All Rise fans have been given hope for a continuation of the cancelled CBS drama. Deadline has reported that Warner Bros TV is in talks with OWN to renew the series for a third season. The series was cancelled in May by CBS, and contracts for the cast expired in June. The talks are in the early stages and were made possible by the merger between Warner Bros Media and Discovery, Inc. (which owns 95% of OWN) in recent months.
Warner Bros TV has started to negotiate new contracts with the cast which includes Simone Missick, Wilson Bethel, Marg Helgenberger, Jessica Camacho, J. Alex Brinson, Lindsay Mendez, Ruthie Ann Miles, Lindsay Gort, and Audrey Corsa. The drama follows the lives, in and out of court, of the judges and others involved within the legal system in Los Angeles.
All Rise was cancelled by CBS after some issues behind the scenes. Greg Spottiswood left as showrunner in March with Dee Harris-Lawrence taking over the position for the rest of the season. It is likely she would continue on as showrunner if the show is saved. An order of 20 episodes is possible for All Rise season three.
What do you think? Are you a fan of All Rise? Were you upset that CBS cancelled the drama? Would you watch the series on OWN if it was picked up by the cable channel?
