‘Night Court’ Renewed For Season 2 At NBC

NBC has renewed Night Court for a second season following the airing of the revival’s first four episodes.

NBC says that Night Court has reached an audience of 25.7M in delayed viewing since it premiered on January 17. The premiere episode ranked as the No. 1 broadcast premiere of the 2022-23 season in both the ad-friendly 18-49 demographic and in total audience. In total viewers, it raked in the most viewers for any comedy premiere since The Conners debuted on ABC in 2018. It was NBC’s best comedy premiere since Will & Grace in 2017.

The new Night Court follows judge Abby Stone (Melissa Rauch), the daughter of the late Harry Stone, as she follows in her father’s footsteps presiding over the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court. Throughout Season 1, she tries to bring order to its crew of oddballs and cynics, most notably former night court prosecutor Dan Fielding (John Laroquette).

Television Group. “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.”
