Night Court will not be in recess anytime soon. NBC has renewed the Melissa Rauch and John Larroquette-led reboot for a second season.
“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,” Lisa Katz of NBC said, per The Hollywood Reporter.
“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.”
The premiere of the latest iteration of Night Court drew NBC’s largest comedy audience in nearly five years. Subsequent episodes have continued to garner high viewership numbers for the network.
The show is expected to wrap up production on season one this spring. Amid potential union strikes in the summer, the show is expected to continue working on season two through the late spring and early summer.
