The legal drama will be back in 2022.
September 29, 2021
OWN announced today that All Rise is being revived for a third season. The news comes four months after the legal drama was cancelled at its original network, CBS. Word is that 20 new episodes have been ordered for a return sometime next year.
The series premiered in 2019 and was a decent performer over the course of its run. However it was hit with behind-the-scenes controversy about a year ago when five writers reportedly left the show due to actions of showrunner Greg Spottiswood, who was subsequently fired.
All Rise follows the chaotic, but hopeful, lives of the judges, prosecutors, and public defenders at a Los Angeles courthouse as they work with clerks, bailiffs, and police to ensure justice is served to the city's people amidst a flawed legal process.

I am glad you enjoy All Rise. I do too. We have that in common.
However, please do not pretend about things that can harm you. It doesn't change the fact that they can harm you and it can end up making it worse for you because if you do not take precautions, you are more likely to to be harmed. Please do not be unafraid about COVID. It's killed two people in my life and affected another terribly with long haul symptoms that severely limit what she can do. You have the power to make yourself and those around you much safer than they are now. I hope that you will re-evaluate your thinking about this. We are all brothers and sisters in this world of ours and every life - including yours and those you love - is precious.
I still contend some shows were definitely awkward about addressing current events. If you want to do ripped from the headline storylines you need to have shades of gray and not black and white (no pun intended) storylines.
I'm actually surprised CBS All Access didn't just move it to streaming. They don't have that much content other than Star Trek.
