USA Network Is Airing a Marathon of the Best Law & Order: SVU Episodes Ever

Grab the popcorn — the USA Network is delivering fans a 25-hour SVU marathon in honor of the show's 25th anniversary.

By Jessica White

Debuting in 1999, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is a cherished pillar of primetime, largely thanks to its endless re-watchability. 

For a quarter-century, Law & Order legend Mariska Hargitay has been taking viewers on a wild journey as Captain Olivia Benson, the fearless leader of the "elite squad known as the special victims unit." From the early Benson and Stabler (Christopher Meloni) era to Benson's meteoric rise in the Manhattan NYPD, fans never tire of the squad's stories. The series has become a cultural obsession thanks to the infectious procedural formula and endless lineup of Law & Order villains, the makings for the perfect marathon.

"[Law & Order creator] Dick Wolf is truly a visionary," the Emmy-winning Hargitay told Fox News Digital. "And I think that's a very singular thing to be a true visionary who understands our culture in a very deep way but also understands it's sort of ironic that a crime show would be actually calming in a way to our nervous system, knowing that somebody is out there taking care of it. That our voices are heard, and there are people that are on it. So that is it."
