The episode in question, titled “Unstoppable,” centers on a Trump-like character played by Gary Cole, whose political campaign “went haywire when several women made damaging accusations public.” Since last October, the episode has been delayed several times.

“This episode is one that was written months ago,” Wolf said. “I don’t know when it will air. They’ll tell me. I don’t control the programming.”

When pressed, Wolf explained when he anticipated the episode would hit the small screen, offering some optimism that it could see the light of day before the end of the current TV season.

“To put it honestly, I never pressured the network to schedule anything in a specific way, except for crossovers,” he explained. “I haven’t been told when it will air. I think it will be this spring, but I don’t know.”

Wolf’s comments come months after NBC officially pulled the episode from the program last November, after delaying its air date at least twice.

Law & Order: SVU airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
