Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni surprised Law & Order: SVU fans with a selfie together on Instagram on Sunday!
Hargitay, who plays detective Olivia Benson on the crime show, shared the selfie of herself and Meloni to social media, seemingly after the two went for a swim.
“Easy like Sunday mornin… ” Hargitay captioned the photo, quoting Lionel Richie’s lyrics from the song “Easy.”
The post prompted fans to comment in excitement over the reunion of the iconic duo.”BACK WITH THE ICONIC DUE I SEE. BENSLER IS OFFICIALLY HERE,” one fan wrote in the comment section.
“Do you realize the impact these selfies have on our hearts,” another fan commented.
“I wasn’t ready for this,” another fan said.
Earlier in the day, Meloni posted a similar selfie but his caption was just a simple, “It’s on.”
Back in April, it was announced that Meloni would reprise his role as Detective Elliot Stabler in a spinoff series. To help launch the spinoff, Meloni will also appear in the season 22 premiere of SVU.
In June, NBC revealed the name of the upcoming spinoff would be, Law & Order: Organized Crime. The show will follow Stabler as he returns to the NYPD after suffering a “devastating personal loss.” According to NBC, Stabler will “find absolution and rebuild his life, while leading a new elite task force that is taking apart the city’s most powerful criminal syndicates one by one.”
The spinoff series will premiere this fall and will air on Thursdays at 10 p.m., following SVU.
