The last time NBC aired a new episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit was back on February 22. The long break without another case for Olivia Benson and the SVU team continues tonight. The next new episode of the series, “Know It All,” doesn’t air until Wednesday, March 22 at 9 p.m. ET. Read on for a preview of the episode.
Instead of new episodes tonight, NBC will be airing two repeats. Up first is “Next Chapter,” which originally aired on January 4, 2017, at 8 p.m. ET. In that episode, a woman thinks she’s been raped by a man who already went to jail for stalking her.
At 9 p.m. ET, NBC will air “Chasing Theo,” which first aired on January 11, 2017. In that episode, the team had to find a missing six-year-old boy, only to discover that his kidnappers might be providing him with a better home life than his real family.
The brief episode description for “Know It All” reads:
A man under investigation for rape and murder threatens to expose the secrets of those working the case.
Another upcoming episode is titled “Genes,” and that involves the case of a rapist who thinks his desire to rape can be blamed on genetics.
SVU is the only remaining Law & Order show currently airing new episodes and is in its 18th season. In February, the 400th episode aired. Titled “Motherly Love,” it was directed by Mariska Hargitay herself.
