Mariska Hargitay Says The First New “Law & Order SVU” is Ripped from the Headlines, Called “Remember Me in Quarantine”


The 22nd season of “Law & Order SUV” starts shooting on Monday. Star Mariska Hargitay says on Instagram: “the band is back together!”

In the grand tradition of all “Law & Order,” the script by Warren Leight and Julie Martin is ripped from the headlines. It’s called “Remember Me in Quarantine.” So the show is not avoiding the events of the last six months. I knew they’d hit it head on!

Will everyone be wearing masks? Let’s hope not. We’ll cut them some slack.
