As EW’s Michael Ausiello previously reported, NBC has officially renewed Law &  Order: SVU, a rep for the show tells EW. It’s still uncertain, though, whether Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni will be returning to the network’s No. 1 scripted series. EW reported last week that NBC was threatening to replace the stars if they continue pushing for bigger paychecks. The actors’ contracts expire in May, so stay tuned.
