That cluster of police cars and ambulances that rolled into Clinton Hill Wednesday will stick around for another day — but don't be alarmed, it’s just another day of filming for the Special Victims Unit.

NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU” will be filming scenes for season 17 in Clinton Hill for a second day on Thursday, closing off parts of Myrtle Avenue, according to City Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo.

The shoot will take place outside and inside 196 Clinton Ave., between Myrtle and Willoughby avenues, and cast and crew members are expected to be there until 9 p.m. Thursday, according to Cumbo's office.

Actors dressed in NYPD uniforms will be on set questioning witnesses at a fictional crime scene, according to the announcement from Cumbo’s office. Ambulances and patrol cars will be on the scene with flashing lights and a victim will be found. A press van will also be parked on a curb lane.

A spokeswoman for “Law & Order: SVU” did not confirm which actors would be on set for the shoot, but the main character, according to Cumbo’s announcement, appears to be a dog who will disturb the crime scene, and no doubt create quite the headache for those well-intentioned SVU detectives.

The episode will be called "Forty-One Witnesses" and it's scheduled to air Feb. 3 at 9 p.m. EST on NBC, according to spokeswoman Erika Lewis.

Drivers will be unable to park in the following locations through the end of the shoot:

  • The east and west side of Clinton Avenue, between Myrtle and Willoughby avenues.
  • The north and south side of Myrtle Avenue, between Clermont and Waverly avenues.
