Many fans expressed their excitement and eagerness to find out what will happen in the new season through their comments on Hargitay’s tweet.
Previously, Hargitay already revealed that she had no plans of leaving the NBC series.
Speaking at a Paley Center panel in June 2018, Hargitay recalled her conversation with the former showrunner, Warren Leight. She said they were planning to leave the show before the 17th season kicked in because she said they were both exhausted.
Although, when season 17 came, Hargitay said that they “killed” it. Although the actress admitted that the 18th season was not a very good year for the show, she was confident about season 19.
Hargitay complimented the new showrunner, Michael Chernuchin, for the great job he has done for every single episode.
The actress said that Chernuchin was a genius and has been very attentive of what she had to say. Hargitay shared Chernuchin’s talent and leadership had motivated her to stay on the show. She revealed that she doesn’t plan on leaving anytime soon.
"I said, 'You keep writing like this, I'll stay for 25 years.' Why would I leave? I'm so grateful," said Hargitay.
It seems as though NBC felt the same for the actress since NBC Entertainment President Robert Greenblatt expressed that they plan to keep the show on-air as long as Hargitay continues to stay.
A two-hour season premiere will be shown on September 27th at 9 p.m. ET. Afterward, the series will be back on its regular timeslot on October 4th at 10 p.m. ET with all-new episodes.
