The NYPD's dream team isn't returning to the small screen anytime soon.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit alum Christopher Meloni broke fans' hearts Monday during an appearance on HuffPost Live, saying reports that he'll come back to the beloved crime series alongside star Mariska Hargitay are false.
"No. I heard that rumor along with everybody else," Meloni, 54, said with a bemused smile. "I have no idea where that came from or what that's about, but I don't know."

It's been 25 years since Law & Order first hit the airwaves, making avid fans and amateur sleuths out of us all.
Though the groundbreaking cop drama centered on some of New York City's most gruesome crime stories, when stars Dann Florek, S. Epatha Merkerson, Carolyn McCormick and Jill Hennessy think back on the show's early days, all they can do is laugh.
In celebration of the show's September anniversary and WE TV's current Law & Order Binge-A-Thon, PEOPLE sat down with the four actors, who dished on everything from cracking jokes during gory corpse scenes to scary run-ins with real life criminals.

Our favorite is Onion veteran David Sidorov's "Yellow King Theory," which pokes fun at the insane brand of hyper-analysis the show has inspired in its fans. Sidorov's theory of who the real killer is might seem unconventional at first, but with his obsessive eye for detail, he's spotted clues that more casual viewers probably missed.

Dennis Farina, a familiar TV and movie face who played roles on both sides of the law, died Monday morning in a Scottsdale, Ariz., hospital. He was 69.
His rep, Lori De Waal, tells the Associated Press that Farina had suffered a blood clot in his lung.
A Chicago native from a large Sicilian-American family, Farina served for 18 years on the Chicago police force's burglary division before turning to acting when he was 37.
While his most famous role was probably that of Det. Joe Fontana on Law & Order from 2004 to 2006, Farina racked up an impressive list of credits that included the movies Saving Private Ryan for director Steven Spielberg, That Old Feeling with Bette Midler, Get Shorty with John Travolta, and Midnight Run with Robert DeNiro.

Another era of Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy has come to an end.
Arguably the goofiest duo on Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars, Alley, 61, and Chmerkovskiy, 32, kept the jokes coming, even after being sent home during Tuesday night's double-elimination.
When asked how she managed to tame her bad-boy partner, Alley told PEOPLE with a laugh, "Tranquilizers. Horse tranquilizers because human ones didn't work."

Police say they may have a case of life – and perhaps a crime – imitating television.
Julia Biryukova, 30, claims that her 2-year-old son, Sky, vanished from her parked car last weekend in the Seattle suburb of Bellevue, Wash., after she left him alone when she ran out of gas and walked to a service station.
But police have yet to find young Sky Metalwala despite a wide-scale search involving scent-sniffing dogs, and now there are lingering questions about the mother's role in the case.
"We suspect foul play," Bellevue Police Major Mike Johnson said in a press conference Wednesday. "Nothing about the story adds up."
In a twist, he notes that a recent Law & Order: SVU episode that aired locally the night before Sky's disappearance was found to be "strikingly similar" to Biryukova's claims. The episode involved a mother who covers up her child's death by claiming it was abducted from a parked car.

After 12 years on NBC, major upheavals are afoot for Law & Order: SVU.
First came word that Emmy winner Mariska Hargitay, who welcomed baby Amaya in March, would be scaling back on the job. Then, reports hit the Internet that Jennifer Love Hewitt would be stepping into the lead role.
Only SVU's executive producer and showrunner, Warren Leight, says "all of that changed" when longtime cast member Chris Meloni departed the show.
