Mariska Hargitay Closes Deal To Return To ‘Law & Order: SVU’

After a couple of weeks of negotiations, Mariska Hargitay has closed a new deal for the upcoming 15th season of Law & Oder: SVU. “Happy weekend. It’s official. Season 15–I’LL BE BACK!,” Hargitay tweeted yesterday. NBC renewed the veteran procedural without Hargitay being signed but she was fully expected to return. Next season Hargitay and her former SVU co-star Chris Meloni both will be in primetime, with Meloni toplining the new Fox comedy Surviving Jack. In 2006, Hargitay won an Emmy for her role as Detective Olivia Benson on the veteran NBC drama.
