What comes next after a historic milestone? Well, for LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT, it’s a podcast!

NBC and Wolf Entertainment are launching THE LAW & ORDER: SVU PODCAST, which will serve both as a look back at the series and a place to discuss current episodes.

The podcast will include a weekly aftershow, “Squadroom”—hosted by Anthony Roman—that will feature interviews with cast, producers, and writers as they go behind the scenes on the current episode. The first episode, which will debut immediately after the show’s season premiere (at 11 PM ET), will include interviews with showrunner Warren Leight, plus series stars Mariska Hargitay and Peter Scanavino.

New episodes will be released weekly following the East Coast airing of the drama. (And you can subscribe now.)

Additionally, they have plans to utilize the deep library of past SVU episodes via “radio show”-style classic episodes of the series, which will repackage already-aired episodes in an audio-only format.

“We are always looking at new and exciting ways to collaborate with the Wolf team and an official podcast felt like the perfect format for a popular and long-running brand like SVU,” said Rob Hayes, Executive Vice President, Digital, NBC Entertainment in a statement. “We are excited to deliver new experiences and expand the discussion for audiences on a platform that allows them to dive in anytime, anywhere.”

Added Elliot Wolf, Senior Vice President of Digital for Wolf Entertainment, said, “We’ve seen on social media that SVU has a huge fan base, and the fans that engage are smart, curious and crave behind-the-scenes insights. We thought to give these fans more we could produce a podcast that continues the conversation. They can learn more about the creative process, the actors’ work and what makes the show tick. We presented the idea to NBC and they embraced it immediately.”

In addition to the new SVU podcast, NBC also hosts podcasts for THE GOOD PLACE, LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS, and AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR.
