NBC Renews “SVU” for 16th (!) Season

svuDebuting in September 1990, had the original Law and Order still be on the air, it would be heading into its 25th season.  With the renewal of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, some form of Law and Order will have been on the air for 25 seasons.  Pretty impressive for a scripted television franchise.

Renewal talks for the 16th season had been ongoing for quite some time, with Deadline noting financials played a major role in the discussions.  Mariska Hargitay, who commands a hefty $400,000 per episode, is expected to return.
