On Thursday, the 57-year-old was spotted maneuvering on the show’s New York City set using a pair of crutches, reported Today.

According to the outlet, Hargitay was wearing the same navy floral dress she wore on the show’s recent season 22 season finale.

In addition to the crutches under each arm, the star had a boot on her right foot.

Earlier this month, Hargitay opened up about her injury by sharing an image of a cast and bandage around her right ankle.

According to Page Six, Hargitay fell and broke her ankle while exiting a screening of the new Marvel movie “Black Widow” in the Hamptons.

The calamity also came less than two months after she previously broke her knee, tore a ligament, and suffered a fractured ankle.

Despite her injuries, Hargitay was all smiles as she began production on the 23rd season of “SVU.”

She also gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at the action by sharing video during a break from shooting a scene.

“SVU 23. It’s happening,” Hargitay said while sitting inside a vehicle as members of the crew are heard in the background. “Lights, camera, action. Thanks for watching.”
