Actress Stephanie March is to reprise her role of Alex Cabot in a spring episode of Law & Order: SVU, the production announced Monday.

March played the New York City prosecutor in 90 episodes, starting in 2000. She last appeared on NBC's police procedural in 2012.

She is scheduled to return for a guest spot in April when "the search for an abducted woman and her young daughter leads Lt. Benson [played by Mariska Hargitay] to cross paths with her friend Cabot," a news release said.

"It is a thrill to welcome Stephanie back to the SVU family, even for a short visit," executive producer Michael Chernuchin said in a statement. "She is, and will always be, part of SVU's DNA."

March's other credits include Odd Mom Out, Nightcap and Neon Joe Werewolf Hunter.
