If a fourteenth season of the epic crime drama actually happens! DUN DUN.
Mariska Hargitay AKA Detective Olivia Benson has penned a deal with Universal Television that locks in the fiery actress for a potential 14th season of NBC’s Law and Order: Special Victim’s Unit. But this doesn’t guarantee the show's return!
While the show’s ratings have consistantly slipped, Mariska stands firm behind the new cast additions, and her character’s story changes:
"This new cast came on, and I had no idea what to expect — and we had a new showrunner. The show this year is awesome and different and has gone into different areas, and I get to play different things; my own story of having a boyfriend after 13 years. … My character has gone on this unbelievable personal journey that is both reflected in her persona life and the storylines."
We hope the show stays strong! We love your no bull**** character, Mariska!
