Benson has officially been saved.
NBC has renewed long-running procedural Law & Order: SVU for a 16th season, TVGuide.com has learned.
The Mariska Hargitay-led drama is coming off a strong year both creatively and ratings-wise — thanks in part to the #SaveBenson arc. This season's ratings are up from Season 14, and the most recent episode drew 6.2 million viewers and a 1.8 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic.
Law & Order: SVU airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on NBC. Are you glad the Benson will be back?
