According to TVLine, the financial terms of Hargitay's new contract are yet to be determined, but it is likely that she will remain the highest-paid actress on TV.

For the 14th season of the show, Hargitay's contract demanded $500,000 (£330,000) an episode for a 24-episode run.

Hargitay tweeted the good news of her return on Saturday (May 25), when she wrote: "Happy weekend. It's official. Season 15--I'LL BE BACK!"
