‘Law & Order: SVU’ Renewed by NBC for a Historic 21st Season!

0 Celebrities News | Law & Order | Television No Comments


Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is coming back for another season – and making history while doing so.

The long-running hit series was renewed for a 21st season by NBC as of Friday (March 29), extending past its 20-season record previously shared with Law & Order (the original series) and Gunsmoke.

The Simpsons is the only show that has run longer on television to date.

Law & Order: SVU is a spinoff that premiered in 1999 and stars Mariska Hargitay

“We tip our cap to Dick Wolf, Mariska Hargitay and the amazing cast and crew of SVU, who now all go into the record book. This incredible run is an example of what happens when producers, writers and actors all come together and create a show that, year after year, speaks to its audience in a powerful way. We couldn’t be more proud of this remarkable achievement,” said NBC execs Paul Telegdy and George Cheeks in a statement.

Mariska‘s character, Lt. Olivia Benson, is now the longest-running female character in a primetime live-action series.

“I’m deeply proud to be a part of this groundbreaking show, and humbled to make television history today. The longevity and continued success of SVU is a testament not only to the show’s powerful storytelling and ability to connect with viewers, but to its necessity. We have told important stories for 20 years, and we will continue to tell them,” Mariska said.

Jenna Dewan Tatum will take on one of the lead roles in Fox’s new musical drama pilot Mixtape!

The 37-year-old World of Dance host will star opposite Callie Hernandez and Madeleine Stowe.

Mixtape hails from former Smash showrunner Josh Safran and Annapurna Television.

Written by Josh and directed by Jesse Peretz, Mixtape is “a romantic musical drama that looks at a disparate group of interconnected people in contemporary Los Angeles through the lens of the music that defines who they are. Mixtape captures the different stages of love, exploring if time can heal a broken heart and if love can withstand life’s tragedies,” Deadline reports.

Jenna will play Joanna, “a young professional with everything always under control. She’s the most rational person she knows. And yet she’s a little guarded, as if always prepared for the worst.”

Also previously cast in the pilot are Megan Ferguson and Jahmil French.

“Very excited and grateful to be a part of this incredible show with such an amazingly talented cast!” Jenna shared on Instagram.
