How to Watch

Watch Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Thursdays on NBC and next day on Peacock.

Fans can't get enough of the thrilling storylines on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Season 24. But it appears weekly watchers will need to press pause on Captain Olivia Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and her tenacious squad in April. 

Benson's impeccable leadership has led the Manhattan SVU to become the pinnacle of success. This season, we've met fearless recruits Terry Bruno (Kevin Kane) and Tonie Churlish (Jasmine Batchelor), who have been valuable assets to Benson's squad. As the action unfolds, Benson has been battling her own demons about her former partner, Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni), and it's been intense to watch. 

Season 24 is definitely heating up in its second half, but it looks like fans have to cool down for a sec. Sadly, the show is going on a two-week break releasing new episodes in April. Learn when and how to watch new episodes of Law & Order: SVUbelow.
