The popular NBC comedy “Night Court” will return for a second season.
Abby Stone, daughter of the late Harry Stone, is an unflinching optimist who, like her father before her, presides over the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court and strives to bring order to its crew of oddballs and cynics, most notably former night court prosecutor Dan Fielding.
“It’s so rewarding to have audiences respond and return to a show in which they have such incredibly warm feelings, and, more broadly, it’s testament to how broadcast is still a huge driver of communal viewing,” said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. “A huge thank you to our studio partners, a wonderful cast, incredibly talented writers and producers, and a crew that has transformed a lower Manhattan courtroom into a true family.”
Channing Dungey, Chairman and CEO, Warner Bros. Television Group, said: “The verdict is in and the ‘new-boot’ of ‘Night Court‘ is a hit! The series’ razor-sharp humor makes the show a weekly must-watch. We’re overjoyed that court will remain in session and return with new cases for season two. We’re so grateful to our colleagues at NBC, to the richly talented creative team led by Melissa Rauch, Winston Rauch, Dan Rubin, and John Larroquette, and to the stellar ensemble cast.”
Melissa Rauch, John Larroquette, India de Beaufort, Kapil Talwalkar, and Lacretta are among those included in the cast.
Dan Rubin writes and executive produces. Co-executive producers include Melissa and Winston Rauch. John Larroquette is in charge of the production.
Production companies After January Productions and Universal Television, part of the Universal Studio Group, collaborate with Warner Bros. Television on the show.
