Mariska Hargitay is remaining in the NBC fold.

The Law & Order: SVU star has signed a new deal with Universal Television to continue on the long-running procedural, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

While a new contract for one of television’s top stars could potentially spell good news for a 14th season of the Dick Wolf-produced crime drama, sources close to the show say it doesn’t guarantee that the series will return in the fall. NBC is simply locking up Hargitay, who is said to make about $500,000 per episode, in case L&O: SVU is picked up.

The news comes the same week that Hargitay touted the rebooted series’ new vibe at NBC’s Summer Press Day, where she gushed about new cast members Danny Pino and Kelli Giddish and new showrunner Warren Leight.

“This new cast came on, and I had no idea what to expect — and we had a new showrunner,” she told reporters Wednesday in Pasadena. “The show this year is awesome and different and has gone into different areas, and I get to play different things; my own story of having a boyfriend after 13 years. … My character has gone on this unbelievable personal journey that is both reflected in her persona life and the storylines.”

How big Hargitay’s role with the Universal Television-produced series would be this season was a question heading into last fall. However, NBC Entertainment topper Robert Greenblatt later said the actress wouldn’t be scaling back her role or leaving the series anytime soon.

Hargitay’s former co-star, Christopher Meloni, departed SVU after its 12th season following prolonged contract talks with the network. In his absence, the drama added a plethora of new characters, including love interests for Hargitay’s Detective Olivia Benson played by Harry Connick Jr. and Andre Braugher.

The veteran procedural has seen its ratings slide this season in the wake of Meloni’s departure. Wednesday’s installment was down 12 percent week-over-week in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, notching a series low with a 1.5.

Hargitay is repped by CAA.

    I don’t quite know what that
    means, but whatever Mariska
    does, I’m behind her.
    God bless!

    arial said on April 20th, 2012

    Ok, I read it again. I understand now.
    I like your Mariska
    page you got going on here.

    Jess said on April 20th, 2012

    Thank you Arial :) Mariska will be back for another season…now all we need is NBC to officially renew SVU and things will be good!

    Corinne Pina said on April 20th, 2012

    This is great news. I think they just like to create drama. If they weren’t renewing, how could Mariska renew her contract? They were probably waiting on her decision what they will do. Also, I think ICE-T has already signed up last year for 2 seasons. I think it’s pretty safe and the ratings went up during the season.

    arial said on April 21st, 2012

    So, when do you think we
    will find out if and for how
    long Harry Connick Jr will
    be back?

    Jess said on April 22nd, 2012

    @Corinne I agree! Mariska and Ice-T are both back next season and they probably were just waiting for her to sign before they made any definite decisions about another season. I think it’s safe!

    @Arial I don’t know if or when we will get any news about Harry Connick Jr.
