It is time to return to Night Court. NBC has ordered a sequel series with John Larroquette returning as attorney Dan Fielding and Melissa Rauch taking on the judge duties as Harry Stone’s daughter. The original series aired for nine seasons on NBC between 1984 and 1992. Dan Rubin (who wrote the pilot), Melissa Rauch, and Winston Rauch will serve as executive producers. Larroquette will produce.
“Unapologetically optimistic judge Abby Stone (Melissa Rauch), the daughter of the late Harry Stone, follows in her father’s footsteps as she presides over the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court and tries to bring order to its crew of oddballs and cynics, most notably former night court prosecutor Dan Fielding (John Larroquette).”
The network will reveal a premiere date and further details for the series at a later time.
