Stephanie March will return to ‘Law & Order: SVU’ as guest star

Assistant District Attorney Alexandra Cabot has gone back to work.

Stephanie March will reprise her role as the ADA on “Law & Order: SVU” in April, NBC announced Monday.

“It is a thrill to welcome Stephanie back to the SVU family, even for a short visit,” executive producer and showrunner Michael Chernuchin said in a statement. “She is, and will always be, part of SVU's DNA.”

March’s Cabot will return in an April episode called “Sunk Cost Fallacy” in which Benson (Mariska Hargitay) searches for an abducted woman and her daughter.

The actress was a series regular from seasons two to five before her character faked her own death and entered the Witness Protection Program.
