Well, this week Chris Meloni, aka Stabler, took to Instagram to celebrate the end of his nearly decade long hiatus from the Special Victims Unit. *SQUEE*

We got not just one, but TWO Instagram posts from Chris Meloni, himself!

The first pic shows his forearm tatoo being put in position and secured in place. He captioned the post, “#firstdayofschool.”

The second post is from the set of SVU, and shows Chris with his daughter, Sophia — “Get to work with my girl- #BestDayEver.”

And, thus begins what is about to be the BEST reunion on television.

Earlier this month, Mariska Hargitay — who plays Olivia Bension on SVU — took to Instagram to show the world a screenshot of a virtual table read. It shows the current cast of SVU — and look who just happens to be up in the top right corner!!

According to ET, Detective Stabler is expected to make his appearance on SVU sometime in season 22 of the popular series.

Meloni’s appearance on Law and Order: SVU will to lead into the brand new show in the Law and Order Universe, Law & Order: Organized Crime, which will debut sometime in 2021.

Things in the SVU universe have been delayed just a bit. Can you guess why? Mmm-hmm, COVID. But, we can expect Stabler to show his face on SVU sometime in the spring, and then they will move forward with Organized Crime from there.

You KNOW, if we hear anymore news on this awesome reunion, we will pass the good news on to you.
