How Many Seasons of Law and Order: SVU Are on Netflix?

Sound the Alarm! 3 Seasons of Law & Order: SVU Are Leaving Netflix

Netflix giveth, and Netflix taketh away.

In the midst of celebrating all the exciting new additions heading to the streaming giant in JanuaryIncredibles 2, A Series of Unfortunate Events season 3, all the Indiana Jones movies, among others — we came to the startling realization that a ton of episodes of Law & Order: SVU (the best iteration of the NBC procedural, unquestionably) will be disappearing from the TV selection next month. Talk about a bummer, right? It's almost as bad as when Netflix announced Moana would be leaving the site in December . . . almost.

The series — which currently stars Mariska Hargitay and Ice T as Detective Olivia Benson and Sgt. Fin Tutuola, respectively — has been on the air since 1999 and has 20 seasons in total. When the calendar reaches Jan. 1, however, three seasons' worth of episodes will vanish from your queue: Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: The Fifteenth Year, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: The Sixteenth Year, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit: The Seventeenth Year.

That means that only one season will remain: The Eighteenth Year, which is streaming now. Then again, maybe Netflix will surprise us all and bring back a few old-school seasons that include our dear Elliot Stabler. A binge-lover can dream!
