Meloni aired on the show for 12 seasons, and even got a nomination for an Emmy for his role. He played the perfect partner detective of Olivia Benson (Hargitay) on the hit series for over a decade. However, on the 13th season, he no longer returned.

Since his exit, Meloni has been vocal of his decision, adding that there were no regrets after leaving the show. He admitted that moving on was the best thing to do after contract negotiations failed. He has since been replaced by Danny Pino to play detective Nick Amaro.

On the other hand, Hargitay stayed on the show until it's 21st season that made SVU the longest-running action-drama series in history. The show's partners remained close friends despite the big decision to leave the show.

Meloni's next project was on Hulu's original, "The Handmaid's Tale," where he honed the character of Commander Winslow, together with his new co-star and on-screen wife, Elizabeth Reaser, during the third season.

"Commanders were linear guys who were kind of fearful and didn't want to step outside the established norms," Meloni shared. "There's a high price to pay when you make a mistake in 'The Handmaid's Tale,' and I wanted to present a guy who didn't have those constraints."
