"I'm not going nowhere until she's gone," said Ice-T, who plays Odafin “Fin” Tutola.

"We're sticking together!" Mariska, who plays Olivia Benson, added.

The actor - whose full non-stage name is Tracy Lauren Marrow - stayed on the crime drama for 20 years now.

Law & Order is now officially television’s longest-running prime-time drama.

Created by Dick Wolf, the police procedural and legal drama television series premiered on September 13, 1990.


Wolf recently said that the crime drama’s 21st season will “depict what’s really going on in our cities.”

"Twenty years ago when SVU began, very few people felt comfortable coming forward and reporting these crimes, but when you bring the stories into people's living rooms — with characters as empathetic as Olivia Benson — a real dialogue can begin," he continued.


He added that, through the show, he wanted to “shine a light on the wide-ranging victims and show that justice can prevail.”


The crime drama has hooked millions of viewers with its story-telling. Early this year, viewers were shocked over an unexpected twist in one of the episodes.


The plot twist involved an unexpected sexual relationship. The cast had to deal with a missing 16-year-old girl, played by Mallory Bechtel, who was believed to have been killed by a man, played by Eric Tabach, whom she met at a club.

She was on a school trip and she and her friend sneaked away from the chaperones, including her music teacher, who was played by Erik Jensen.

By the end of the episode, a big plot twist began to emerge. It was then revealed that the girl was not killed. She was actually hiding and keeping a secret, intimate relationship with her music teacher.
