It’s only been two weeks since the cast and crew of Law and Order: SVU wrapped shooting the season 15 finale but, in an unprecedented move, they’ll be back to work in NYC tomorrow.

From what we’ve heard, the show’s producers have decided to begin filming season 16 now and then break again at the end of June for their usual hiatus.

Back on Oct. 18 the cast of Law and Order: SVU filmed several scenes outside 60 Centre St in NYC.

The cast, including Mariska Hargitay, Kelli Giddish, and Raúl Esparza, were all smiles as they joked and laughed between takes.

On Tuesday dozens of extras gathered outside the courthouse on Centre Street in Manhattan to film a protest scene for Law and Order: SVU ripped straight from the headlines.

In the episode, which will air in October, guest star Cybill Shepherd plays a woman loosely based on Florida gunman George Zimmerman who has killed a black teen named Mehcad.

During Tuesday’s shoot Shepard and her lawyer, played by Jeffrey Tambor, are met by a large crowd of protestors – a scene reminiscent of the recent Trayvon Martin protests that have taken place around the country – as they try to leave the court yet.

Yesterday the show’s Executive Producer Warren Leight told EW, “Tambor is a defense attorney representing a very high-profile celebrity woman chef who thought she was being pursued by a rapist and turned around it was a teenager. And she shot him. There’s a lot of stop and frisk elements to that as well.”

We have another collection of photos our readers have generously sent us from Law and Order: SVU at various location shoots across New York City.

The photo above was sent to us last fall by @Corinne0721 who said Mariska Hargitay “is the nicest person in the world.”

One of our readers, Dustin, spotted Law and Order: SVU filming near the High Line in New York City today. Mariska Hargitay, Danny Pino, and Tamara Tunie were all on set where they appeared to be “investigating” a murder.

In the photos you can see them searching a crime scene and later, between takes, you can see “the dead body” sitting up and talking to the cast!

One of our readers, JC, stopped by the set of Law and Order: SVU in Harlem on Thursday, where the series’ stars, Chris Meloni and Mariska Hargitay, were filming a scene with guest stars, Jeremy Irons and Elizabeth Mitchell. Check out more of JC’s photos and the lovely email she sent us about the experience. If you have a celebrity encounter thanks to one of our tips, let us know about it at olv@onlocationvacations.com!

Thank you so much for the detailed reporting of who was going to be on set at L&O: SVU today. I was kicking myself for seeing all the fan photos of the shoot yesterday and saw Elizabeth Mitchell. I figured it will be a forever elusive star whom I have adored since GIA and will never meet.

Today, I trekked all the way to Harlem to check out where they were shooting at around 11:15 am. I saw the trailers all over Convent Ave and walked around to check where the set was. Sure enough, there was Jeremy Irons, Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni shooting outside a beautiful three story home. It was take upon take as the three were knocking at the door. I assumed Elizabeth Mitchell was inside/answering the door but I wasn’t sure. I walked around the various trailer on the parallel street again just to see if she was coming out of her trailer or not.
