NBC's long-running police-procedural drama series "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" is set to return again for season 16 Sept. 24 at 9/8c. As previously talked about, SVU's latest installment will see Olivia Benson's (Mariska Hargitay) new man: a newly adopted baby boy named Noah.
"To be in darkness and fear and all that that she went through and losing faith in humanity and then having, like, a miracle lobbed into your world, a light. It felt like a comet, really," Hargitay talked about her detective character. "I think that having a child changes everything and will redefine her."
Speculations suggest that after so much darkness in the previous season, fans will see the light returning on the show, especially for Benson. Instead of showing the detective in usual gritty crime scenes, recent promo videos featured Benson at home, peacefully and lovingly doting on her child. more >>
