I would like to say hello to everybody on this message board because I finally decided to register. I am a fan for nearly half a year. Now that there will be a 10th season I am very afraid that they maybe will ruin it and then I will come to you to look for moral support, o.k. ?
My name is Ela and I live in Berlin, Germany so please excuse grammatical errors and typos. Thanks and we will read us....
This from Showbiz411 suggests Ms. Erbe is coming back too:
D’Onofrio, Erbe Back to “Law & Order: CI”: We Told You 2 Weeks Ago By: Roger Friedman in Exclusives, Television // September 21st, 2010 at 5:58 PM UTC
The official news is out that “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” is coming back to USA Network with its original stars.
Yes, I told you on September 5th in this very column that Vincent D’Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe were on their way back. It’s too funny to read it in what I now call “Deadline Yesterday.”
The show went back into production a week ago.
Anyway, so it is, as the stars were booted from the show a season ago and replaced with Jeff Goldblum. But Goldblum did one season on his own and abruptly quit. The world of Dick Wolf has never been an easy one, that’s for sure. But it’s good to have two “L&O” shows still operating in New York.
The loser in all this is Eric Bogosian, whose character was killed off preemptively. It’s not known if anyone else from that original cast will return. A source tells me, “They kind of want to start over.”
"Jeff is a nice guy and an excellent actor, whose work has often inspired me. It's a huge honour that he'll be replacing me". Vincent D'Onofrio 2009.
I hope the above report is correct. But I caution that is Roger Friedman of Fox News, and that there's been no reports in the trade magazines about the show going into production. It's quite possible that the writers and producers are at work, and the news hasn't spread.
