Today we received several reports, and it was confirmed by the trades that Patton had been in talks to join the cast, executive producer Neal Baer then confirmed that Patton has officially signed on.
Patton will play the show’s new assistant district attorney Mikki Von.
Mikki, who is described as “charming and savvy,” follows the departure of former ADA Alexandra Cabot (Stephanie March), and for a split second last season, Jo Marlowe, played by Sharon Stone.
The new season of Law & Order: SVU will premiere on Sept. 23 on NBC.
