Law & Order: SVU season 21 begins filming; see first slate

Law & Order: SVULaw & Order: SVU season 21 will be premiering this fall, but the good news we’re bringing you today is a reminder that the future starts now. By “future,” we of course mean the start of filming.

Following the first table read that took place yesterday, show executive producer Warren Leight confirmed on Twitter today that production is underway! He showed off the first production slate of the season, and a scene that seems to have Amanda Rollins featured front and center. (It’s hard to say for sure that it’s Amanda, but there aren’t any other blonde women in the cast at present!)

Production on SVU season 21 will continue from now until the spring and within that time, you will hear about all sorts of various news items. Think in terms of casting announcements, filming locations, episode details, and of course to watch so many of the stories play out. Leight is back as showrunner after having the role in the past and despite some of the changes, we do believe that this will be the same SVU that we’ve known and loved for so many years. Leight already knows how to deliver the goods. The challenge of the premiere is setting the table following the departure of Peter Stone and then also giving us updates on these characters and their personal lives. This is a show about the cases, but these are characters that we all care about and are all invested in.

Within the next few weeks, we imagine NBC will choose to make some more announcements, including the identity of their new ADA. They will likely want that news out there before someone spoils it via some sort of on-set sighting.

Law & Order: SVU season 21 is going to be premiering on NBC come Thursday, September 26 — be prepared for at least the first several episodes of the season to air this fall.
