Law & Order: Special Victims Unit fans can breathe easy.

Mariska Hargitay returned to the SVU set Monday afternoon, E! News confirms.

The 45-year-old Emmy-winner suffered a pneumothorax—or partially collapsed lung—while the show was on hiatus for the holidays.

Even though filming of the highest rated member of NBC's L&O family was put on hold last week, the star's rep claimed Hargitay would not miss an episode.

Due to the illness, the actress was also forced to miss both the Golden Globe and SAG Award ceremonies, where she was nominated for Best Actress in a TV Drama Series.

The cause of her ailment has yet to be revealed.
