by Quentin Blount

There is nothing better than sitting around a warm fire after a long day. But Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay may be getting a little ahead of herself.

We all know and love Mariska Hargitay thanks to her role as Olivia Benson on Law & Order: SVU. She has been a staple on the show, starring in it since the very beginning in 1999. As a matter of fact, the fan-favorite show is still running to this day. But after all of this time, there is still nothing that Hargitay loves more than winding down next to a warm fire at night.

All of us have warm memories of sitting next to a fire. It’s a great way to unwind, spend time with friends, and of course, keep warm on a chilly night. But what about during the summer? Is there a bad time to have a fire? Evidently Law & Order: SVU star Mariska Hargitay doesn’t believe so. She was enjoying a fire on Monday night and decided to head to social media to ask her fans and followers if it is too soon.

She posted a cozy video of a fire burning in her fireplace along with some relaxing music.

“Too soon?” Hargitay captioned her most recent post.

However, when it comes right down to it, Law & Order: SVU fans are split as to whether late August is too early for a fire.

“Never,” one fan replied to Hargitay on Instagram.

“Girl my mom already put up Thanksgiving decorations it’s not too soon,” another fan commented.

Other fans, though, disagreed. They claimed that it’s still too hot out for a fire. They replied to Hargitay as well with messages like, “Mariska baby it’s 80 degrees,” and “Mariska it’s summer put the fire out.”

Season 23 of ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Will Air on September 23

Don’t worry all of you Law & Order: SVU fans out there. You don’t have too much longer to wait until the hit show is back on your TV screen.

As a matter of fact, Olivia Benson and company will officially be back for season 23 beginning on Thursday, September 23 at 8 p.m. And as if that wasn’t already good enough news, that episode will be followed up by the premiere of Law & Order: Organized Crime season 2 at 10 p.m. That show, of course, stars Christopher Meloni as Detective Elliot Stabler. He and Mariska Hargitay’s character were partners for the first 12 seasons of Law & Order: SVU.

In the meantime, we are just as excited as all of you for both shows to come back. Our days are always a little brighter with Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler in our lives, making sure that justice is served.
