Mariska Hargitay Mariska Hargitay

Mariska Hargitay is putting on her badge again: The actress will return to work on Law & Order: SVU on Monday following a three-week absence, People reports.

Hargitay was hospitalized for a third time earlier this month for discomfort related to a collapsed lung, which she sustained in January.

The hospitalization forced Hargitay to miss one episode. Last week, her rep debunked rumors that the Emmy winner would be sidelined for the rest of the season.

Hargitay isn't the only familiar face on set this week: Hilary Duff will show off her dramatic chops in a guest spot, scheduled to air April 28.
