Law and Order SVU Renewed for Another 3 Years
Law And Order SVU already is making history this year for its record-setting 21st season making it TV’s longest-running primetime live-action series!
Well, Dick Wolf is not done yet. NBC has renewed the hit Drama/Crime show starring Mariska Hargitay for another three seasons meaning we will see Captain Benson and her crew of detectives all the way to season 24!
This season also marks a milestone for Hargitay whose Lt. Benson became the longest-running character in a primetime live-action series, surpassing Gunsmoke‘s James Arness and Milburn Stone as well as Kelsey Grammer’s Frasier Crane.
The massive renewal for SVU is far from just a nod to its legacy. Now in its 21st season, the series continues to be a ratings stalwart and has emerged as one of NBC’s strongest digital performers.
