Night Court sequel in works at NBC
The reboot will be written and executively produced by Dan Rubin based on the original series created by Reinhold Weege
NBC is developing a follow-up to the classic legal comedy series, Night Court. The reboot will be written and executively produced by Dan Rubin based on the original series created by Reinhold Weege.
Co-star John Larroquette will reprise his Emmy-winning character and produce the show. Melissa Rauch, a The Big Bang Theory alumna, will also executively produce the reboot.
Deadline reported that the Warner Bros TV show will follow Abby Stone, who follows her late 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 (Larroquette).
Abby Stone's father Harry Stone led the original drama as a young, unorthodox judge of the Manhattan municipal court. Harry Anderson, who portrayed Harry Stone, passed away in 2018 at the age of 65. Abby, the new lead character, was not a part of the original show, which aired on NBC for nine seasons between 1984 and 1992.
