA Isaiah Holmes for an episode in season 22, which will be aired in the year 2021. Wentworth Miller will be returning as ADA Isaiah Holmes to Law & Order: Special Victims Unit season 22.
ADA Holmes was first introduced in the season 21 episode titled, “Murdered at a Bad Address.” Since it began on NBC in the year 1999, the Dick Wolf drama has featured many performers who would become familiar faces in Hollywood.
NBC is keenly aware of this history, and when season 22 was premiered earlier this month, it was followed by a special event. The Paley Center Presents Law & Order: Before There were Stars featured interviews with the actors that appeared across the various shows of Law & Order before they were famous.
Names such as Clark Gregg, Abigail Breslin, Leslie Odom Jr, of Hamilton, and Paul Wesley, The Vampire Diaries alum, spoke about their guest roles on the top-rated franchise. He has the distinction of showing up on SVU after rising to fame with Prison Break. He first appeared as a guest as a detective in an episode of the year 2009. Then, in the year 2019, he appeared as ADA Holmes.
Law & Order: SVU Bringing Wentworth Miller as ADA Isaiah Holmes!
Miller is going to reprise the role of Holmes for Law & Order: SVU season 22. When one of the classmates of Holmes comes under investigation, ADA Dominick Carisi Jr., whose role is played by Peter Scanavino, requests the help of Holmes.
The two characters earlier interacted in Miller’s initial appearance in the 21st season, establishing a rapport and a shared history. Though Miller’s episode doesn’t currently have a scheduled date, it is expected to be aired in early 2021.
Miller made his debut as Holmes in an episode titled “Murdered at a Bad Address,” which revolved around a closeted gay man, whose role is played by Guillermo Diaz. Initially, when Holmes is asked to look into the matter by Carisi, he jokes that he is being given the request because he is gay.
Carisi tells Holmes that this assignment has more to do with the sense of justice of Holmes, which not all his colleagues possess. As the episode comes near its conclusion, the extent of the harm that the character of Diaz has gone through becomes painfully evident.
