‘Law & Order: SVU’ season 16 spoilers: Filming resumes with Mariska Hargitay, cast

Law & Order: SVU logoWe’ve been waiting to deliver some new scoop on “Law & Order: SVU” over the past couple of days now, and we finally can: The show is officially back at work filming season 16!

The reason for the later start this summer, in comparison to some other programs, is simply due to Mariska Hargitay and the cast getting a jump on new episodes earlier in the spring. They worked a little bit later, and then took a much-needed break to rest up after some very intense episodes that constructed season 15.

Obviously, there are also some stories that are going to be tackled on the show almost right away, and that includes whether or not we are going to see Benson function well at both home and at work. She has long had many struggles balancing her life, but it’s even more difficult now that she is doing something that millions of moms do on a daily basis … just with a high-stress job that puts her into the line of fire on an almost daily basis. This is something else that we worry about now for her, given that she has emerged from the William Lewis trauma and may be more conscious now that she has someone who she cannot leave behind in the world.

The new season will premiere in just over a month on Wednesday, September 24. Of course, be on the lookout for some further scoop about castings, the story, and much more.
