“We are thrilled and terrified that Pablo Schreiber is coming back to Svu to reprise his role as psychopath William Lewis,” executive producers Warren Leight and Julie Martin tell TV Guide Magazine. “He’ll again be tormenting Det. Olivia Benson. Although he’s the one on trial, he turns it into hers.”
The Orange Is the New Black actor was last seen in the NBC procedural’s two-part season premiere, in which his sadistic alter ego abducted and tortured Benson until she turned the tables and nearly beat him to death.
