Wentworthmiller_prisonbreak_290 TV’s favorite inmate is on the other side of the law now.

“Prison Break’s” Wentworth Miller will guest star on the season premiere of “Law & Order: SVU,” reports TV Guide magazine.

Miller will play Nate Kendal, an NYPD officer who saves a rape victim and interacts with Det. Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson, both of whom will be back since Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay just signed contracts to return for at least one more season.

So, not to offer an “Prison Break” spoilers — if you have yet to watch the finale (and why haven’t you?) — but we’re very happy to see Miller alive and well and in blue this time around.

“Law & Order: SVU” moves to Wednesdays this fall and premieres on Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
