Mariska, 55, bundled up in a dark coat and black slacks, while Ice-T kept it casual in jeans and a jacket. Law & Order: SVU is officially the longest-running primetime scripted series on TV, and the show recently added a new series regular.

Executive producer Warren Leight previously revealed that he was looking to make an impact with their history-making 21st season. "Thematically, it's a year about passages and changes. I don't think anybody at the start of the season will be in the same place at the end of the season. People's titles will change, people's roles in the squad room will change, people's domestic life—turning 21 is a major passage in life, so it should be for the show as well. With any luck, the special victims unit will still be up and running by the end of the season, but people will go through a lot of personal and professional changes, I think," he said.

Mariska has played Detective Olivia Benson since the series' inception in 1999. On a recent episode, her character dealt with the death of her brother Simon, played by actor Michael Weston. Simon showed up out of nowhere and Olivia agreed to meet with him, but he suddenly went missing. Olivia learned later that he had tragically died from an overdose.

The show's creators have certainly been keeping things interesting. Ariel Winter recently guest starred on the episode "The Darkest Journey," and they have had no problem finding stars that want a role on the hit show.

"You don't want it to be just a regular season, you want it to be special. You want the stories to not feel like they could've happened any time in the last ... it could've been episode 330 or 387, you want it to feel like, ‘That was one of the season 21 episodes.' We're looking for stories that allow as full a range of emotion as possible. And also, we can go out to actors and say to Ian McShane or Ariel Winter, which is, ‘Do you want to come and be here for the 21st season?' And that's a pretty good pick-up line," Warren added.
