After a couple of weeks of negotiations, NBC’s "Law & Order: SVU" has secured a deal for the return of star Mariska Hargitay, reports Deadline.com.
"Happy weekend. It’s official. Season 15–I’LL BE BACK!,” the actress tweeted.
NBC had renewed the show without Hargitay signed to return, although her participation had been expected. Her former "SVU" star Chris Meloni will also be returning to prime time, but this time starring in the new Fox comedy "Surviving Jack."
