Law & Order: SVU co-star BD Wong already landed a new regular job on NBC’s midseason drama Awake, which put his future on the veteran crime drama in doubt. Today on Twitter Wong confirmed that he is done with SVU. “I actually do not return for Season 13 of SVU! I’m jumping to Awake!,” he wrote. “It was amazing to have such a cool job for 11 years and to be a real NY Actor.” Wong joins SVU star Christopher Meloni who also is leaving the procedural this summer.
