Shields who has previously appeared on two other NBC shows including Suddenly Susan and Lipstick Jungle will be joining an already impressive list of guest stars including Sharon Stone, Alec Baldwin, Whoopi Goldberg, and Carol Burnett.
So far nothing about the character has been revealed although Shields has teased that her character will mess with Benson’s world. “I play a very different character from any I have ever played, I’m excited to stir the SVU pot a bit.”
Shields isn’t the first new addition to the show as Philip Winchester is also slated to join the show to play a Chicago Justice role, lawyer Peter Stone. Hopping on board behind the scenes for season 19 of SVU will be showrunner Michael S. Chernuchin.
