B.D. WongAcclaimed TV cop drama Law & Order: Special Victims Unit has lost another star - B.D. Wong has quit the show to play a psychiatrist on a new series.

Wong, who has played Dr. George Huang on the Law & Order spin-off for the past 11 years, took to Twitter.com over the weekend to announce his departure.

He wrote, "I actually do not return for season 13 of @nbcsvu #SVU! i am jumping to @nbcAwake #Awake!"

The news comes less than a month after actor Christopher Meloni announced he would be hanging up his TV cop badge after 12 years on the show.

Like Meloni, Wong appears to be leaving the show amicably, telling fans, "It was amazing to have such a cool job for 11 years and to be a real NY Actor."
