A fan of "Law and Order: SUV" asked rapper Ice-T, who stars in the show, about the pandemic guidelines that would be employed in the coming season as filming recently kicked off.


Following the resumption of filming "Law and Order: SUV," a viewer of the series asked Ice-T if the stars would be wearing masks while filming. The rapper and actor replied on Twitter:

"Not actually wearing mask in full scenes, or you'd never see us talk... But you will sometimes see us remove them."

In addition to his response, the rapper also revealed that the show's stars practiced social distancing in the first episode's scenes. The show, which has earned the title of the longest-running primetime live-action series on television, began filming its 22nd season in New York recently.

Executive Producer Mariska Hargitay was one of the first to express her gratitude that the show was back on the road once again after joining the rest of the entertainment industry in halting productions due to the pandemic.


The actress shared photos of the cast while they were having a virtual table read for the season's pilot episode. Hargitay also shared photos of the cast and crew on the first day of filming. All of the people present in the photo were seen wearing masks while waiting in a hallway.

As the show kicked off, the production was reportedly expected to explore the effects of the pandemic.


The executive producer also shared a selfie of herself with a hairstylist getting her hair done for the shooting. Both Hargitay and the hairstylist had their masks on to remain within the guidelines of the pandemic. She captioned:

"It's all happening. Back in hair chair with @cassihurdhair. First day of shooting season 22!! ?Making history. So grateful to be back at work."


As the show kicked off, the production was reportedly expected to explore the effects of the pandemic, as well as the tragic killing of George Floyd and the civil unrest that followed.

They intended to reflect on how the pandemic affected New York, the city in which the show is based. The show's producers had even more great news for their loyal viewers: they had succeeded in securing continuous renewals through the 24th season.

Now that production has started in earnest, fans cannot wait to see the magic that the cast and crew are working to put together. Season 22 of "Law and Order: SUV" is set to premiere in November.
