With Law & Order: SVU Season 21 premiere just two weeks away, the show is now officially the longest-running primetime drama in the history of television. Season after season, our favorite detectives tell incredible stories and bring people together, one episode at a time — but only one person has been there since the beginning — Mariska Hargitay as Olivia Benson.
In this clip above, Hargitay, along with fellow cast members Kelli Giddish (Amanda Rollins), Peter Scanavino (Sonny Carisi), and Ice-T (Fin Tutuola) — discuss what it means to be a part of such a groundbreaking show.
“I’m so grateful to be part of this record-breaking season and this record-breaking show, and a show that started a conversation for the first time that our nation, our world, needed to discuss,” Hargitay shares in this video. Watch the clip above to see what’s to come in Season 21!
