We have our first behind-the-scenes look at Law & Order: Organized Crime, courtesy of star Mariska Hargitay's Instagram.

Pictured next to her co-star Christopher Meloni, the pair are reuniting as Olivia Benson and Elliot Stabler for the upcoming Law & Order: SVU spin-off.

"It's all happening... #OC #PFL," she captioned the post.

As well as this gloomy black-and-white selfie, Hargitay uploaded two shots of the production's official directors-style chairs, with 'Stabler' and 'Benson' written on the fabric – and her followers were pretty excited by the behind-the-scenes photos.

"Go get it girl," Demore Barnes, who plays Deputy Chief Christian Garland on Law and Order: SVU, wrote.

"I'M LOSING MY S**T!" said Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones, while Will & Grace's Debra Messing (an SVU guest star back in 2011) also shared her excitement.

"I better be released from jail for this one!" wrote Brooke Shields, in a reference to her own guest stint on SVU in season 19.

"THIS IS WHAT WE NEEDED TO BEGIN HEALING AGAIN," one fan wrote, while a second remarked: "Never seen 2 people have a better connection on the screen."

Meloni and Hargitay appeared together in SVU for 12 seasons in total, while Organized Crime marks the first time in almost a decade that the former has put on Stabler's shoes.

This 13-episode spin-off is set to follow Stabler's return to the New York City Police Department, where he'll confront organised crime after suffering a "devastating personal loss" (via People).

Law & Order: SVU airs Thursdays on NBC in the US. The show airs on Sky Witness in the UK, with select episodes available on NOW TV.
