Law & Order: SVU season 21 key art about Mariska Hargitay, history

Law & Order: SVUFor Law & Order: SVU season 21, NBC has decided to keep things simple — and celebratory — with its key art.

As you can see below, the network is putting star Mariska Hargitay front and center for its poster, along with (of course) the fact that this 21st season is one for the history books. This season cements SVU as the longest-running scripted drama in primetime history and while we don’t think that’s the only reason the show is on the air (far from it), it’s a nice feather in its cap. It’s a testament to all of the viewers out there and also the cast and producers who have been working on it all of these years.

Beyond celebrating the record-breaking nature of SVU season 21, there may also be another reason for featuring Mariska and Mariska only in the key art. It allows the show to continue keeping some other secrets. Remember for a moment here that the series still has not confirmed who the next ADA is going to be, and if there was going to be a full cast poster, it feels like a necessity that you would have to include them. (There could still be something like that coming after that.)

So while there is a lot to celebrate in terms of the record-breaking nature of SVU at the moment, also remember this — we may also still have many more reasons still to go! There is no confirmation at the moment that season 21 is going to be the final one for the series — it really could still last for however long Hargitay and the rest of the cast and crew want. Maybe that means another few seasons, but we don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves. Let’s just prepare for what is sure to be another intense, compelling batch of SVU episodes that focus on raw, emotional stories and what can be done to help victims in need.
