Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria ShriverNow the only 'Law & Order' left on the beat, 'SVU' has all sorts of headlines to rip from.

First up? According to TVLine, the series will take on the Arnold Schwarzenegger love child scandal.

The episode will be loosely inspired by the Schwarzenegger/Shriver real-life drama involving Schwarzenegger fathering a child with a member of the family's household staff.

In the episode, viewers will meet Andrew Raines, a 50something philanthropist and member of New York City's elite upper crust. The character's wife, Kathleen, is described as fiercely protective of her family.

Look for the Special Victims Unit to become involved when something happens with the couple's son, Tripp. The episode is set to air early in the season.

'SVU' is going through major changes for Season 13.

New showrunner Warren Leight has brought back Stephanie March and Diane Neal to reprise their ADA roles and Danny Pino and Kelli Giddish have joined the cast as two new detectives.

Meanwhile, Christopher Meloni -- yep, Detective Elliott Stabler -- and B.D. Wong will not be a part of the new season.

Marsika Hargitay's Olivia Benson will become a supervisor of sorts within the police force.

'Law & Order: SVU' returns to NBC Wed., Sept. 21 at 10PM.
