LAW AND ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT to Return with Vincent D’Onofrio

Vincent D'Onofrio (Law & Order: CI)

The revolving cast door at LAW & ORDER: CRIMINAL INTENT will stop for Vincent D’Onofrio one more time.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that USA Network has ordered an eight-episode tenth and final season of the crime procedural with D’Onofrio reprising his role as Detective Robert Goren. The episodes will air in 2011.

There is no word yet on whether Kathryn Erbe will return as Goren’s partner Detective Alexandra Eames, but we do know Jeff Goldblum will not be back as Detective Zach Nichols.

Executive producer Dick Wolf said, “Only time will tell if this is a fond farewell or a renaissance for Det. Robert Goren, but everyone both here and in New York is ecstatic about going back to work on a show that’s a passion for all of us.”

What do you think about spending one more season with Law & Order: CI and Goren?
