Richard Belzer originally asked Dick Wolf if Munch could join Law & Order (1990) as Lennie Briscoe's new partner. But Jesse L. Martin had already been cast. Belzer later heard about this new series and asked to join on the condition that Dean Winters be cast as his partner. Winters was still under contract with Oz (1997) and had to leave the show after the first thirteen episodes. Winters returned as a recurring cast member in the 14th season.

Q
Why did Stabler leave the show in season 12?
