Law & Order: SVU is about to go where few other shows have gone before: Season 20.

The success of the procedural drama is, no doubt, based on the strength of the cast, both former and current. Mariska Hargitay, who has been with the show since its premiere, leads her no-BS squad as Lt. Olivia Benson with along with longtime partner and friend (and now sergeant) Fin Tutuola (Ice-T).

The actress on what's in store for the milestone 20th season and for Olivia Benson.

Of course, after almost two decades on the air, the cast has seen its fair share of shakeups. Most recently, in Season 19, ADA Rafael Barba (Raúl Esparza) departed the series, but we also saw the return of Alex Cabot (Stephanie March), which means more surprises could be coming in the future.
