I have a couple of stills for you of Diane from her final episode of LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT as our favourite redhead ADA Casey Novak. The episode is Valentine’s Day from the thirteenth season. My gosh I miss both her and Christopher Meloni. The show is just a mish mash of stuff that doesn’t even bear any resemblance to the show it once was and certainly is not about sex crimes of the NYPD. And where’s the LAW of the show? Ah well.

I just found out that Diane has a berth in the third season of the FOX show THE FOLLOWING. There she’ll join other LAW & ORDER alumni Connie Nielsen (Det. Dani Beck – SVU) and Annie Parisie (ADA Alexandra Borgia – The Mothership). No word on her character, but Diane did confirm it on her Twitter account. So looking forward to that this. Article to follow.
‘The Following’ Season 3: ‘Law And Order: SVU’ Diane Neal Joins Cast, Plot Before Season Premiere
With “The Following” season 3 premiere less than two weeks away, it appears another new cast member has leaked into the public fray. As indicated by various tweets, “Law & Order: SVU” actress Diane Neal will be joining what some have called the darkest, most nightmare-inducing plot of “The Following” yet.
The news comes to Design & Trend via posts from Neal’s Twitter account. Yesterday evening, the actress showed off a picture of the badge and gun that she’ll use as a law enforcement officer on the show. If one of her social media connections guessed which show the photo was from, Neal said she would reveal the answer publicly.
Within about 10 minutes, Dianne Neal replied to one fan with “The Following! You Win!”
For those that don’t recall Neal’s past history, she’s most known for playing Assistant District Attorney Casey Novak on “Law & Order: SVU.” After staying on the NBC show for seven seasons and over 100 episodes, she also made appearances on “NCIS” and “NCIS: New Orleans” as Special Agent Abigail Borin.
Given her past pedigree of law enforcement roles, as well as the picture of the gun and badge, it’s assumed that Neal will be in close contact with Ryan Hardy’s FBI trio during the plot of season 3. Spoiler TV lists the role as a guest cast appearance, which means, at least initially, it doesn’t sound too extensive.
As many Joe Carroll fans likely know by now, “The Following” season 3 premiere is only about a week and a half away. That means viewers have been eager to scoop as many details as possible about Fox’s serial killer drama. Design & Trend has a litany of spoiler articles revealing detailed plot information about 2015’s opening episodes, but those only exist for visitors that want to read them.
As for critics that have seen the opening moments of “The Following” season 3 already, they claim that the early plot contains “darker, more twisted, frightening and nightmare-inducing” scenarios for viewers to sink their teeth into.
Diane Neal is far from the first new cast member making a debut in “The Following” season 3. In the past, we’ve covered articles about alumni from “Homeland,” “Almost Human,” “24,” “The Goodwife,” “Weeds” and more. Those links may contain plot spoilers depending on how sensitive one is to such matters.
“The Following” season 3 returns to Fox with a two-hour season premiere on March 2.

Diane’s second appearance on NCIS: NEW ORLEANS. Not as much of her in this but enough for impact. The only beef I have with this episode is that BD Wong, Diane’s co-star in LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT where he played Dr. George Huang to Diane’s ADA Casey Novak, also guested. Problem: They never had any scenes together. Why must the Gods punish me?

A rare treat for you tonight. I have finally gotten a hold of some of Diane’s LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT promotional shots from season five. Here we have a freshly scrubbed Casey Novak as she entered the world of Sex Crimes. Some shots were donated by Raina, and we thank her so much for the kind donation.

Diane’s telefilm THIS MAGIC MOMENT has an airdate. The Hallmark Channel plans on airing it on August 17, 2013. More below the cut.
Diane Neal, Travis Schuldt, Vincent Spano & Charles Shaughnessy Star In ‘This Magic Moment’ On August 17
Diane Neal, Travis Schuldt, Vincent Spano and Charles Shaughnessy star in the Hallmark Movie Channel Original World Premiere of This Magic Moment on Saturday, August 17 at 9 p.m. ET.
Aspiring screenwriter Clark Gable (Schuldt) sees a chance for his big break when a movie, starring fabulous actress Helena Harris (Neal), comes to shoot in his small hometown. Clark manages to catch Helena’s attention and is soon helping her in her plan to make a former lover jealous. However, when their fake romance turns into something more, Clark finds himself caught between his admiration for the famous beauty and his feelings for his ex-girlfriend who has recently returned to town.
The cast also includes former daytime soap opera stars Brook Kerr, Molly Burnett and Robin Riker. Burnett and Riker have both been nominated for Indie Soap Awards for their web series work.

If you might remember Shaughnessy guest starred on an episode of LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT as a rapist in a case Casey prosecuted. the episode was called Recall and aired in the show’s eighth season. It was memorable due to the guest starring roles of Connie Nielsen as Det. Dani Beck and veteran actress Leslie Caron as Lorraine Delmas, a role Caron won an Emmy Award for Best Guest Performer. And Vincent Spano starred in a couple of episodes of SVU as FBI Agent Dean Porter. I love SVU reunions.

I’ve noticed a lot of comments directed toward Diane on her Twitter account regarding a return to SVU as Casey Novak. She keeps saying to those queries that it’s not up to her to be on the show. If as a fan of hers you think she has the power to hire herself, don’t know the way the television business works. She can only return to SVU only if there is the desire on behalf of the current showrunner and Dick Wolf to rehire her to come back and play the character. She cannot force the powers that be to hire her or to write for her character. That can only happen by the fans tweeting the showrunner and or the creator/producer of the show to ask they bring her back. So instead of directing all your comments at Diane and clogging up her Twitter account with those continuing questions, why not direct those comments at Warren Leight and Dick Wolf? It might seem more constructive to do so instead of asking her where she has no power. Only you have the power to bring Novak back either in a guest capacity or a full blown capacity a la seasons five through nine. I know this post may seem a bit snotty, but I thought it needed to be said. So what I’ve decided to do is to create a section in the sidebar where you can interact directly with Leight and Wolf to barrage them with those queries. Now one thing I should let you in on, Leight is notorious for blocking those who are negative towards his vision of the show with his pet Danny Pino as Vanilla Boy Amaro. The only other power you have as a viewer is plainly not to watch and tell Leight and Wolf you don’t like the new direction the show has gone in. I know we Christopher Meloni fans are tired of trying to tell Leight and Wolf we want Stabler back and give Chris what he deserved. So I’m just going to ask that you stop inundating Diane with those questions since she really has no power whether Novak returns. Certainly voices are being heard over at CBS where Diane is set to return to NCIS as Abigail Borin. See, they care about their fans…NBC, Leight and Wolf don’t give a crap which is why SVU‘s ratings are tanking. Just my own observation.

There is a television station here in Canada that airs LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT weeknights at 7:00 PM. Tonight while watching something else they played this promo. Because I have a PVR I was able to rewind and get the recording device I use to record things off the television onto my compurter fired up. Sorry the caps aren’t larger but I wanted to keep the integrity of the images sooner than blow the pixels. Enjoy.
