Details on 'Night Court' Season 2.
Per Deadline, NBC has already renewed Night Court for a second season, given the first season's strong ratings right off the bat. The first four episodes of Night Court were NBC's largest comedy debut since Will & Grace back in 2017.
In addition to that, the premiere episode of the Night Court revival was, according to the same report, the top broadcast premiere of the 2022-23 season in both the 18-49 demographic/total audience.
We'll slam our gavels to that! Case dismissed! You can watch new episodes of Night Court every Tuesday on NBC at 8 p.m. EST.
