Ever since the return of Night Court on NBC, fans have been marveling at the kooky-yet-hilarious cases presented in this version of court.

The reboot showcases a continuation of the story told throughout the ‘80s to early ‘90s with Harry Stone’s daughter, Abby (Melissa Rauch), taking the reins of Judge at the Manhattan municipal court, the same position that her late father once famously had.

Night Court was officially renewed for a second season in early 2023.

There’s no need to panic, folks! Fans of NBC’s Night Court will be pleased to learn that a Season 2 is in the works.

On Feb. 2, 2023, Variety shared that NBC gave the sitcom an early Season 2 renewal.

“The verdict is in, and the ‘new-boot’ of ‘Night Court’ is a hit,” Channing Dungey, chairman and CEO of Warner Bros. Television Group told the outlet. “The series’ razor-sharp humor makes the show a weekly must-watch. We’re overjoyed that the court will remain in session and return with new cases for Season 2. We’re so grateful to our colleagues at NBC, to the richly talented creative team led by Melissa Rauch, Winston Rauch, Dan Rubin, and John Larroquette, and to the stellar ensemble cast.”

In case you’ve been out of the loop, the writer’s strike throughout Hollywood has impacted many TV shows. GQ shares that the Writers Guild of America has currently traded in their creativity for the picket line to protest the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers for fair pay, suitable working conditions, and other grievances.

The strike began on May 2, 2023, and production on Night Court is expected to cease during the interim of the strike. Sources told Deadline that production on Season 2 of Night Court was off during the week of May 8, 2023 and was expected to resume filming the following week.

Since the strike has pushed back filming schedules, it's hard for the network to share a set premiere date with confidence. Hopefully, all parties can agree so Night Court and other TV shows can resume production with workers receiving fair conditions and compensation.

Night Court airs on Tuesday night on NBC at 8 p.m. EST.
