The 60-year-old “zaddy” was spotted wearing a grey sleeveless hoodie that perfectly accentuated his jacked biceps on the NYC set of the NBC series, reported Page Six.

Meloni also gave fans a behind-the-scenes look of the “SVU” spinoff by sharing a video commemorating the first day of filming the sophomore season.

In the clip, Meloni wears a face mask as a member of the production staff goes over some of the day’s protocols. Other cast and crew members are seen in the background as a round of cheers and applause ensues to launch the start of production. At the tail end of the video, Meloni reappears to share his enthusiasm by saying, “Woop, woop!”

The actor captioned the clip simply, “L&O:OC #firstdayofschool #season2”

Production on the ratings hit began just days after NBC decided to scrap another “Law & Order”spinoff series, titled “Law & Order: For the Defense,” which was set to premiere in the fall.

“For the Defense,” which was given a straight-to-series order in May, was scheduled to air on Thursdays with “Law & Order: SVU” and the recently launched “Organized Crime.”

In lieu of a third “Law & Order” series, NBC will now air “The Blacklist” at 8pm on Thursdays before “SVU” and “Organized Crime.”

Mariska Hargitay, who is currently recovering from a broken ankle, will return for the 23rd season of “SVU,” which is set to premiere with a special two-hour episode on September 23.

The second season of “Law & Order: Organized Crime” will premiere immediately following “SVU” at 10pm ET/PT.
