Law And Order SVU Cast

Law & Order: SVU’s Mariska Hargitay has been captivating audiences as Olivia Benson since 1999, and she's not finished yet. Season 24 of the series is coming this fall, and Hargitay posted a teaser cast photo to Instagram in July to get fans excited. 

How to Watch

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

“Next stop season 24! #UndergroundHeat #SubwaySeries #SVUandtheMTA #MetroMoment #bts #SVU #svuseason24 📸 @dinarama shot designed by Kelli Giddish,” reads the post caption. See the image, below. 

The photo features Hargitay seated on the subway alongside her costars, including fan-favorite Ice-T.  

However, it’s times like these when we’re reminded of Christopher Meloni and his equally-prolific character Elliot Stabler. Meloni left SVU at the end of Season 12, and not a day went by that fans didn't miss watching Benson and Stabler do their partner thing.

Fortunately, franchise creator Dick Wolf felt our pain. So, when Law & Order: Organized Crime premiered in April 2021, audiences ate it up.The Stabler-focused spin-off finally reunited our favorite pair in the same TV universe, even though they're technically on different shows. 

“[SVU] gave birth to Mariska and Meloni, and Benson and Stabler. So we’re kind of inextricably linked and connected in that way,” Meloni told Entertainment Tonight. “Beyond that, we’re very good friends. I think we value each other.”

Watch Law & Order: SVU on Peacock and on NBC. Season 24 premieres Thursday, September 22 at 9/8c on NBC.
