The cast and crew of Law and Order: SVU surprised fans last spring when, for the first time, they began filming their upcoming season only two weeks after completing season 15.
Typically, the series finishes filming in May and picks up again in late July but, since they didn’t take their usual break until the end of June, they only just resumed filming last week.
The show has been filming in their studio, Chelsea Piers, since Friday but we expect they will be back on location soon.
This season there will be a few new faces around the set, too. Person of Interest’s Peter Scanavino has joined the cast as Detective Dominick “Sonny” Carisi, Jr. who transfer to the SVU in Manhattan after working on the unit in other areas. Teri Polo and Stacy Keach have also signed on in guest roles.
