In the TV criminal justice system, an elite squad of detectives looks very on fleek for season 17. E! News has your first look at the cast of Law and Order: SVU's season 17 cast photo and everybody is looking on point. Of course Mariska Hargitay is front and center as Sgt. Olivia Benson because she's Mariska Hargitay and is front and center in the show and your heart.
Mariska is flanked by Peter Scanavino as Det. Dominick "Sonny" Carisi, Jr., Raúl Esparza as ADA Barba, Kelli Giddish as Det. Amanda Rollins and Ice-T as Det. Odafin Tutuola. You may recall Danny Pino's Det. Nick Amaro left the show at the end of season 16.
Go ahead and make your computer wallpaper. Go ahead, we already did.
SVU is now the longest-running drama on TV with no signs of slowing down. Season 17 premieres on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. with a two-hour episode. The premiere episode features the return of Dallas Roberts as Dr. Yates with some ripped-from-the-headlines twists straight out of The Jinx/Robert Durst's case. Other guest stars include Tamara Tunie and Elizabeth Marvel.
In addition to the departure of Detective Amaro in the season 16 finale, Benson finally adopted Noah. It was super cute.
Law and Order: SVU returns with its two-hour premiere Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on NBC.
